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.

You could always tell him that the cannons aren't there anymore but the big hole they left in the ground is. I went to the Grand Canyon when I was 12, and mostly I remember my mom yelling at my dad for standing too close to the edge.ReplyDelete
My spring break was ages ago, so it's a regular week for me. You guys have fun, though!ReplyDelete
I'm not doing anything bc I'm sick--ugh, it's just a cold, but all I want to do is sleep. :P
Our spring break was a few weeks ago as well. We didn't do anything. We're boring. :) I hope you have fun!!ReplyDelete
Never been, but always wanted to go. Have a fun, fun time!ReplyDelete
I'm filling dozens and dozens of plastic eggs this weekend. Yipee.
Ha! I think you should go with what Jessie said. ;)ReplyDelete
I loved Jessie's answer to your problem. We went to Grand Canyon 6 years ago on New Years Eve and we were so cold.ReplyDelete
Unfortunately no spring break plans, stupid kids sports.
