We had the opportunity to go to Yosemite National Park for a couple days at the beginning of November.  The weather was perfect and we had so much fun hiking and climbing rocks!  The park was off season so there weren't very many people there which made it nice for us to have more room to run!  The temperature was 50s during the day and 30s at night.  We stayed at the Tenaya Lodge right outside of the park and had our meals there and good hot chocolate!  They even had snow out on the grass so we could have a snowball fight!  Here are some pics from those couple of days!

My hands after throwing snowballs!  Numb!

 Bear hug!

skipping rocks with daddy at Mirror Lake!

God's beautiful creation

Look how close I was to the deer!  I would have gone up and pet it but Mommy and Daddy told me not to...

In the gift store...this pic is for some reason out of order...oh well!

Mariposa Tree Grove

Look how huge this tree was!!!

Jackson wanted to hike the whole time but was slowing Mommy and Daddy down...He hiked for awhile all uphill!  It gave Mommy a break on her back from carrying him...she said her shoulders hurt.

Finally made it to the top!  Brr!!!

Jackson's Eye Surgery

In October, Jackson had to have his tear duct unblocked. He had until 15 months for it to be unblocked, but never cleared on its own. So Mommy and Daddy had to take him early in the morning to the surgery center to be placed under to get it poked. Easy procedure, but still scary for Mommy and Daddy! Immediately, that day, his eye was soooo much better! No more goopy eye, crusted closed, runny, tearing, redness, etc. He did great and his eye has been GREAT since!!! Here are some pictures the morning of the surgery and then after!

Random Fun Fall Pics...and Halloween!

Kari and I were able to go to Disneyland with the kiddos... which is always lots of fun!

Jackson and Caiden

I went iceskating for the first time!!! Mommy said I did really good!

For Halloween, I was Peter Pan and Jackson was Batman! We both had lots of fun trick or treating and going to a Fall Festival afterwards! Mommy's camera didn't work too well when we were moving so fast so she didn't get lots of pictures.


Here are some pictures from the pumpkin patch and a pumpkin party in Fraiser Park!

Jacob and Cami on their hayride together!

Painting his pumpkin!

Not a good picture....didn't realize it downloading. He has a black eye and this doesn't help!
