Yosemite

Our family summer vacation was spent at Yosemite. We all had a fun, nature filled vacation. We stayed at housekeeping camp.... which ended up working out great for us. We had a little cabin next to the river, cooked all of our meals, and relaxed by the fire each night. Our days were spent exploring, hiking, and biking. We have never seen so many waterfalls! Much to our dismay, we did not encounter any black bears. We did however, see squirrels, deer, and all kinds of birds. It was fun to spend time with each other free of any distractions. The kids are already talking about next time... so I am sure we will be back.The top of Mirror Lake... the kids hiked a total of four miles on this particular hike. They were such troopers!A Bear Grylls worthy shelter discovered by Tatum and Davis.Tatum was fearless, always trying to talk Ryan or I into getting a closer look at the water.
Yosemite Falls.Splashing in the Merced River.
Davis relaxing at our campsite. All day long he kept asking if we could please go back to the campsite. Definitely his favorite part of the trip. The beach by our campsite. Lyric is sampling yet another rock, while I get an attack hug from Davis.

Ryan and the girls getting a close-up of Bridal Veil Falls.The kids had so much fun rock hopping to cross streams.
Miss adventure, taking a two second rest.
