Road Trip to Tropic

Where you ask? Tropic - home of Dave's childhood - on the outskirts of Bryce Canyon. We went down to visit with his grandma and aunt marjorie and to hang out with his family in the place where they grew up. I was so excited to see it because I have heard about Tropic since we were dating, but I'd never heard of it until then. So here we go! Here is Bryce on the trip down. He was so happy and smiley the entire trip.

Climbing the T hill. Dave used to spend hours on this hill with his sisters and friends playing and building forts.
The VERY TINY town of Tropic from on top of the T hill. It is a tiny place, but so peaceful and quiet, that I had a really great time here.
Bryce and Aunt Pearl hanging out on Grandma Mecham's front lawn.
Bryce and Dave in the very spot where he and his dad had their picture taken about 30 years ago in front of great grandma's fence.
The beginning of the famous Mecham family hike to Mossy Cave.
Aunt Marjorie, Grandma Linda, Uncle Cameron, Aunt Coni, Aunt Pearl and Katers.

Bryce, finally, in Bryce Canyon.

A tunnel on the Sunset hike. We had such a fun trip and loved hanging out with everyone, and we can't wait to do it again!

It looks like you guys had a great time. I think your blog gets cuter and cuter everytime I see it. You are going to have to teach me how to do a header. BTW I think you need to have pictures of you on your blog too.
