Things to do before I die #1

Raft the Grand Canyon

Caution! Rambling on ahead!

Don't think I'm crazy posting this as my #1...because these are in no particular order. But have you ever woken up and thought to yourself "Why didn't I do that when I had the chance?" Well, I do it a lot and then have to stop myself because I am happy being a mommy. However, there are some things that I just can't let go. The most fresh on my mind is this Grand Canyon trip. To raft the Grand Canyon you must draw a permit. The process has recently changed into a lottery type situation, but it used to be that you would put your name in and wait. Well, my Uncle finally drew a permit this year after waiting 25 years! I KNOW!!! INSANE!!! So, I have grown up knowing that I would be able to go once someone drew. Well, the trip is over 2 weeks long and I have 2 kids, and one is 3 months old. As a teenager I told myself " I can't be married or have kids so that I can go down the Grand Canyon." Ha! Look at me now. So, guess who went in my stead? That's right, my Mr. I'm actually glad that he could go. I just hope he realizes that had he not married me, he most likely would have never gone. So, thanks are in order ;) But day I'll be there taking on the white water. As for now, it's on my list!

What is on your list?

More to come...

I'm sorry you couldn't be at the Grand Canyon River Trip right now, But thank you for staying home and tending my Grandchildren. They are so lucky to have you as their mom. Thank you for letting TyRell enjoy the experience. Love You.

I'm proud of you for sending him, I know it isn't easy to send your spouse on a vacation (especially if that means you are a single parent for a while!) but I'm sure he is having a blast and is thinking of you guys!
