Luke likes my toys

Luke with tripod. After this picture I turned around for a few minutes and when I came back the tripod was in 5 pieces.
Luke with remote. He likes remotes almost as much as he likes cell phones.

Yosemite Day 5: Mariposa Grove

This is where Luke sat for meals.
Mariposa Grove is a hike near the Wawona campground with a lot of really big trees, including the Grizzly Giant... The kids on a fence.
After all that walking we decided to cool off in the freezing cold river near our campsite...

Yosemite Day 3: Glacier Point

Here's the whole group. John, Rob, Craig, Dave, Missy, Aiden, Joy, Dawson, Levi, Candice, Alec, Brian, Megan, Natalie, and Luke. Nick and Chad are difficult to see -- they're standing at the top of Nevada Falls in the distance.
This would be a nice view even without the big landmarks... add half dome and all the waterfalls and it's just unbelievable.
The guys...
The gals...

Packing for Yosemite

Luke helped us pack for the trip. We found out that bringing a baby along adds about 5x to the packing list.
The 4Runner was stuffed full! So full that we had to make a last minute run to Target for a roof rack luggage carrier.
Luckily the 4 couples split up the food duties so we only have to bring food for one day.
