Last week, I went here to visit! It seems like I go here a lot, doesn't it?
Probably because I do.
We got to visit with my family, which was really fun!
<--------I'm pretty sure they all think it's me.
I mean, after all... right?
We got to hike to the top of a really steep trail, which took the whole morning. There was a guest book you could sign at the time and everything, so you KNOW it was a real hike. If you ever find that same mountain, don't look for my name in the guestbook, though, because I asked The Brain to sign in for me. I think he used one of his usual pseudonyms; M. Mouse, Ronald Reagan, or his current trendy favorite Barack Obama.
I have no idea how many wedding reception books I let him sign for the first few years of our marriage before I caught on to the fact that he was doing that. I just picture those poor brides wondering if they have the beginnings of dimensia because they just can't remember Mr. and Mrs. Monty Python attending their reception.
The hike was fun, but you knew I was an outdoorsy person already, right?
(yes, I made this one!!)
Anyway, I got to see this for the first time ever!
But it looked more like this the day we were there
Hey! If you ever get a chance to ride THIS you should do it! There's a real Polar Express train operated by the Grand Canyon Rail Road in December. My parents took the whole family as a Christmas gift and it was so darn fun. We wore our jammies and they gave us hot chocolate, cookies, and we sang Christmas carols while the conductor punched our tickets. The kids were completely enthralled, and you know me and trains. I am all about a good train ride!
On the way home, Santa came through and gave everyone one of these!
When it came time for this, I thought about it.... But then I came to my senses.
Sort of sums up resolution making in one succinct phrase, doesn't it?
