Yosemite never disappoints, and even though we had a much smaller group than last year we put away our fair share of junk foods and made our way though all of the regular spots: the Nature Center at Happy Isles, the restaurants in Camp Curry, the big store at the Village, rocks (for climbing) on the Yosemite Falls trail, bus stops all over.

As the kids get older, our circle of exploration expands and the work level of this vacation goes down.  They're so easy and so willing to try new things each year.  The best thing about being a parent, hands down, is seeing things through my kids' eyes.  They're such a fun age.  Roo, especially, was a beast on the bike this year.  Both kids enjoyed the Junior Ranger program again and took advantage of the wide variety of ice cream bars available in the camp stores.

E and I made it away for just a few minutes to check out the view from the meadow and Bridalveil falls.  We didn't hike a lot this trip, but we were content to read our hearts out and basically just sit back and laugh with our two hilarious monkeys.

Man, this is a fun little family we've made.

  2. Thanks Julia! I was thinking of you with all the hiking and rock-climbing around. Have you and T spent any time in Yosemite?
