Day 10

Our last leg of the trip. We explored a bit of San Francisco today. Went through the Japanese Tea Garden. Olivia saw this umbrella and just had to have it. She carried it around the gardens and it was well worth the price we paid just to watch people's expressions at the site of an almost 3 year old shading herself from the sun!
We went to say good-bye to the Golden Gate Bridge since we didn't drive over it this trip and this was the site we saw....Just call this the Fog Blog!
We fly home in the morning but check back as I'll post some recaps and funny things that happened on the road.

The Biggest Tree in the Whole World!

There it is. The General Sherman in Sequoia National Park. I didn't bring my extra wide angle lens on this trip and I was kicking myself because this monstrosity could not be photographed from top to bottom without it! Here we are just in front of the base of it.

Day 9

Happy 4th of July from Pier 39 in San Francisco! Hope you all had a great day!

Day 6, 7 & 8

3 days in Yosemite...
I sat by this river and felt such a feeling of peace and serenity. Soaking up all that God has put on this earth to help us through life. To rejuvenate and refresh the spirit. We are so lucky to be here.

And now back to our regularly scheduled programming...

Day 5

We took it easy this morning and ventured out to the Children's Discovery Museum in San Jose for some exploration with Olivia. She's been a trooper riding in the car for hours at a time so she really enjoyed herself! This afternoon we visited with Steve's family in Fremont for Aunt Jean's 80th Birthday! A special THANKS to John & Tien for all the awesome food and family fun!
We're off to Yosemite tomorrow so I probably won't be able to post until we get to San Francisco on Tuesday. I can't image I will have wireless access in my tent cabin in the park.

Enjoy a few shots of some friends we've made along the way...

Day 4

Wowie Wow Wow WOW!! That's what I have to say about the dramatic coastline from the quaint little town of Carmel down to Big Sur and along the "17 mile drive" near Monterey and Carmel.
