For Thanksgiving, we headed up to Yosemite in an RV for 5 days with a bunch of friends. It was such a great time! Unlike So Cal weather, it was actually cold and we were able to introduce our kids to "coats, gloves & hats." :) :) It actually felt like fall instead of a mild summery day....yeah for me!

Anyhow, we drove up half of the way on Monday night; spent the night in a Walmart parking lot and then headed up to Yosemite Tues-Sat. The kids had so much fun playing outside, getting dirty, going on bike having their daddy with them for several days in a row.

I think there were about 8 families total, each with lots of kids. Most of these families do this trip together every year and two years ago we joined them for the first time. You can click HERE to see pics of that trip.....and how small my kiddos were (sniff, sniff...). Our RV this year was bigger and much better than the last trip!

"We" (aka...the men) created this huge room out of about 6 easy-ups attached together and then an enormous tarp was thrown over the whole thing. There's a little door, several heaters, lights and lots of picnic tables. It's so warm under this tarp that no jackets are needed, even late at night. That's where everyone gathers in the evening, playing games and hanging out. A fire is going on right outside the tent for all the smores you want to eat.

On Thanksgiving day, we had lots of yummy turkey and everyone brought sides and desserts to share. And our special friends, Nate & Becky, were the biggest troopers as they decided to tent camp instead of RV camp. :) Yosemite is too beautiful for words and pictures don't describe how majestic it is. Such fun memories and great reminder of who our Creator really is!!!
