So we headed to the Rim for a few days camping. . . I really needed a break! Of course I worked like a dog to get ready to leave, hauled our trailer up to the mountains and we had a wonderful time. We enjoyed the cool fall weather (it even dipped to freezing the last night!) We took a couple of neat hikes, one to a mountain lake and the other to a mountain sink hole. I only had to carry the twins for part of the way on each hike (yeah me. . . 45lbs of added weight!) We found a very cool abandoned "fort" that the kids really enjoyed -- it was adorable, right down to the mason jar with wild flowers in it! We played lots of games, ate way too much food and we saw several deer too! Here's a few pictures of a very memorable time.
So now we're back, I've done 14 loads of laundry, cleaned for hours and the break is all but a memory! I guess that's what family vacations are for. . . the memories!
