We took an amazing vacation to Yosemite National Park in California. What a breathtaking place! Truly one of God's masterpieces! It was a long time in the car (33 hours approximately) but well worth it! The kids were absolutely amazing during the long hours of driving. Couldn't have asked for better!

|Favorite part of the trip, a hike up to Vernal Fall. |
One of the most beautiful places I have seen in my life!

|The whole crew (minus Papa and Grandpa Bob) at the top of Vernal Fall.|
The older kids hiked the whole way themselves! Such troopers, it was not easy!
It was a 3 mile round trip, with a 1000 foot ascent including 700 granite steps.

|At Sentinel Beach in Yosemite Valley|
|FREEZING COLD WATER! Don't let the smile fool you,|
my feet were on fire, COLD fire!
|It's not a trip to the beach unless someone eats sand!|
|Kids building trail markers near the base of Yosemite Falls|
|The tallest trail marker. This man is trying to add another pebble to it.|
