More vacation pictures


Aunt Toni and Uncle Joel took us hiking while in the Phoenix area. This is a view of Phoenix but not all of it.  


I'm not sure what the name is for when Indians from history draw on stone . . .  .  But that's what that is. lol


Aunt Toni and Uncle Joel also took us to this neat place called "Organ Stop Pizza"  This organ controls a billion other instruments in the restaurant and even disappears into the floor!

Grand Canyon
January 2015



Naomi and I were able to visit the Grand Canyon for a bit between visits with Mum's side of the family.  You can just sit and watch for forever and not get tired of it! It is so Grand!


Looking down into the canyon. The weather was very pretty while we were there. This snow hadn't had a chance to melt yet.




Oh Lord, my God
When I in awesome wonder
Consider all the works
Thy hands have made


I see the stars
I hear the rolling thunder
Thy power throughout
The universe displayed


Then sings my soul
My Saviour, God, to Thee
How great thou Art
How great thou Art!
