Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!!

Happy Thanksgiving to all of you! Well. . .this is actually yesterday's photo on our way to Yosemite. It looks pretty ominous! Yup. . .it was raining but we arrived safely at Yosemite! There is a lot of things in life to be thankful for. . .and arriving in one piece is one of them! LOL!!

Thank you for being such wonderful blog readers, blog commenters, and blog friends!! It's been another wonderful year of getting to know all of you, meeting new people, creating, and sharing!!
I hope you and your family have a wonderful day, eating turkey, spending time with family. . .

I'll blog a few photos each day. . .there's a lot of beautiful things to see here at Yosemite. It's too bad the weather will prevent us from roughing it in the wild!! LOL! We won't be camping outdoors that's for sure. We're staying at the Tenaya Lodge. . . we are the "I don't rough it in the wild" sort. . . gotta have a bed, restaurants, and room service!!! Besides, I'm afraid of bears, snakes, and all those creatures roaming around. I wouldn't know what to do if I came across one. LOL!

Anyway. . .have a great day everyone!!

Look at what we woke up to this Thanksgiving morning!! It's nice and SUNNY!! Yay!! I was getting a bit worried that our vacation will be rained out!! We'll be doing a bit of hiking today . . .just taking advantage of the sunny weather!

Anyway. . .just a few photos I took this morning at the Tenaya Lodge. The photo above is the lodge we're staying at.

This is a picture of the entrance area of the lodge. They already have Christmas decorations up. How fun!! Anyway, we had a nice breakfast and we returned to the room to rest a little before we head out!
Hope you all have a beautiful day!

More Updates. . .today's hike! Roughing it in the wild a little. . :)

Hi Everyone!! We're back from our hike. We hiked about 4 miles today. . .we were going to go further but we were afraid it was going to rain. The day started off sunny but as the day progressed it began to get a bit foggy.We did manage to hike it down to the river. . .it was pretty.

The hiking trail was well paved so it was easy to walk through the trail. Here's a photo of the trail with my daughter and husband.

 Here's a photo of me and Alexis. We were just playing around! I wish the weather was better. We could explore more but with the weather being unpredictable, we didn't want to venture off the main path in the case it suddenly rained.

I really like this scenic shot of the trees and my daughter. I took a lot of photos. 

We're back in the hotel now. . .resting before we head down to the restaurant for our Thanksgiving dinner. Yummy!!
Hope you all have a yummy dinner!!
