They call him the cleaner...

Our Journey Today

I knew there was a path that led behind the Fiesta to Acacia Park, one of our favorites.  But we have not ventured out there, until they started working on the trail some more, so today was the adventure day.  AND WOW!!!  Ivan rode, Ro foot peddled, and mom got to carry Ro AND a trike a few times home and can you believe he's still nap free?  But it was FUN!!!  And the covers at the park are new, LOVE IT!!!

Grand Canyon Adventure


The Sky Walk is just a mere 1.5-2 hours away from our house, and we've been talking about going.  So today was the day, B ACTUALLY had the day off, how about that!?!?!  So the adventure began, and it was SO not what we thought.

You turn off 93 and go through a podunk town, then turn off to the Grand Canyon and...  End up on a gravel road for about 14 miles long, where we saw crazy wild cows, then onto a paved road?  Really?  Then we got to the "Terminal."  It's an airport and a bus station in the middle of nowhere, and this was where we paid for our excursion into the Grand Canyon.  YES!!!  Ro was the only one that was free.

We had to take tour buses to the Sky Walk, which reminded me way too much of band trips except alcohol free, but Ivan and Ro loved being free of buckles.  And it was a pretty penny.  Pay for the bus, pay for the walk on the Sky Walk...  Then the cool picture...  WOW!!!  And we could have spent more!!!  But it was very cool.

Hindsight being 20/20, we really didn't need the Sky Walk, but it was very cool.  The ledge where you could just stand and even jut fall into the canyon, OH MY GAWL!!!  I have never had my mommy mode go so overboard.

Twinja Update

Novella and Evora are doing JUST great!!!  They are so cute and adorable and are actually easier on mommy than Lotus, their big sister, ever has been.  Here is their latest picture, I thought I would share with all of you.  Evora is on the left, and Novella (my chunky monkey) is on the right.
