Grotto Canyon

Since Greg was off until the girls went back to school over Christmas, we decided to head out Grotto Canyon and hike to the waterfall.  We had done this hike previously but not post-flood. While the entrance into the canyon has dramatically changed, the rest proved quite the same.
Walking to the Canyon
Uncle Brad joined us too
The giant pit that is the beginning of the canyon.  
Previously we did this hike in March and it was far more treacherous then it was that day but it was still pretty icy in some spots
The ice climbers were pretty cool to watch.  I doubt I will ever get that good at climbing but it was cool none the less

Happy New Year

Good bye 2013, Hello 2014!  Hope you all had a safe and happy new year.  2013 was quite the adventure for our family and we are hoping for a very exciting 2014.  Our new years eve was quite quiet.  We did our traditional sushi dinner followed by slurpees followed by Dispicable Me 2.  
Once the girls went to bed Greg and I watched about 7 episodes of Arrested Development and then the last 20 minutes of Global’s NYE special.  Demi Lovato performed and girls in the audience were crying.  I don’t get it.  And they weren’t like 12 year olds either – they were like teenagers.  Anyways, we watched the countdown to midnight and then went to bed.  The only difference between that night and most nights is that I stayed up 2 hours later then normal!!  hahaha so lame I have become!!
