Today started our pretty good. We got to Bryce canyon( we ran into a friend from Rochester). Matt and I decided to take the shuttle to Bryce point and do a nice little hike (1.3 miles) to inspiration point with the kiddos. Well…..Kiersten said it would be so nice to go down in the canyon. Of course daddy agreed with his princess. The thing is, if you hike DOWN into the canyon you have to hike UP to get out of the canyon. Trying to be a trooper , I followed my husband and our children of the corn( that is their new name because I think they are trying to kill me🤔) We did a couple of trails and I said ,”can we find the easiest trail up?” Matt and Kiersten said “yes”. I swear I saw them look at each other and snicker. What the heck did I ever do to those two? Oh yeah, before I forget…..THERE IS NO EASY WAY UP FROM THE CANYON!!! Anyways, almost to the top and we have lightening bolts and hail. The children of the corn ran up to the top to safety and Matt waited for me.(I guess he realizes that the kids will eventually move out and he will be stuck with me). So, we finally made it out of the canyon and we were waiting with a hundred othere people for a shuttle to take us to our vehicles. The bus gets there, we try to huddle close so we can all get on together. I stood behind the kids to make sure they got on. The bus driver started closing the door as I was pushing Kiersy in and my hand got stuck AND he started driving away. A guy next to me grabbed my hand out as I looked up to see my family drive away. I grabbed the next bus 10 freezing cold minutes later and when I was delivered to my stop I was greeted and being videotaped by my family . All I have to say to my family is…sleep with one eye open😘 Next stop…Zion national park.
