    Family Vacation

    Thursday, December 20th, 2012

    Last week I went with my family to the Grand Canyon!

    Nick and I have both been before but this was my boys 1st time!

    We hiked down into the canyon a ways.

    My oldest took our pic for us while we were taking a break.

    I handed off the camera many times and asked my husband to take shots with me in them.

    It is important that I have proof I was there!

    Plus I know it will be fun to look back on later.

    Second hike in.

    I held my youngest little man’s hand a lot.

    It was really not as scary as I thought it would be though.

    That did not stop me from dreaming all night about steep drop off’s…

    He brings out my mature side…

    Pueblo in Arizona.

    What can I say, sometimes I have something better to look at than the camera.

    Red Rocks in Arizona!

    This was an unexpected surprise, so beautiful!

    Painted Desert.

    Sandia Mountains at sunset!

    Getting to hike on a snow covered mountain was another wonderful surprise!

    These boys were so excited!

    My oldest kept saying, “you found it!!!!”.

    My happy place.

    Some fun before we headed back home!

    Make sure you get in the shot this holiday season!

    Take a deep breath and hand over that camera!

    If you are not happy with your weight here are a few tips.

    -have them take it from above (low adds on pounds)

    -angle yourself (you do not want to be the broadest to the camera, make your husband stand straight on so he looks bigger! he he he).

    Check out Emily at the Anderson Crew for more inspiration about getting in the shot.

    Going to miss this ~Life Changing Experiances

    An alarm rang on my phone.

    I looked down to see what I was supposed to remember and smiled.

    It said, “Appreciate the little things”.

    My reminder every Monday morning to look for something in my day to remember, to document, to cherish.

    The only thing was, that morning I was looking at this.

    And a lot of this…

    I was with my boys as they experienced the Grand Canyon for the first time.

    I did not need the reminder that day.

    I was cherishing every moment.

    Look for a moment with me today.

    Something precious and fleeting, little clothes in the laundry, little hands in yours, or maybe sharing in a first experience.

    They are all beautiful.
