OOO, I think I might go visit that Qwnbee site. She sounds cool and totally awesome. Not old or anything.

Amber said...

Lol, you're welcome. She's pretty much ADORABLE!

DeNae said...

How is it possible you haven't ever seen the Grand Canyon or been stung by a bee?? Too bad you didn't grow up with my kids; Vanessa actually talked Cori into touching an inert bee because "it looks like it's sleeping". And next fall you have to take your kids to the Polar Express train ride through the Grand Canyon!

Amber said...

Holy crap! They do one through the Grand Canyon??? That would be so dang cool! I'm trying to talk Tavis into letting us do the one the Heber Creeper does through Provo canyon. Ya, never been stung. Tavis thinks I need to let one sting me to see if I'm allergic. Sounds like SUCH a good idea! Have you done the Grand Cyn thing?

Ryan and Jacki Andrew said...

I stole this from my aunts blog. I can't take credit for it either.

DeNae said...

No, I've never done the GC Polar Express dealio, but I have students who have. Google it; I think they even have hotel packages to go along with the train ride.

As for Tavis' ideas about bee stings, may I delicately suggest he not be the one to make the decision should we ever need to, say, pull the plug on your life support? "Hey, give it a tug. Let's see if she's alergic to not breathing and stuff..."
