So Ned and I cannot describe the EXTREME LOVE we have for Yosemite National Park. We LOVE IT! It brings us SO much happiness and Joy! We were so sad to leave and honestly felt a bit depressed being back home the week after and having to return to work and mundane routine of life...it was awesome... I will post and describe more later.

Ps. Ned also got me a new camera for an early b-day present, Nikon SLR D5000. I have NO IDEA what I am doing and havent even read the users guide, so dont expect anything cool yet. But it was fun to have 3 camera's up there, and why we have a millions pictures!

This is when Sarah and I had to move our ENTIRE CAMP to another site when there was an oversight on what we thought we had. We wanted to look as pathetic as possible, so we could get sympathy from the half dome hikers when they came home, because it was NOT easy moving the camp and having ALL the kids....

The whole family...

My little wild child (I like her crazy face in this pic)

The Todd Fam.

Me and Bella

Our little fam (if your wondering where Asher was) my WONDERFUL mother-in-law kept him since he would be at a horrible stage with the crawling, going down the river, and all other activites. We were so grateful (Even though I know she wont read this) for how willing she is to always help with our kids whenever we need it, and he had a great time with some extra bonding time with him Grammy and Grandpa too.

Uncle Wes with the kids and the fake fire...

Good ole John (Muir that is)..

April and Wes PROM PIC

The little kids, LOVED these little ducklings that kept coming through the creek right by our camp...


  1. Great pics and great memories, except for the moving the camp thing.

  2. I was feeling a little depressed leaving vacation also. Boo hoo!!

  3. You wanna know depressing? I don't think I've been to Yosemite in about 10yrs!! :( It's so bad that i recorded a program on the Travel Channel about Yosemite so that i could watch it whenever. Great memories there and i can't wait to get stationed out west so i can take Sarah and Kyland there too!

    And on another note...that's a GREAT camera!!! One of the many i've been checking out! You know Ned...you always were my favorite cousin. lol ;)

    Hope things are great for you guys!

  4. I can't begin to say how jealous I am. The pictures are beautiful and it looks like you guys had a great time. Although I'm happy for you...it makes me a little depressed. It's been way too long since I've been there. Nyah was only 1-year-old.

    Glad to see you guys had a good time. We all need to go up together again. I'm hoping we'll all be able to go next year.

  5. So fun!!! I love the outside adventures you guys take.!
