An Adventure in Yosemite

Yosemite National Park

We took a day trip to one of the Natural Wonders of the World, Yosemite National Park! Yosemite is a family favorite of ours, it’s prestigious and majestic mountains are such an awesome sight to see. We are so lucky to live so close to such a beautiful place!
We have never taken Maverick or his cousin Axel to Yosemite so we had a few first timers. We were a little hesitant with Maverick but he actually did really well. The car ride was a little rough for him. He is still adjusting to his newer forward facing car seat mixed with an almost 3 hour drive there and about 3 hours back. Once we got out of the car we carried him around in his Snugli Crossroads Hiking Carrier (That one is not exact but similar). Maverick has never been a baby who liked carriers but he did AWESOME in this one! Towards the end of the day he wanted out which is understandable but for the most part he was so content and happy hanging out and hitching a ride!

I love this photo of Maverick and my dad! My dad is literally like a kid in a candy store when we got places like this. He loves being outdoors and his face is the perfect expression of how much he enjoys places like Yosemite! Maverick wanted to get in that water so bad! He did get his feet and shorts wet but I’m sure he would have loved to go all in!!
Lunch with a view! You just can’t beat it! We all went back to the cars, ate sandwiches, snacked on Brie cheese, grapes and crackers. Right as we were eating lunch a deer stopped right along side us and wanted to get a peek at what was for lunch. The wildlife in Yosemite are so people friendly!
Maverick rode on Uncle Stephens back for a little while to give mom’s shoulders a break! He did so well in that little thing!
This was in the car, Maverick was starting to get fussy. I gave him a little chocolate bar to play with (it was still in the wrapper) just a few minutes later I noticed he was pretty quiet. He had opened the wrapper and got to the candy! He really enjoyed that little 3 Musketeers!
Here is a video of our adventure in Yosemite! We use the GoPro Hero3+. Enjoy and thanks for stopping by! ๐Ÿ™‚
