Grand Canyon

OK so I was super excited about the Grand Canyon and the kids were pseudo excited. We spent the day hiking and hiking and in the end they were super tired.

The girls were not keen on hiking for 45 minutes straight but when bribed…I mean encouraged with Gatorade they both were troopers. They were totally fascinated with the part of the trail where a control burn got out of control.

When we finally stopped hiking we had covered over 4 miles of canyon and the girls were TIRED. They agreed to let me see the sunset on the canyon IF I let them sit to watch it. I allowed it because they did look beat and had been troopers

The girls so done with walking.
