Our family at the Grand Canyon – May 2011

After visiting the Grand Canyon, I now know why it is one of the Eighth Wonders of the World.  It is no hype.  It’s truly breathtaking and deserves all the raves it gets.  If you have never been, I’d for sure put it on the top 10 list of family vacations to do while your kids are still at home.  I know we will be back again when the kids are a bit older for some more adventures down in the canyon.
