Yosemite time!

Every year we try to get to Yosemite to get some camping in. This year we went a little later expecting the water level to be a little less. We were SO wrong! It was the highest I have ever seen it. All the falls were gushing with water and there were tons of extra falls that usually aren't even there! It was beautiful...


We saw a momma bear and her cubs. There was 3 of them and they were jumping on the logs and climbing trees. So cute

John and Donna joined us for our adventure. We stayed at a nearby KOA since we couldn't get camping in the park and drove in in the mornings.






After one of our long hikes we stopped for a much needed ice cream break




Creed fell asleep so I went on a nice walk around the park with him while everyone else crammed into the bus. It was nice...






The highlight of the trip of course for Creed was throwing rocks-can't ever get enough of that!

Beautiful Donna!




Bribery with Twizzlers....

So funny, Stephanie and Michael happened to be in Yosemite one day the same day as us, so we got to see them! She looks adorable with her cute baby belly....


We hiked to the bottom of nevada falls to eat some lunch and look at the falls





Then headed over to Yosemite Falls.



the kids had a rare moment of getting along and sharing their chips. I kept all kinds of junk in our house at all times and the kids usually couldn't really care less about eating it. But I don't ever buy chips (mainly because I am seriously just not that tempted by them) and as a direct result the kids are obsessed with them. Even Creed begs for chips. So whenever we go out of town or to the zoo or disneyland we take them. Savvy started calling them zoo chips when she was 2 and it stuck. So if my kids ask you for zoo chips they are looking for doritos.........








Creed loving his big brother....





Saw a few deer but not as many as usual






It was super fun and beautiful! We are so happy John and Donna were able to meet up.
