The GRAND Grand Canyon

On our way down to Arizona, we took a side trip to the Grand Canyon. If anyone ever said it's just a big hole in the ground...well, it's more than that. It was very, very cold- 29 degrees, snowy and windy. I could only stay out in that neg 999 windshill factor in shorts and flip flops for a short time.

We stopped by the Grand Canyon on our way home and the weather was so much better-a whopping 49 degrees and sunny.Builder Mike wants to hike down on mules, we'll see...

Arizona kids

Builder Mike and I went to Arizona (Mesa) to visit Elizabeth and the kids. We brought them our old ladybug sandbox and Jack thought it was his new hiding place...

I usually take my photos on aperature setting, but I'm trying to branch out and try shutter-well, I think I like it- I like my action shots!

Jack at the park!

The Kitchen Continues...

Remember when we taped the kitchen off a few weeks ago? Well, we took the next step  and tore down all the sheetrock, exposing the insides of the walls, so Builder Mike can start the elecrical and plmbing.

Under the kitchen floor is the "cowboy" room, the grandkids bedroom, and Builder Mike is worried about how stong the floor is, and he needs a place to run pipes and wire.So we tore down the ceiling...

So, here in the basement, the ceiling has been torn out. Guess who tore it down and guess who carried it out to the trash...Can I tell you how much I hate sheetrock!

I have to say, this isn't the fun part yet, but it's coming, I just know.
