Hello dear friends!
I believe Summer has just started for most of us and I hope its been a good beginning for you all...
We're home now from our week's vacation in Yosemite and now its time to start thinking again about house work but more importantly (hehe) what to start next for scrapping!
Our trip was great but started with car trouble. It added on around 8 hours of extra car rides to get our truck fixed but its done now and didn't damper the trip all too much.
I actually have a handful of cards to share but I'll start today with some of our trip photos...many of which you'll come across again in my layouts I am sure.
But let me start with a BIG......
Happy Birthday Cody!
My little guy just turned 2 and I can't believe it....
The man hanging out watching the kids ride and in front of our camping site....(the one of two in the park that we can actually fit our trailer and car into! LOL!)
One of the views coming into the park.....
This is actually in Wawona. The amazing part is that here in California we boast the world's largest trees and here the Mariposa Grove of giant sequoia's are found only in this number right here. They were amazing to say the least! If you'd like to see more photos here is the link to see them...some photos are from the 1800's so they are pretty cool!
We were quite a hit in the park with this bike! Its called a Madsen and can hold seat belted 4 children or 400 pounds, which means that yes, even I have taken a ride! LOL!
One of the most amazing parts is all the flooding. It increased as the week went on and the day we left the bridge and this path were completely flooded! No way we'd get our bikes through that! But the day we were able to ride through was soooooooooooo cool!
With the snowfall at 300% the waterfalls were incredible, to say the least but there were also many, many other waterfalls randomly around the park...here's one! =)
Great photos of these 2 together are pretty rare but I got a ton of them on the trip! And then pretty much none of the 3 kids together...what can ya do? LOL!
Cody up at Mirror Lake. How on earth children can stand that snow cold temperatures is beyond me! We were all pretty pooped at this point because we had ridden about 8 miles (at least my hubby, myself and Scotti). I came back a couple pounds lighter from all the riding we did!
Thanks for letting me share and I'll be back with Father's Day and birthday cards to share soon...
