July 4, 2005 and Yosemite

Greg and Kim were dying for some REAL sun, so we went back to CA for one week. Our housing community recently built a nice pool, so we had the kids over to test it out. On 4th of July, we did our usual thing...hung out all day at Central Park with friends/family, brought a bunch of food, and watched amazing fireworks after dark. This year, Judy, Smelly, Aria, Grover, Siriporn, Susan, and John joined us. A few days later, we (Greg, Kim, Judy, Smelly, and Aria) went camping and hiking for 3 days in Yosemite. We took the Mist Trail, got soaked (but it felt good), and hiked to the top of Vernal Falls. Soooo beautiful. A bear tried to eat us, but we threw some turkey jerky at him and got away. Whew!
