Dreaming of Cali

We had a fantastic time visiting CA this summer. We stayed in San Jose and went to my cousin Beatrice's wedding. The kids were very excited to see the ceremony and then watched Finding Dory during the reception.

Then we went to SF to visit Mark and his family, hanging out with Baby Andrew at his place, playing Monopoly and checking out Dolores Park. We picked up a few pastries at Tartine Bakery and went to the cafe at Chez Panisse for lunch. This checked off one item on my bucket list and we wrote out a few more items.

After this visit, we headed to Yosemite, where we were duly impressed by the majestic views. We saw Lower Yosemite Falls, Half Dome, El Capitan, Bridalveil and Glacier Point. Both kids earned their Junior Ranger badges, when they weren't arguing in the back seat. The highlight was seeing a bear cub cross our path on the way to Mirror Lake. We watched it for awhile and then it bounded across the path we were on. Exciting sighting!

We also got to catch up with friends, The Do Family, in San Jose. The kids played, caught june bugs and Owen even got to ride a hoverboard. A fun time had by all! See the whole set of photos from CA.
