More from the GCGC fun

After spending a few hours at the Attic, we went to the tattoo parlor so Sharon could get her little man Josh's baby feet on her upper back. I am not one for needles so i was just cringing with the sound alone BUT i did watch for about 3 seconds and then went back to my stitching. LOL Watching for 3 seconds was an accomplishment for me so that was kinda funny. Sharon's tattoo turned out really awesome and it was probably the first time they have had 4 women sitting around waiting for someone and stitching. LOL After that we went out for some Mexican food at a local place and my daughters came out to hang for a little while while shooting us with their nerf guns. They are such dorks, how fun. LOL

Friday we headed to a friends cabin up north in Happy Jack AZ (just south of Flagstaff). I knew the girls would not be disappointed with the accomodations there. ;) I think we were a little overthinking the alcohol we brought, but hey, what if we got snowed in, right???? LOL We had our own little grab bag exchange of stithcing goodies, etc and floss ring tag "class" if you want to call it that after a couple drinks. LOL And also showed the fine art of coffee dying/baking fabric (it's easier than i think they thought it was). LOL

We ventured off to the Grand Canyon on Saturday after we FINALLY got the hot water working. LOL Frigid cold showers, BRRRRRRRRRRR!!! LOL Now, i have been to the GC a few times in my time here in AZ but it seems to be different every time. The only way to describe it is "breathtaking". There was still snow on the ground and very very very cold. I froze my butt off up there! I am not used to cold weather and OMG it was freezing, the girls were laughing at me. LOL My sister and Aunt Cathy were at the cabin while we were at the GC and my sis made a big pot of Turkey Chili for us and death by chocolate cake. yummy!!!

So here are some more pics from our GCGC get together. One of the pics that Chris took (i stole from her blog) of Ruth, Sharon, Michele and I sitting on the fireplace and it looks like i was crying/laughing. Well, i was. When i stretched my legs across Michele for the pic just having fun my toes cramped up on me and we all were laughing really hard. LOL it was painful but still funny. LOL
