Week 24

Week 24 (26th-1st) were full of traveling fun. We headed to SF for Womo and Yushan's wedding, but along the way we also got to see Yosemite and Sequoia national parks.

Off to California

We had a great Uber, flight, and drive on our way to San Francisco and then off to Yosemite. Josie travelled well and really liked the bright red colors at In-N-Out Burger.

Josie enjoyed the wildlife and waterfalls in Yosemite. She had fun driving the windy and steep roads, traversing sub-alpine trails, and posing for many many photos.

Sequoia National Park

The largest trees in the world were no match for little Josie. She climbed a tree, saw a bear, and climbed on top of Moro Rock (a giant granite dome overlooking the park).

Josie loved all the big giant Sequoia trees. She thinks she'll be as big and tall as them when she's older.

San Francisco

Our first adventure in San Francisco was to Half Moon bay on the Pacific Ocean. We had a fun lunch at a tiny food truck (actually, it was a train car) and walked along the beach. Right after we got a family photo Josie spotted a gray whale! The wedding was absolutely gorgeous and it was such a treat for Josie to see all of her friends and family. Josie loved seeing several views of the Golden Gate bridge, walking along the giant giant Coastal Redwoods at Muir Woods, and then traveling through downtown San Francisco.

Back on Home

The trip back home was easy breezy. After a great breakfast with the Iyegha crew, we got a ride to the airport from Patei in their 15 passenger van (almost filled!). Josie even slept during most of the flight to MSP.
