Yosemite! The perfect place to camp!



Yosemite in May is spectacular!!  I wanted to share some of my pictures!

We drove the Mazda5 packed to the gills! Traveling with a two year old means we took a LOT more than last years camping trip!











Diane, you asked if I meant camping as in ....... sleeping bag.... tent.... yup!! We do cheat a little and use air mattresses.  Let me tell you what!! I was so thankful to DH for the new sleeping bag he bought me for Mother's Day!!  I was toasty warm!! It was FREEZING at night!!













Camping with a toddler also means you have to ignore the dirt......... a LOT of dirt!

I want y'all to know Selena and Dan put up that HUGE 10 man tent, inflated the air mattresses, put suitcases in, set up the sleeping bags, filled the bear locker with the food ALL BEFORE I put that STUPID little TINY pink tent together for Alice. Although it is adorable and she had a great time in it, it was a pain in the arse to put together!!

    Alice looks so hardcore with her walking sticks, boots and scarf. She looks like she belongs there.

  4. Beautiful scenery . Love the picture of Alice with her walking sticks - it is so cute.
    Hey I dont blame you taking an air mattress I used to too. Yous are in the mountains so expect dirt - it all washes off in the end - clothes and kids LOL

  5. How gorgeous! I love the photos, Like something out of the magazine. Do they get any cuter than Alice! Oh and LoL I too use and inflated mattress. Think we need a better one though ours don't hold air well. When I begin to feel my back in the middle of the night I know the mattress is going flat. Sounds like you ate a lot of sand- wiches on you're hiking and camping. LOL
