You will be happy to know that we had it out of the Grand Canyon alive. My absence in the blogging world does not signify my demise. We made it home from our adventure safe and sound. I have a lot to catch up on but first, in the light of thanksgiving, I am thankful for my mom. There are many reasons and I won't go into a long list. But, one reason is her ability to make a cake. My birthday cake! After I turned 18 I stopped receiving presents for my birthday. The only thing I get is a cake. A fancy cake of my choosing. This year I picked a chocolate cookie dough cake I saw on Pinterest ( I never have the same cake twice). My mother made it for me. It took her hours and according to her, after step 215, it was finished. She swore to never make this cake again. But I tell you what sir, it was delicious!

We went to the Grand Canyon, stayed with friends in the sun valley Indian school and crossed off a lot of miles. We made it to Tennessee in time to get Spencer settled at school. And tomorrow we head out again on our trip home. I'm getting tired of driving but I'm having so much fun.

We went yardsaleing this morning. Oh, and what good things we found. $8:50 later and I'm am the owner of a cheese shaker, a large bowl, a garden fairy on a stick, the movie August Rush, a horse bean baby, a hedgehog bean baby, and a puzzle. Look how good we all did. The most interesting find was a set of kempul Indonesian gongs.
We leave Wyoming tomorrow for our return trip. Our stay here wasn't long enough but if we don't leave we can never come back. We'll be driving through Colorado and the plan is to see the grand canyon, arches park, and four corners. So much to see, so little time.

Our second night here in lovely Wyoming we did the cowboy thing and went to the rodeo.
We got up at the crack of dawn, or before, I wasn't awake enough to tell. But we were dressed and leaving the house by six. We arrived at the park a bit after eight. The day was full of sight seeing and fun. I was able to cross some animals of my mental animal to see list. Two of which were pelicans, and a wolf. Both of these were extremely exciting because I have never seen either of these in the wild before.
