Last week, my family came to visit me here in Arizona. There were some issues with flights, so my dad was the only one to arrive on schedule. He and I went up to the Grand Canyon and Sedona last weekend. Both hikes were absolutely beautiful! It’s much easier to appreciate the beauty of the desert when a person is not stuck in the middle of the city. Once the rest of the family got to Arizona, we celebrated my mom’s birthday, and she cut my hair. This past weekend, we drove up to Lake Havasu City. There, we went for a hike in a canyon, along with doing some minor rock climbing. We also rented a jet ski to explore the lake more. It was so nice to have everyone here with me!! Thank you for coming to visit me at school!
