Travels South

We headed South for the weekend. We stayed with Chads Brother Rhett and his Family in Prescott, then we met up with some Friends to hike the Grand Canyon for a day, then we went back to Prescott for Easter. We had a great trip! Here's some of the highlights...

Easter Morning

The Easter Bunny left B's Basket on the weight bench right outside our room...it's a good thing too...He found it right away!

On Friday, Rhett and Jen watched Bridger and we went to hike the Grand Canyon. It was Amazing! I can't believe I've lived close to it for so long and hadn't hiked it before. We met up with our my best friend since birth, Mandy, and her husband Matt. We hiked down the Kiabab trail and out the Bright Angel trail. That's 17 miles!!! Straight down ...across 5 miles...then straight up.

I still can't believe that we did that!!! The next two days I could barely walk, my calf's were so sore! I looked pretty funny on Easter Sunday trying to wear high heels to my Bro & Sis in laws ward...it's painful just thinking about it!
I Highly recommend hiking the Grand Canyon though...just be sure to train a little if you decide to hike down and out in the same day. Thanks Mandy and Matt for bringing us along..It was so great to see you guys!

It has been awhile since I have taken a peak at your life. 1st of all, Bridger looks awesome in his Easter outfit. I Love it, and way to go on the hike. I love that kind of stuff, although it has been awhile. I guess living by the beach has made me a little lazy!
