Giddyup!

Wow, this thing still works! Thought I would share a picture of J running in the 200m hurdles.  He initially started the season doing longer events and tried out on a whim.  He ended up being pretty good at the shorter sprints and made varsity for this event and the 1600m relay. We hit the track at 5pm today… he didn’t run til like 645 and then for 1 minute 🙂…

Soccer then and now…

I think I will past a few then and nows:) Original Gangstas

HWY 12

Seeing as its been several months since we have documented anything, I’ve been told to get on it.  Here we go! Our trip from Zion was intended to go thru Bryce Canyon via Hwy. 12.  Unfortunately, we should have planned more time for this portion of the trip as the views would have been stellar along the way. By the time we reached Bryce Canyon, it was raining heavily, so…

Westward 2015: Zion National Park (HDR-fest)

After driving up 89a, we got to ZNP without a lot of time to spare before sunset.  We had already decided to cancel our camping plans and had no hotel reservation for the evening.  The forcast was for thunderstorms and potential flash floods. We decided to take a quick hike on the canyon overlook trail in light rain.  The boys quickly decided this was more fun than the GC due…

Westward 2015: 89a

Our drive to Zion was one of my favorite parts of the trip.  I love being off the grid with long two lanes between us and our destination.  As we drove, the gps told us to remain o n 89 while Waze told us to turn on 89a.  After consulting the map, we actually did a u-ee and headed back to catch 89a. I fired up the GPS prior to…

Westward 2015 pt 3: Bright Angel

Trying to blog this in the car on my tablet wirelessly teathered to my phone…here goes nuthin. After a day of rest at the cabin, we headed back up to the GC to take on the Bright Angel trail. We planned two stops on the trail for 3 miles down and three miles up.  This is a popular trail however it is strenuous and high altitude.  We lost zero children…

Westward 2015 pt 2: Grand Canyon

Looking at the forecast for the two days planned at the Grand Canyon, it looks like we have good weather for the most part.  We settled on biking for day one, cabin day for day two and hiking for day 3.  Zion and camping appear to be in danger of being rained out. We rented bikes for half a day leaving at 1230 and needing to return by 5pm.  We…

Westward 2015 pt 1

We are here enjoying a day off in the rental home.  Our trip to date has been packed with activities and driving getting in as much as we can considering the distance we have travelled so far.  2000 miles and the van is doing great.  Texas and New Mexico greeted us with strong, gusty winds which made the car top carrier howl and brought our MPG down below 20 for…
