April Vacation in Review

It's hard to believe I've gone a week without blogging or being on the internet.  Or...doing school work.  Gasp, I know!!

This is the first vacation where I actually didn't complete school work and now I'm feeling a bit overwhelmed.  Tomorrow is Sunday!

This isn't school related but I thought I'd share.  My husband and I took a trip to Arizona this vacation.  Let me just say it was A-mazing.  I did cringe though as I shut the door and left behind the mound of school work that still has to be completed.

We have both wanted to visit Arizona, especially to see the Grand Canyon.  Now, with my fear of heights and flying it seemed like a perfect fit (sarcasm inserted here)!  No better way to get over your fears.

This honestly seemed like one of the looooongest vacations I've ever had and I mean this in a good way.  We had a BLAST!  We went to the Petrified National Forest, hiked trails in the Grand Canyon.  I hiked right around 16 miles from the rim to the canyon floor and dipped my toes in the Colorado River.  We hiked and shopped in Sedona and went to the Saguaro National Park.

The weather was perfect at the beginning of the week but by the end it got HOT!  It reached 100 degrees on Friday.

Here are some pics I wanted to share!  I hope everyone had a restful and fun April vacation.


  1. It looks like a blast. I've never been there. I hope you wore sunscreen. :)
