Grand Canyon Trip

Our trip to the Grand Canyon was incredible. I still can't believe this is the first time I have ever been, its a truly amazing place! I am so happy that my sister Ana was able to come out and share this experience with us. I have a TON of pictures so I tried to get just a few of my favorites. The pictures could not capture the beauty of this place, definitely a place you need to see for yourself!!


This is the trail we "hiked". It wasn't much of a hike because we had both kids and the huge double stroller so we had to stay on a paved path. I am hoping to be able to go back and do some more real hiking down into the Canyon some day...Andrew wants to do the Rim to Rim hike, I don't know if that is something I would do though because you camp during the hike and that might be too much for me!

This is Abby as we came around the corner and saw the Canyon for the first time. It was absolutely breathtaking. It looked fake, just like a picture.







I like this picture of Ana with Andrew and Abby in the background. Every few feet we walked we enjoyed a different view.


Taking a break on the bench





Olivia and I hung out while Andrew, Abby and Ana went into the gift shop. I felt bad for Olivia because she wanted to be out of the stroller so badly and explore but there wasn't a ton of opportunity for that, but we did it as much as possible.


Abby loved having her Aunt Ana with us!





Me and my little sister!



I thought it was cool that you could use your cell phone for an audio tour!
I love this picture because both girls are more interested in the beautiful view than smiling for the camera!!

Just enjoying the view



A different perspective. You could look down in the canyon and see people hiking and the people on the donkey tours.


All of us!!




This tree was awesome and it was a very popular spot for picture taking!
