Thursday morning we woke up early and headed out from Zion to Grand Canyon. Driving up on the Grand Canyon was very cool. What a site! The first day we just set up camp and took a shuttle out to one of the points for a sunset view. Friday the Matsons showed up around lunchtime and the PAR-TAY began. Watching the kids with their cousins was so much fun. It was a perfect ending to our most fabulous vacation. On Saturday, Trent, Rob and the 4 older boys took a hike down the Canyon and left Emily and I at camp with 6 kids. You do the math. We did have a couple of nice drives into the near by town 10 min. away (trying to kill some time.) We did have a air mattress malfunction that I fixed on my own, after having 2 very uncomfortable nights. The food the entire week was great. The weather was a little unseasonably cold but still better than it was at home. We brought plenty of dirt home and it took me 2 days to get through all the laundry and unpacking. Thanks again to the Matson's for meeting up with us. I have to rate this vacation a big fat 10. You can't beat camping when it comes to spending quality time with the fam.
