Cam and Gram....AND MOMMY and Aunt Terri

     It was hard to believe that the little man would not be here in a couple days.  The 33 days we hung out was quite an adventure in many ways!  We got to know each other and had a ton of fun in the process!
   
Mommy's here....

Nicole and Cam's Aunt Terri arrived early evening on a Monday after a 28+ hour drive across the country.  To say that mom and son were happy to see each other would be a gigantic understatement!      After considerable excitement, we managed to sleep.  We left early the following morning headed for the Grand Canyon.  Our plan to see the sunset there was compromised by car issues, so we spent the night in a hotel got back up at 3:30 AM to catch the sunrise.

How precious is this?!

gazing at a remarkable sight!

We'll be soon...we're in Arizona!!!


































We all agreed it was worth it!  We all had a marvelous time.  Even though it was my 3rd visit to this spectacular vista, my heart nearly skipped a beat at first glance.  The sun over the canyon at first was a bit of a hindrance to good photography because of the shadows and glare.  As the morning progressed, the glow on the deep gorges and craggy walls lit the view considerably!
   



























































     The following morning after breakfast we had a wonderful time hiking up to the Elena Gallegos picnic area in the Sandia Mountains and hanging out at the pool at the apartment.   Afterwards Nicole, Terri and Cameron packed up and off they went to drive back home to Maryland!
It was truly a blessing having my grandson with me.  I hope that he remembers as fondly as I do the time we spent together.  
Mommy and kid!
