Yosemite trip

This past weekend, the fam and I headed down to Yosemite for a visit.  My goal was to see the waterfalls in full swing, and man, did we ever!  We got there on a Thursday night and set up camp in the drizzle and hoped for sunny skies the next day.  We were blessed and had a gorgeous day on Friday to hike the "Mist Trail" seeing incredibly beautiful and majestic sights along the way.  Hiking 8+ miles though carrying a 2 or 3 year old though is becoming more and more strenuous!  We all slept well that night.  The next day, we took a "Waterfall Biking Tour" of the valley and enjoyed sights of Yosemite Falls and Bridal Veil Falls.  It was a wonderful camping trip!

Do you see my little family up at the top of the falls? 

Water is amazingly powerful!

...and Yosemite Falls.

Joe is so awesome and strong to pull both kiddos and all our stuff for the day.  

We will return Yosemite!
