Grand Canyon

Now. It's maybe noon once we left four corners monument. The Grand Canyon was four hours away. My dad was with us and he has never been to the Grand Canyon before he is not the type to come all this way by his self. My adorable hubby asked if we wanted to go. Of course I said yes I love road trips besides seizing the moment we tend to do that a lot. What's life if you can't do that? My dad didn't know what to say so the trip began. I love the mountain view they are gorgeous. It's breathtaking I could get lost just in the moment. However the curves in the road takes my breath away in a different light one wrong move you are toast. Be safe please now I have that out of the way take a look at these.
Grand Canyon 2015

It's very peaceful looking at the edge in amazement. That this sits in the middle of nowhere. I was a little on edge because as you ride to site to site there are just a few fences from the edge. With two small kids that is just crazy. One of the signs said a man used to take people by horse around the canyon that would take 12 hours one way. That is crazy to even think about. I mean it did take me thirty hours to get to Aztec from Florida. I couldn't do that on a horse.

They do charge per person not sure how much. This trip was well worth the hot weather and headache. Pack water since you are in the desert heat. This is a must see.

Now to complete our road trip off to Las Vegas. We still have four hours to go. Thank God we have three people who can drive. That makes it's a lot easier.

Zombie Games

I hear screaming coming from Justin's bedroom. Christopher comes hauling out of the room runs right into Justin.
"I saw something!" He says His eyes are big and wide.
"What? Jay ask
"It's under the bed." Christopher yells
They both bend down to take a look under the bed. I'm peeking around the corner I hear Christopher say "It's okay Jay It's a dryer sheet."
They both go back pretending to shoot each other and zombies. Children imagination are wonderful even with the age gap between my boys. It's breathtaking to see how close they are. Their brotherly bond is strong. They fight like hell sometimes but never hold a grudge. They do just about everything together. They are growing up just thinking in two weeks Justin will be twelve years old going into six grade in August. Christopher will start preschool as well. My boys will always be my babies. They are my heart and soul. I'm a very proud momma. Even if my nest is slowly emptying.

Justin and Rain

He started his bucket list. Only a week out of school and he's bored. It started raining cats and dogs today its Florida it's going to every day now. Justin thought it would be a good idea to go wash the car in the pouring rain. The mom in me started to say no. Then I realize I have to take advantage of the situation he's wanting to watch the car and it's one less thing I have to do before our trip. I let him took pictures and videos. He was laughing the whole time. He was a little bummed out because he still had to go get the hose to rinse off the car because it stopped raining so hard. Christopher opt out of it he didn't find it to be funny or exciting. The things we do to stay entertained in the time of boredom. After Justin wash the car and rinsed it. I pulled into the garage dried it then did the interior. I even vacuumed it I just have to keep it that way over the weekend.

I love these moments because we might not have them again. I love being a mommy!

Getting fit runs in our family!

Getting fit runs in our family. This morning we made it to circuit taining.  Justin made the first round.  I'm so proud he tried. He kept asking what I did twice a week.  Today he found out.  He had a lot of fun!
He keeps asking to run a 5k because he enjoys it. Takes me back when he was in kindergarten asking why his school didn't have a track team. He makes me laugh. I don't know too many five year olds who run track. We are looking into it. The only problem we keep running into is his age. A parent has to run with him. Not that I mind but I'm not carrying his brother.  No way that would be interesting!  
Justin was amazing today! He had a smile on his face the whole time.  
We are also at
 Day 21: 200 side bends and 35 burpees.  I set Justin at 25 for each. 

He has a little six pack. His voice is changing. He has a mustache.  My little boy is growing up.  He is taller than me. Now I feel short and bad when I have to raise my voice. Which isn't often. I have to look up to him to do it. I find it funny that he still goes back and fourth with his brother.  Like age doesn't matter. Despite the large age gap they have a wonderful relationship. I have a video of today on Facebook. Don't mind it being shaky I was a little worn out.
