Summer 2012 Vacation Part 2

The second half of our trip had us all over the place.  We flew from Indy to Phoenix to meet up with Grandma Robin and Grandpa Eddie.  After eating breakfast we headed out on the road and decided to stop overnight in Las Vegas on our way to Merced, California.  We stayed at the Hard Rock Hotel where I did not gamble or walk The Strip.  We ate dinner and walked around the big hotel before going to bed (three hour time difference is crazy!).  Wade and Eddie gambled and lost.  The next day we headed out to California.  We visited Wade's aunt and uncle's families, visited a petting zoo and play ground, ate some more, and went to a ginormous family reunion at their family's almond orchard? farm?  Anyway, there were a lot of people, a lot of a food, and a lot of delicious candied almonds that I almost stuffed in my purse to bring home with me.

Be prepared: loads of pictures ahead!

Dinner at Hard Rock Hotel . . . only family picture where we are all looking at the camera
and it turned out blurry

Lots and lots of desert

Entering Yosmite

Lucky Daddy got to carry Harper all around the park

Climbing a trail

Harper wanted to climb on all the rocks.  There are a lot of rocks
at Yosmite, in case you didn't know

FREEZING water that I couldn't believe she played in

Views from Glacier Point

Whenever Harper and Wade try to take a picture together, she refuses
to look at the camera.  This was the best shot.
