|Rainy Afternoon in Yosemite National Park|
Anyway, this is going to be a fairly quick post from a trip we took the weekend before last to Yosemite National Park. Eng-Shien, Bill, Henry, and Arturo reserved a tent cabin in Curry Village for the weekend and had been planning to do a bit of climbing.

That said, the valley was just spectacular. The amount of water flowing everywhere was amazing. I don't think I have ever seen that many waterfalls in Yosemite.
Saturday we spent the afternoon up at Yosemite West and the evening down at Curry Camp for Eng-Shien's Birthday Dinner. Sunday we all took a short hike out to Mirror Lake. Suwei and I are still testing out how long Keira can stand being toted around in her carrier. This trip she lasted just about 4 hours. However, we had a little bit of a melt down when we caught the shuttle bus back to the lodge. Keira really seemed bothered by how fast the trees and everything outside of the bus were moving. We realized then, that she had never been in a vehicle and not been strapped into her car seat. She didn't like it one bit. Either that or she didn't like the driver's "bear" jokes. Jokes so bad, they were on par with Arturo's arsenal.
In summary...a nice weekend, wish it was longer. Here are some photos:
