Ok! this is the finally the last post of  our trip! I knew if I didn't do it while we were on our trip it would take me forever, and it did! It kind of has been a thorn in my side to finish!

We went to back to Claremont for a couple of days as our last
stop on our journey . This was the most anticipated stop of the trip! It was soo good to be back "home". It felt like home! It was so good to see everyone! We swam, ate, and talked the night away.

The "men"  were always crowded around the food table

We invaded the Bakers pool...

The spa was apparently the place to be.. We are hoping for some marriages some day between these kids!

Grandma and Grandpa Sharps!

On the second to last stop of the trip we hit Poway to see Aunties, Uncles and Gpa and Gmas. I am a horrible picture taker and for some reason only got a couple pictures all in the pool and none of the Gpa and Gmas!
But I did manage to get one with the funnest Auntie ever! Auntie Katy!

Gpa and gma were sooo nice!
They even heated their spa so it would be warm

We play a game called "cootie" 

In this game someone puts a small stick at the bottom of a pool and 
then when it floats to the top everyone jumps in and the first to grab it 

everyone sees the stick and jumps to get it

The twist to the game is that once someone grabs the stick they must 
bring the stick to a wall of the pool and that is when it gets brutal. 

It was soo fun to see all our relatives in Poway! We miss them! Come visit us soon!

Sequoia National Park

After driving for 3 days to arrive at The Grand Sequoia's we  made a quick stop in Yosemite. It was so crowded that we stayed for 20 minutes, hiked to Bridalveil Falls and then hoped back into the RV to find an RV park for the night.

Aww "B" is almost as tall as "D"..

We met up with The Nolte's at The Grand Sequoia's which was way less crowded than Yosemite! 
Thank Heavens! 
We were all so excited to see them!

Tunnel Log, you can drive a car through the middle of this tree.

Best buddies!

 "T" felt really sick after we climbed up to the top of a site. So we slowly crept down the stairs. It was a half mile  hike down a bunch of stairs, which with a sick lil guy felt like 20 miles. If course I thought of the worst possible scenario. He had a really bad pain in his stomach., every few minutes he had to sit and couldn't stand up straight.

So "D" and John gave him a  priesthood blessing then took him back to camp and after a good bathroom break he was fine.. Hehe moms are worry worts!

Love this girl ! So good to catch up and hang, just like old times!

 Camp Fire games!!

                                        If you look closely you can see that the kids are all smoking sticks.. The ash would fall and burn holes in chairs and pants, not a good thing!

The Nolte's!

It was soo fun to see them. Thanks for driving all the way up to spend a few days with us!! 
Love you guys!!
