Travel Like Me!

I left the Beehive State and went to the Land of Enchantment via the Grand Canyon State (bonus points if you know what I'm talking about WITHOUT using Google).  I was there for five days and took seven pictures.  Yep, seven. 

And I call myself a blogger...

Here's a short list of what I did not record forever (at least it would have been forever until my phone met with a sad and tragic death, like they always do)
  • the lady on the plane who could not stop using the f word but had gorgeous hair
  • my 8 day old niece, she's the most beautiful thing ever
  • my sister's spread of land (Collette, would you call it a ranch/ farm/ homestead/ plot o' land??), whatever it is, she's living in paradise
  • my mom milking her goat, because frankly, I never thought I'd live to see that day
  • my brother and his gorgeous wife, although if I had a picture of the two of them I'd probably just feel bad about myself
  • my other brother and his beautiful wife, again I would feel bad about that picture because she's the mother of the perfect baby and her baby pooch was significantly (read, non- existent) smaller than my 3 year old pooch
  • my nephews, watching them sort of frightened me because I was certain we were going to have to call 911 ANY SECOND NOW!! (the boys have no fear, none)
  • myself giving my siblings parenting advice which was totally awesome because my kids weren't actually THERE, you know, to prove me wrong
  • aunts, uncles and cousins that I haven't seen in many years, like double digit years
  • the gorgeous mountain I sorta ran up and definitely sprinted down
Perhaps the next time I travel somewhere I should include on my list something revolutionary like
  • camera: check
  • use the camera: check
  • take pictures of people you care about: check


  1. The goat milking would have been surreal.

  2. the land of enchantment is my homeland ... very j.

    this post is better than photos. much better.

  3. What an awesome trip! I'm a little jealous that you got away for that long without kids.
    It's not fair to compare your post-baby#4 belly to your sister-in-law's post-baby#1 (or #2?) belly. You and I both know that things just don't snap back after 4 babies...and especially not after twins! You deserve a badge of honor for that. =)
    Anyway, I knew which states you were talking about, so do I get a cookie?


I wanna hear what you have to say, so write. Pretty please.
