Day 2 in Yosemite

So these blog posts are not in order, but here are a few pictures of our 2nd day in Yosemite Natl Park. We have had the pleasure as a family of enjoying several of our country's largest national parks and I think Yosemite ranks as 1. It is now my Dad's favorite place and that says a lot. It is incredibly beautiful and there is so much for a family to do together.
We all started on a 0.8 mile hike to Vermal (or Vernal ?) falls. It was a really steep hike and we got this far. The kids whined a little but where so excited when we got to the bridge for this view.

Later we found a "beach" area that the kids could swim in. The water was FREEZING!!!!!!!
As evidenced by their faces below. :)

During the drive out on both days, we saw a black bear. They are more brown in color up here, but still considered a black bear.

Hi Mel...You don't really know me, but you know my sister well, Carly :)! I was just checking out your blog because Car had told me about your family's adventure to CA. It was fun to read over your trip. It looks like we covered much of the same territory. Sidney saw your pics from the Grand Canyon from across the room and she was pretty excited. Hope you all are settling into what will be your new normal and that God will shower His blessings along the way! ~Amy
