A little late

this was taken on our very last day.
and now I know how Andrew feels being shorter than your younger sibling...

I have been meaning to post the rest of my Yosemite pictures (yes there's more)...so this is going to be the rest of them.

First off, the beautiful forests. Made me feel like I was in Twilight. I kept looking over my shoulder for Edward Cullen, but he was no where to be found...I was pretty sad that I didn't see the sparkle man.

The last of these images were taken along the 140 Highway. I think it's still considered Yosemite in these parts, but I am not really 100 percent sure. One thing I am sure of is that it was so B-E-A-U-T-I-F-U-L.

And that is how the trip ended.
Well...actually it ended a little bit like this:


Its been a while, but..

We're officially back from our trip.

Our stops included (in order):
-San Francisco
-Portland, OR
-Multnomah Falls, OR
-Hood River, OR
-Coeur D'Alene, ID
-Seattle, WA
-Lincolin City, OR (it's along the Oregon Coast)
-San Francisco

I have pictures. I really didn't take too many, but there are some of the very gorgeous places we saw along our journey. Stay tuned...I still need to edit them.

And if it's too much to wait Amy has posted some pictures from our stop in Idaho. They are hilarious.

p.s. I love this picture of Daniel and I. I think we're starting to dress alike. Is that good or bad?

p.s.s. There was only one problem that popped up on our trip...


Hello from Portland, OR

When can I move here?


Yosemite: The Most Gorgeous Water...EVER

It's not a fact really, just an opinion.

But you can't just sit there and tell me that the water isn't gorgeous.

I could swim in that right now. True story: Daniel actually mustered up the strength & courage to jump into the water. You see I was bothering him a lot, calling him a baby & such, because he was only in like knee deep. And I was swimming around, all alone, with no one to play in the water with, so I kept bothering everyone to get in already. He told me to cut it out or he would NEVER GO IN THE WATER AGAIN! Such a threat. Next thing I know this guys jumping in & then comes out gasping for air. He looked pannicked & his arms were swinging in the air like a maniac (he's really dramatic). I told him to quit freaking out, breathe, & swim really fast. He did, warmed up, & was my old Daniel again. He stayed in for a while, but I think he was still pretty freezing. Nonetheless, I was extremely proud of him.

I loved it so much. I wish we had rivers like this close to Santa Clarita. I feel like it's even better than the beach because it's in the middle of forests & it's beautiful!
In other news Daniel & I leave for our BIGlittle roadtrip tomorrow. I am so excited about it & I am almost tempted to leave right this second.


We made it

Of course...we got lost along our way to Yosemite...mapquest just isn't very reliable in the wilderness & Yosemite does not have any signs to direct you anywhere. It's ridiculous, but we stopped to try to ask people if we were going the wrong way a& then walked to the stream nearby. The water is beautiful and it's always shimmering with a rainbow of colors. Apparently it's also freezing, but I am a lover of anything that involves water so I tend to not feel the coldness like others. I thought the water was perfect, Daniel thought he would die if any body part touched the water.

Is it just me or does Daniel look like he has a huge chest? He's probably going to turn bright red when he reads this. I just love that I've seen him change so much through out the time we've been together. When we first met he was a little lanky 17 year old string bean.

We finally made it to the camps site & ate pizza at the Pizza Patio. It was delish.

So these are the little "cabin tents" that we stayed in. I'm not really sure how to explain them, but its like a really thin wood cabin with a tarp over it.

But they were very comfortable & it fits 3 beds inside those things, which was absolutely perfect for all 4 of us.

Daniel taking legit pics.

I call myself the documentor

& Daniel the artist.

When is comes to photography obviously.


Yosemite & Future Trips

We drove through the longest tunnel ever
& when we reached the end we saw this
& realized we weren't in saugus anymore.
This lookout is called "Tunnel View"

We just came back from Yosemite on monday night & I already miss being outdoors.

I absolutely loved Yosemite, it was so beautiful & peaceful. I might post a picture or two a day to show how beautiful this place was. There are already plans to go again next summer & I would love for this to turn into a family tradition because I feel like I haven't had enough of that place yet.

Thankfully my vacation isn't over...well technically it is because I work today, thursday, & friday, but I will be off again for a week & half because I am taking a pretty Big roadtrip (making a pit-stop for a wedding in Idaho for two really cute & awesome people). We leave saturday afternoon & arrive in San Fransisco that night & we'll probably stay there sunday night as well. (We haven't really made solid plans about how long we'll be staying places, but I like it that way). The next stop will be Portland, Oregon & the next stop after that will be at Hood River where we are going to meet up with Daniel's cousin Jason. Late wednesday night we will arrive in Idaho & then we leave there sometime saturday. I know for sure that we are stopping in Seattle, Washington, but after that it's all up in there air on what we're doing. What I do know is that I am totally excited & I can't wait.

We plan on staying a whole day or two in each city we stop. Please let this week go by quick.
