Martin was super excited and the girls in turn were excited.
We hiked the 3 mile rim walk and learned about the rocks that make up the Grand Canyon. Once we finished the walk Doug and I were completely wiped out from pushing two strollers and a baby in the wrap we took the bus back to the main visitors center. I'm hopping one day to leave the kids for 6 days and do the Colorado River rafting trip though the canyon.

|Zoey fell alseep on the bus ride back to the car after 3 miles of walking. Must be turf sitting in a stroller while mom pushes her around the rim while carrying her little brother in a wrap.|

Is a wild life park near Williams AZ. Its a small park but is an on going project and to be honest when you first enter its like Jurassic Park and a lot of fun. We drove around the park seeing the different animals and than arrived at the fort where we saw baby club bears, foxes, porcupines, beavers and so much more. We also learned that buffalo are no longer pure they are all mixed with cattle to bring back the buffalo. So when you are eating "Buffalo Meat" its really a mix of buffalo and Cattle.

On the way home we took the long way though Oak Creek Canyon to look at the leaves change. We saw tons of reds and yellows in the higher elevation but the lower we got the more green the trees became. I love Oak Creek and if it wasn't so expensive I would live there in a minute. This trip remind me how much I love the outdoors and hiking and how much I miss seeing the trees change. However I don't miss 22 degree weather.
