Grand Canyon, Vegas Wedding

We’re in Las Vegas for the wedding of Matt’s brother Grant and his fiancee Trudie. Because three successive time changes (EST to Central, Central to Mountain, and Mountain to Pacific) worked in our favor, we were able to visit the Grand Canyon on our way. Our penultimate destination is Victoria, BC, where we will visit some more Anglican churches and share presentations about our mission.

The Canyon was well worth the short trip out of our way to see it.

The wind was so strong, Naomi was almost blown over the edge.

After the Grand Canyon, we proceeded to Las Vegas for my brother’s wedding. Vegas isn’t where I would want any of my kids to get married. But Grant is not one of my kids, and it was worth spending a night in this ridiculous city to be there for him and Trudie. It was also nice for our kids to spend one last sweet time (in the hotel room, not in the casino!) with their paternal grandparents.

    I was just in Vegas for a conference – I have no desire to return. I can’t imagine what I’d do with my time if the conference hadn’t take up most of the day. I do regret that my schedule didn’t allow for a tour of the Grand Canyon.
