2012 Family Travel Memories

This post comes somewhat late because life has been so-o-o hectic for me recently, but my 2012 was too beautiful not to share my travel adventures. Every day, I am so grateful for God's blessings he has bestowed upon us. Exactly one year ago today we traveled to the West Coast for over a month and spent additional two weeks in Kauai, Hawaii. So, here's a recap of our 2012 family adventure vacations.


Our first day of vacation started in Las Vegas. We went to see Red Rock Canyon, Valley of Fire State Park, Hoover Dam and Lake Mead. From the beautiful lights at night, and the fountains in color with music of Bellagio Hotel amazes me. We went up to the top of Stratosphere Tower via one of the fastest elevators in the world. My knees were shaking watching people on the Insanity Ride and X Scream Ride. And oh geez, even somebody will pay me to ride on it I am pretty sure this is a ride I will never ever go on.

In Arizona, we visited both the Upper and Lower Antelope Canyon, Horseshoe Bend, Wupatki National Monument and Sunset Crater Volcano National Monument. I wished we had enough time to go to Sedona.
