Family Fun!

We decided to take a family trip to the grand canyon.  We wanted to do a little camping, hiking, and spend some time with my parents.  Look at my happy little camper!

I was so surprised one day when Maddie just plopped down on this mattress and said "night night" and then didn't move.... we must have just worn her out!   what a doll, she got her best nap on the whole trip outside in our campground :)

Maddie loves her daddy and was spoiled the whole trip getting to spend every second with him!  where ever daddy went Maddie was sure to follow.  
Shawn and my dad went on a hike while we were there.  They did a hike that is considered one of 10 of the most dangerous hikes in America... they even started hiking at 2:00 in the morning to beat the heat of the hike coming back up the grand canyon! Wow! 

Maddie already has a shoe fettish!  she was having a ball dancing and jumping around in these cute boots.... 


For those of you who don't know, i kinda have a thing for the claw... i go in wal-mart and if i have a quarter or ten handy you better believe it is all going to the claw.  So when i saw this claw machine at New York New York in vegas i had to try it.... so sad i lost (like most of the time), but it was sure a thrill :)
