Grand Canyon & Fish Lake!

We got up early to head to the Grand Canyon and hiked down to the lookout points, some of which were steep and a little narrow. I’m not one of those girls who glistens when I exercise, I SWEAT! I was dripping sweat by the time we got down there—not even to mention that we had to come back UP the hill! It was beautiful, and certainly worth the hike—even though my kids gave me some scary moments running and jumping along the trail. Emie and Erin hiked up to the top of this HUGE rock for the best view of all—too bad they didn’t have the camera with them! Check them out—crazy girls! Jack kept holding on to the guard rail and swinging on it. Someone asked us if we were gonna be like Michael Jackson and swing him over the side—Emie says, “No, but you could drop Josh over the side if you want.” All the girls were laughing, and I am starting to wonder if they have a conspiracy to kill this boy. I better watch out for him!

We left at lunchtime and headed for Fish Lake, Utah, Todd’s old stomping grounds. It is a beautiful lake surrounded by gorgeous white quaking aspen trees. Todd lived in Richfield, Utah growing up and his parents had a cabin up here that they would come to all the time. We made dinner, roasted marshmallows, and played greed to end the day! What a fun time!
