Day 1--Jacob Lake & Camping

Today we drove to the North Rim of the Grand Canyon via Jacob Lake—and of course stopped along the way for some YUMMY cookies! The zucchini lemon are my favorite, it doesn’t gross me out, having a veggie in there, my mom used to throw zucchini in everything growing up because we would always have a TON of it in our garden. I love it! Driving in the motor home has been an interesting experience. I thought that Jack would be happier if he could be out of his car seat for part of the time, but he just wants to be up front looking out the front window, so he drove me crazy all day. He ended up being in his seat—a LOT so that he wasn’t wandering around. Josh was funny, he was up in the bed over the cab and says, “Mom, why don’t you come up here with me—oh yeah, cause you’ll probably break it!” Ouch. We were talking later about a mountain lion that had been sighted near our camp, and who he would go after, and Emie says, “We’ll just feed Josh to him, then we’ll all be happy.” Ha! It was funny to see him around the campfire—you give a 6 year old boy a stick and fire and he is happier than anything! The day ended with a friendly game of UNO—except for the fighting and the tears that are inevitable in our family! UGH!
