We are officially on vacation! The wedding was wonderful and now we are on our way to Wisconsin! 
But first, YOSEMITE NATIONAL PARK! We had so much fun! 
Sorry I seem to be in most of the pics, but just before we left for CA, we bought a new Sony SLR digital camera and I let Randy break it in.

Oh my gosh, the trees are ginormous! Everything soars high into the heavens. I continue to be in awe of God's creation. These pics can not begin to capture the grandeur. Hey, that's me among those trees.

Yes, that would be me inside the trunk of an enormous fallen tree! 
I'm game for any fun, wacky photo ops!

Big trees and big rocks are everywhere!

So, as I explained before, when we travel we sleep in our van. In our early years of marriage, we did this because we had to. Now we do it because we want to! As you can see, we are snug-as-a-bug-in-a-rug! SOOO warm & cozy under my soft, fluffy vintage bedding. Saturday night it was 40 degrees when we woke up!
We cover the windows with this blue thin foam that Randy custom cut to fit each window perfectly. And we found the perfect white noise... a battery operated fan from Walmart that lulls me to sleep.
And lest you think I can camp in our van for days on end, well you're wrong. I can do it for two days in a row... and then it's time for a shower and clean clothes. Custer, South Dakota, here we come!
Hey, be sure to check in now and then. I'll be posting when I get me some wi-fi. Until then, I'm loving the time with my sweet Honey!

I'm so glad to see that you made it to Yosemite. Too bad you didn't find a little romantic spot to stay in the area. The custom van-bed looks comfy though.

Looking forward to seeing more of the countryside with youR posts. We've been getting lots of rain and cloudy days and Terry caught a sad for him. Please pray for him to get over it soon and for us to have at least a few hours of sunshine while we're in these beautiful mountains so we can get some good pictures.

We're still having though, as you'll see from my posts.

The last line should have read, "We're still having FUN though!"

Oh, sleeping in the van brings back memories. Those are good ole days.
