A Long Awaited Post...

So even though I haven't updated in like forever, we definitely have been up to A LOT.  Lots of parties, family stuff and the glorious return of Christina from Japan.  Glorious return.  Anyways, we didn't take a lot of pics because we are forgetful like that.  But for labor day weekend, we decided to take a week and head to the grand canyon.  Neither of us had ever been there before (at least to our recollection) so we made the plans to head on out.  Unfortunately, Jake's grandpa Jack had to be hospitalized during this time so we had a bit of change of plans.  We still eventually got to the Grand Canyon, but we took the 600+ round trip detour to SLC to see him.  Poor guy...but on the bright side we got to hang out with some Triggs.  They are good times...

 So after some fun with the fam, we drove back on down to AZ.  WE took the scenic route and saw some fun and beautiful scenery along the way.  We stayed at Jacob's Lake, near the north Rim for a few days then headed over to the south rim to see the sight on the way home.  and Hazel and Zeke love any excuse to dig in the dirt. 

Just some of the wildlife...
