Yosemite and the Nature Nerds

Were back from a fabulous family vacation! We all had a blast! We did so much in just three days and enjoyed each other the whole time. We did it all! We enjoyed the High Sierra, Granite cliffs, Sequoia Groves and the Valley. We hiked over 12 miles (kids too!)Our backs hurt a bit, but it was well worth it. We took it all in, the views, sounds and smells of Yosemite. We enjoyed family time in our cabin with hot chocolate, pillow fights,boardgames,foosball and relaxing in the hot tub. We read books and learned about the history of Yosemite etc. We took a steam train ride through the woods. The weather was beautiful and the tree's were so colorful this time of year. The last night we were there it rained so we all snuggled up and watched The Great Outdoors. (I thought that movie would be fun with the scary bear story and all) Guess not! I scared the kids. Other than that and Landen locking all of us out of the cabin except Finley screaming inside, it was a perfect trip. The kids were such troopers in the car and on the long hikes. If Austin didn't have his All Star game tomorrow night we would of begged Daddy to stay one more night. We plan to make this a family tradition from now on. If you haven't taken a family trip to Yosemite I highly recommend it. My camera was acting up but you know me, I still managed to take 100's of pictures. There a bit blurry....enjoy! (there's A LOT)
I have more too..I'll post in a slide show later.

How fun!!!!
See your traveling dream is happening, now just keep planning these last minute trips every weekend and then your husband will have to give in! You can argue that you spend more time on the road and you NEED the RV haha.
Love the pics.
Take care
