Earlier last week Daniel decided we should drive up to the grand canyon. I thought about it for a minute and concluded it would be nice to get out of the house, and seeing as how I really enjoy being in such close proximity to Daniel for hours on end, thought it was a good idea. So Friday night we started our little trip. Note to self, dont go on road trips with Daniel when he is grumpy, it will only make me grumpy. After a long and grumpy drive we stopped and spent the night in Flagstaff, then got up on Saturday and drove the rest of the way. Once we were there, the kids were impressed for maybe a minute, and then ready to move on. Another note to self, taking a two year old to the grand canyon where there isnt much in regards to keeping hyperactive toddlers from running right off the edge into the thousand feet drops into the grand canyon is NOT a good idea. A few people even pointed out how they thought I was a negligent mother in the fact I didnt have him tied to a leash. SO after a couple hours, we started the drive back home. upon which I concluded that this was not a favorite trip in the history of the Jackson family. I think its safe to say this weekend I will be perfectly content staying at home.
