Went to Arizona for my niece's wedding. While we were there we decided to take a detour and go see the Grand Canyon. It was beautiful, although I would not recommend taking small children! I think my blood pressure went up and stayed there during the whole trip! I am a natural worrier, but this was crazy! There are guard rails, but not everywhere and it's very easy to walk right up to the edge. One missed step, even near guard rails and you could go right over! My kids kept telling me how mean I was because they could only go where there were rails. Ya, I think I'm ok with that! Looking into the vastness of the Grand Canyon was very humbling and scary all at the same time. I am in awe at the beauty of it. But very aware of how dangerous it can be. The kids had a good time and all of them said seeing this was the highlight of their trip, so I guess it was worth it! Just wish we had done it when they were a little older!
My boys thought it would be fun to climb these rocks. Luckily it was not close to the edge. I love these kids so much! They are the light of my life and I don't know what I would do without them! I pray I never have to find out! I thank my Heavenly Father every day for trusting me to be their mother!
