I know, I know...

It's been FOREVER since I posted. I figured since I had a little time to spare that I would just post as much as I could!! So here goes............

These are some pics from the honeymoon in Vegas...well these are actually in Arizona! Our day trip to the Grand Canyon....This is how it worked:
We got picked up near our hotel around 6:30 I think. It took us about 2 hours to get to the grand canyon from the strip! And the last 13 or so miles was on a dirt road!! In a bus!
Once we arrived we could do whatever. There were buses there that would take you to 3 different stops at the canyon. 1st stop: SKYWALK!! I don't have pics to post of this because no cameras were allowed. It was spectacular! And a little creepy. We had to put on special booties over our shoes before walking on the glass. Kind of like what a dr would wear during a surgery.
The 2nd stop was where these three pics all came from. They had food here...which was okay. We stayed here the longest. It was the best stop because there was so much to see.
Then we went to our last stop- the indian reservation. It was set up to look like the old days. With a little general store, jail, etc. It was our least favorite stop but still interesting...
See the bottom picture? We walked and walked around the canyon to get to that spot and that's where the picture in the middle was taken. Make sense? From that point the view was amazing! It was the tallest point we could get to.

It was really scary because there were NO barriers at all along the canyon. You could walk as close as you wanted....which wasn't too close for me!
The bad part was it was HOT!! Not humid- just a dry kind of hot. We drank LOTS of water.

And that's it!! We were EXHAUSTED by the time we got back to our was around 6:30. A long trip but totally worth it :o) Thanks Lee and Sue! We loved it!!!!


Can you believe I painted this?? Me neither...

I had a BLAST at the paint party...even though I complained about my painting a LOT! Once I got home I loved it! It was super hard for me. ...straight lines and paint do not go hand in hand in my opinion.
I can't wait to try something else!!! Thanks Teresa!
