Girls weekend! Kristen and Kenzi came out for a Quick girls weekend at Newport Beach. Got a hotel for the night went and shopped at the beach with bikes. It was a great weekend. Then Kenzie stayed and went to the aquarium with friends. Love anytime I get to be with my best friend Kristen! I love that our girls hang out too!
Drew's 4th grade class Took a field trip to Yosemite. So Travis, me, Luke, and Drew all went up for it. We left the girls home to work on finals for high school, and Cameron at a friends. We had such a fun time writing bikes, hiking, and Travis and I even got to hike Half Dome!
We ride bikes with the Riemer Family around the valley floor of Yosemite!
While We were up there we got drawn to hike Half Dome. Liz and Jeremy drove up that day, to hike it with us the next morning. 19 miles later, and 48,000 steps later we conquered Half Dome.
This at the base of the Done. All those little specs behind me are people climbing the cables!
It was straight up and pretty stressful. Only one way up and down so traffic jams would happen and you would have to just stand gripping the cables till it cleared up. It was prett sketchy, but a pretty awesome accomplishment.
The bend is so steep you can't even see the side of the Done that you have to climb and go down.
We ate a huge pizza that night, showered and slept so good that night! We left at 5:30am and we're back at our camp at 5:15pm👍
New York City, where have you been all my life. Travis and I took the train after church from Jen is in Connecticut into Grand Central Station in New York City. We would be there for 3 1/2 days to explore. We saw so much and did so much, it was such a great time. We would leave our hotel room about 9 AM and not be back till midnight each day!
