Today I took the kids to Yosemite National Park for some hiking and nature time. We were driving along on the way to Bridalveil Falls when Maryam says, quite casually, Hey Mommy, there's a deer over there. Sure enough there was two does on the side of the road eating grass! We stopped and took pictures. Jax was so excited. He started listing off other animals he wanted to see. (elephants, zebras, dogs, hippos, monkeys) He's so cute!!!
We did the hike up to Bridalveil Falls and the kids loved it! Parts of the water was frozen. There was snow along both sides of the falls and both kids noticed it. That snow got them all hopped up on seeing and playing in the snow!
After the falls we drove on into the village for lunch. We ate lunch at the cute little deli there. I wanted to go to the Ansel Adams gallery but it is closed until April. :( We walked around the village, I bought the kids a few souvenirs, and the kids each picked out a post card for Daddy.
