To the Cannons!
My son's been asking me all week: "Mom, is today the day we get to see the cannons?" You see, we're going to the Grand Canyon and since my son has no reference for the word 'canyon' he's turned it into the only thing he knows that sounds like the word: cannon. He even told my daughter, "There's going to be big fireworks." Am I a little worried that when we pull up to the big hole in the earth today that he is going to melt into fits of extreme disappointment? Uh.....yes, yes I am. Oh well, at least by the end of the day he will have a reference for the word 'canyon.' I've lived in California my whole life and have never been to the Grand Canyon, so I think I'll have a new reference for the word as well.
