Sequoia National Park

Tony and his family along with Greg, Emily and I visited the Sequoia National Park for a couple of days. It was absolutely breath taking and we all had a great, great time. We stayed at the Buckeye Tree Lodge just outside the entrance - definitely recommended.   All God's creation in full bloom.  I went through Bakersfield to get there which is the most north I have travel since I have moved here.  The drive up to Sequoia had lots of mountains, farmland, orange trees, wineries and lakes.  We went past Pyramid Lake which lined the road for quite some time.  There is a Pyramid cut out in the rocks.  We met a couple from Germany taking a two month vacation in the United States in a rental RV.  Tony and Rikki did the cooking.  Kru, Emily and I enjoyed a water gun fight.  Jax enjoyed the stairs.  Greg enjoyed having his own room at the cabin and taking lots of pictures.  It was a nice trip.

Beach Day

After church, Emily and I joined Nina (running friend) at the beach. Emily played in the water and drew pictures in the sand while we chatted. Weather was nice. Another beautiful day God has given.

San Diego Wild Animal Park

Rikki, her Mom, myself, Emily, Kru and Jax went to the Wild Animal Park this Saturday. The weather was perfect. The kids had a great time and Emily is ready to go back and explore some more. We got there a little late so we didn't get to see everything. I liked the lush foliage everywhere.
