Mom and sisters checking out the view from the South Rim.
Anna... (try not to get dizzy. If heights make you nervous, stay away from the Grand Canyon)
I kept wondering...
Kenny demonstrates. Aunt Kathy and Uncle Doug (my dad's older brother - and Kenny's favorite.)
The sisters at a ruin
Jill at one of many, many gift shops
ruins or gift shop?
Grandma takes a break on one of Mother Nature's benches
We were having a cherry seed spitting contest off the rim. I caught Aunt Kathy just as the seed is forever sent to the hole. If in twenty years there's a cherry orchard growing on the south rim, I accept no blame. Later, my mom pretended to fall over the ledge, my dad pretended to jump, and Becca faked puking over the rim. My grandma was so proud.
Awwww. I *heart* him
Grandma puckers up for the camera (very very rare) with her man Glayde who was the hero with the binoculars. We saw condors! Can we talk about an uglier bird? Seriously gross...like a sunburned vulture. We were also almost attacked by spoiled squirrels. We got away, but the little boy with the ice cream cone wasn't so lucky. Collateral damage. We had to give the squirrel something.
Kenny. Who needs crayons when you have condiments, utensils, and lemons. Again, my grandma was so proud.
Coming up: Bedrock and Williams, AZ. Hope you're ready.
