Yosemite National Park: Day 9, 10, and 11

We spent two full days exploring,{day 9 was technically a driving day} and that wasn't nearly enough time to see all the amazing things that there are to see at Yosemite National Park. I think we probably only saw a third of the sights! We spent most of our time in the valley riding our bikes, hiking, and exploring. 
 Silly boys! I think Jason took this picture of the boys while I was trying not to pass out climbing up the {super steep} trail!
 We climbed the Mist Trail {almost} to the top. We quickly learned why they call it the Mist Trail...the mist from the waterfall started getting us wet right after we turned the corner up those steps. 
 The climb was well worth it when we got to the top! The view of the waterfall was awesome!
 And the boys were amazed at all the rainbows:)
 We hiked to Mirror Lake and walked across the freezing water. We splashed around in the water for probably 15 minutes and my feet were numb from the cold!
 The next morning we went to check out Yosemite Falls.


 We tried to go tubing on the Merced River, but Eli was 5 pounds too light for us to rent a raft! The boys were disappointed but there was plenty of other stuff for us to see and do. We did a little more exploring and hiking around the valley. 

After lunch a storm started rolling in, so we found some inside things to do for the rest of the day.
Pin It!

Those pictures are just amazing...look at those waterfalls!!!! The picture Jason took of the boys is too cute. And the picture of you and your men in front of the falls is so nice and should be framed :)
