“Though we travel the world over to find the beautiful, 
we must carry it with us, or we find it not.”
  Ralph Waldo Emerson

Last week was David's spring break and since today is his birthday(BTW HAPPY BIRTHDAY!) I planned a little surprise family vacation. He knew that we were going on a trip but I did not tell him where until we were already on the road. Our first family vacation was to the majestic and awe-inspiring Grand Canyon. We had such a wonderful time. Dave even used the word exhilarating, which for those of you who know him, is a pretty big deal. While Dave was climbing out onto the treacherous rocks to get closer to the edge, I looked out over the canyon with my boys.  I loved seeing the excitement in Aiden's eyes as he gazed out over one of the seven natural wonders of the world. I know that he cannot truly grasp what he is looking at, but to me his enthusiasm is it's own natural wonder.  Every once in awhile I get to catch my breath, step back from every day life and realize just how lucky I am and how much beauty there is in the world. I am so blessed to be a part of this little family and I cannot wait for all the vacations we take together in the future. On the way home we also visited a really awesome place called Bearizona. Basically, you get to drive through several habitats and see tons of really cool animals up close and personal! I highly recommend it, we had a blast! I hope that I can provide my children with the same level of enjoyment of family vacations and travel that my parents did for me. I always had such a wonderful time with my family growing up and it is one of my dearest hopes that I can do that for my little boys.
