If you ever have a chance, you should visit the Grand Canyon. I recommend you stay at least a few days. The bus tour was too quick. I would have loved to go hike or take a mule tour. The helicopter ride would have been breathtaking. We plan on going back and doing more stuff. It was just amazing. I can not even explain the feeling you get while you are standing there and just looking…with your mouth open. WOW was used a lot from us. I hope you all get to go one day. I loved the whole experience.



Grand Canyon Railway – The Official Site

One of the highlights of my trip was the train ride to the Grand Canyon. The train only went about 40 mph, so we got to enjoy the view amd got to walk around a lot. I paid extra to be in the luxury car because my kids needed the leg room. We would have a problem in the regular seats due to their heights. So, I got to enjoy desserts, fruits, cheeses, crackers, and a champagne toast. The kids had apple cider. We also had the benefit of going out to the back of the train and enjoying the view. We met a lot of very interesting people out there. They were visiting from all over the world. We had Larry, who sang for us. He is a great singer and has sooo much personality. He was nice enough to take a photo with me. I also got to meet the conductor. He was also a very nice person. The whole crew was amazing and friendly. They made the ride extra special. On the trip home, we even had a staged train robbery. Sooo much fun. I would highly recommend this trip. It is a great family vacation. It is all planned out. All you have to do is have your money ready or your signature on the dotted line. Hope you are all having a great day. I will post Grand Canyon photos next. Until then, be good. Smile. Visit one another.

Isn’t it interesting that people feel best about themselves right before they go on vacation? They’ve cleared up all of their to-do piles, closed up transactions, renewed old promises with themselves. My most basic suggestion is that people should do that more than just once a year.
