My nephew Jimmy was in a mood all weekend. I asked him to show me his 'scowl' and he misinterpreted and tried to show me is 'scar' on the top of his head. When I said, 'no, your scowl' he gave me this confused look on the right and I said 'never mind, got it.' Confused look/scowl = same difference ;)
Dave came back tonight and said he 'rocked it.' The Grand Canyon was tough but apparently Dave was tougher ;) My parents, my brother in law Wayne, my aunt, her daughter and her daughter's friend went down a day before and hiked from the North to the South rim. Dave, his brother Seth and my nephew Nate met up with them there and my parents and Wayne hiked the 20 miles back to the North rim (yes, you read that right, my parents and Wayne hiked rim to rim, to rim in two days.... they're totally nuts). Dave and his brother had a ball hiking back, it took them 13 hours, lots of water/Gatorade and tons of my dad's corny jokes to keep them going. The first day of the hike my mom, Wayne and cousin Katie got pretty dehydrated. It was 99 degrees at the bottom of the canyon - ugh. Wayne got super nauseous at the end of the first day and was throwing up at the end of the second - can you blame the guy? 44 miles in two days would take it out of you! My parents however, both in their 60s, just kept chugging away and did great. In Dave's words: "they're machines!" Unfortunately Dave didn't take a camera so he didn't come back with any pictures but he said he 'definitely had an adventure this weekend, every minute of it.' Welcome back my sweet!
