I just uploaded photos from our long and exhausting hike yesterday (I'm so sore. Even my shoulders and arms! How is that possible?) when I realized that I haven't created my final recap of our Yosemite weekend. So I shall attend to that first because the Type A in me is going crazy about not getting that up.
For the record, I post recaps of our trips for memory preserving purposes. I understand that they might be yawn-worthy to you and anyone else that isn't me or my mom.

So high. So many crazies on tight ropes.
Yeah. No words. We sat there and watched them for about 30 minutes and headed back. Didn't know our hikes would come with free entertainment.
So that concludes my Yosemite Birthday Weekend trip, which took place in October. It is now December. You'd think I'd be better at this whole blogging thing by now...
