Grandyon Canyon

Adie called it the "Grandyon Canyon"! The kids were a little scared when they first approached the rim on our tour. On the first stop, it started pouring rain and the wind was blowing hard. We all ran back to the bus soaked to the skin. Even with the rain, it was a beautiful day and the canyon was breathtaking. Pictures don't do it justice.

It was alot to cover in one day. The train ride was about 2 hours each way. There are parts of the track that don't allow speeds of more than 10-15 mph. The scenery was beautiful. I would have liked to have had more time at the park before boarding the train to return to the hotel.

But the kids had fun and that was the whole point of the trip!

Grand Canyon Railway

I'm taking the kids and grandkids to the Grand Canyon over Memorial Day weekend for the Grand Canyon Railway trip. We're all excited! I've always wanted to take that train and I love the GC. The kids have never been there so they are really in for a treat!


There's an App for that!

Yes, I'm listening to Alabama on my new iPhone! Unfortunately I don't get cell service here at home, but I didn't with Verizon either, so no biggie. I can get wi-fi through my wireless router so I can download apps and send/receive email but no texting or calls at home.

It will really free me up workwise to be able to get email if I need to run to town, etc. YeeHaw!
