Even when there are no light sabers around, sticks can make due and the battles can continue.
I was so excited to drive thru this tree. Mostly to say that I did it, but it was very cool and unreal that this tree is that big.
If I could say I had a favorite tree, this would be one of them. This is the brotherhood tree. It is like 1200 years old or something.This is the root of a tree that has fallen down. I wish I would have stuck Bri in there so you could see how big it is. When you walk through these trees, it almost feels like you have entered another world. Like Lord of the Rings or something. You feel miniature.Okay, so I hope I have posted enough pictures of trees :) Maybe just enought o convince you to go, it was so wicked awesome. Oh, and of course, we cannot forget the ever popular lunch in the back of the van. Will finished his lunch and sighed and said "This is the best day ever" I gues that makes all of the driving and frustration of the drive worth it.
Now onto the beach.
I may have only been 58 degrees, but that did not stop us. The sand was warm so of course Mojo loved it.
She was a little iffy about the waves, but was a good sport.I am also pretty sure that Mo ate her body weight in sand.Will loved chasing the waves and searching for "agates" with his dad. I think an agate is a rock that has been tumbled by the ocean waves and starts to become transparent. Grey had an unfortunate tumble in the waves (he did not run fast enough) so he spent most of the second day playing in the sand. (Although, I don't think he minded that one bit) We usually hit the beach by 3:00 and the fog and mist had allready rolled in. It gave the beach a really cool feel. The kids had a blast chasing waves and plaing in the sand.
After plenty of sweet trees, a whole lot of driving in the car and some fun at the beach, we are now in San Jose, Cali. Miranda is taking us to ride a train today and the go to the beach, so there will be many pics to follow. Oh and of course wicked tomorrow!!!! So stay tuned for more boring pics from our family vacation :)

Next we were off to Grandma Fulks house to have some fun in the sun. Dad of course had to join in on the fun. Much to my suprise, Morgan was in love with the slip n slide. I had to pull her off to let the boys slide and she would crawl right back in. She stayed in until her lips were blue and I had to pull her away screaming. The boys of course had a blast.
Later that evening we went down by th falls to enjoy the Fireworks show. Mojo just sat and stared at it all, Grey bear was burried in his Grandma's chest, but actually watched most of the show without his hands over his ears. Will was hyper the entire evening and cheered for all of the fireworks. They all sacked out after our short hike back to the car. We got home about 12:30 am and found that our fridge door was left ajar and all of the food inside was ruined. I cleaned up the mess while Brian ran to Winco for some grub for Sunday. We had a great 4th.
