Yosemite!

We went to Yosemite National Park this weekend. It was AMAZING. Seriously. I have no idea how I can live approximately 3 hours from such a place for twenty somethin' years and never know this even existed. Now that I am a grown up (shut up- I AM!) and live 2 hours away, we are planning on going often. Why wouldn't we?? Wanna see pictures??

The cabin we stayed in. SO small. This is what I get for being a cheap butt and saving $15 a night. Next time, I think I'll splurge.



The 18 people we went with (except me and Kendall, since I was taking the pic and she was on the back of my bike. We biked around Yosemite about 10 miles. It was awesome!


My family on a bridge at Yosemite. Try not to look too hard; we may use it as our Christmas Card.


Just a quick pic I took while riding my bike. Yep, RIDING. I didn't even stop to take it-that's talent.


A picture I took of me WHILE on my bike. I told you I was talented.


The kiddos. I would love to tell you what exactly they are in front of, but I have no idea. My poor husband had to hear me the whole time going, "Is that Half Dome? What about that, is that half dome? How 'bout now??


The beauty that is Yosemite.


We had such a wonderful time. We are already planning our next trip in the next few months. I think I have a new favorite place to be!!

How many pictures did you actually take? It looks like you had lots of fun. I love Yosemite it is a beautiful place. It kind of sucks in the summer when all the people show up.

It looks like you all had a great time! I definitely laughed at the picture of you on the bike... ;)

Thanks for stopping by my blog, and for praying for my little cousin Claire...I really appreciate it.

Looks like your family had a blast at Yosemite (I prefer saying it like the old cartoon character Yosemite Sam...but my mother in law insists on calling it Yos-Might). I, too, live just a few hours from that place, but have never been there...and it looks like such fun! We may just have to take a little trip up there this coming spring...

Great pics!

we haven't been since the girls were born. You're pix remind me that we're about due to go. (next year). I can even brag that I've made it to half dome...once.

The kids are in front of El Capitain (I think).

Great pix..but I think you know that. ;-)
