Naming the Struggle
I’ve been struggling for months. Even worse, it has taken me until very recently to put a name to the struggle. About two weeks ago I figured it out and … Continue reading Naming the Struggle
Travel With Toddlers
I knew that this trip to California would be the most challenging yet with our 20-month old twin toddlers, so I scoured the Internet for ideas of how to entertain … Continue reading Travel With Toddlers
Exploring Red Bluff
It’s amazing how you can take your hometown for granted, how you can completely miss the beauty of where you live simply because you see it all the time. When … Continue reading Exploring Red Bluff

Tori’s Bucket List: See the Grand Canyon
We had been planning for over a year to visit the Grand Canyon during our trip to Arizona, so this became an easy addition to Tori’s Bucket List. What made it even more special was that it was Brennan’s first time to see it as well.
If you’ve never been there, it’s truly a must. You can stand there looking for hours on end without becoming bored. Amazing that so many people come to see this gigantic hole in the ground!
This was the first stop for our Arizona experience. We drove from Southern California that morning and made it just in time for sunset!
We spent the night there and went back to the Canyon Rim the next morning, and we got some great family photos.
I am so thankful that we got to experience this with Tori. We don’t know how well she can see, but that won’t stop us from showing her whatever we can while she is with us. ❤
Thanks to the Miks family for making this possible! ❤️
