This was probably the hardest day for me because of my pregnancy + the heat + needing to pee every five minutes + being scared of going to the bathroom in the bushes because I was afraid of snakes biting me in the butt + I just wanted ice cream the entire day (and that never happens b/c I don’t like ice cream that much) + I hit my wall emotionally and just wanted to fall asleep somewhere. SO DRAMATIC! (Pregnancy was a real pain in the butt for me in the Grand Canyon…and I also hated everyone coming up to me and asking me about the baby for some reason…normally I am fine with it, but I did not want anyone to talk to me or look at me or inform me that I looked like I was going to pop-yeah I was just a delightful woman to be around that day).
Thankfully I married an angel of a man who promised to take care of me and always love me in sickness and in health (and in ridiculous behaviors like I was exhibiting) so by the end of the day (after I had thrown my holy temper tantrum) I actually had a wonderful day with Ty and I am thankful that we got to see and experience the glorious wonders of the Grand Canyon. It really is so gorgeous there, and like I have stated in previous posts, I really want to bring my son back here and maybe it would be better when I’m NOT pregnant so I can walk without needing to pee every other minute. Also, maybe go there when the weather is not 2,000,000 degrees outside.
Here are a few of my favorite photos from our day trip to the Grand Canyon. It was a 2-3 hour drive from our Airbnb so my husband deserves all the praise hand emojis for driving us to and from the Grand Canyon ESP after a long day with his moody and pregnant wife.
Anyway, if you have learned anything from reading my posts it is this: please love and appreciate your spouses (or your partners) who are walking with you through life (ESP through pregnancy or any new chapters which change/alter your hormones). Let them know you love them and appreciate them!
