DAY 2 - Sunday:
These are kind of in reverse...After church today we took Jen and Melissa, who we affectionately call Mildred and Hazel...who knows how that got started....to Red Robin for lunch and then to see Get Smart, which by the way was hilarious.
DAY 1 - Saturday:
My baby girl is 17! We heard our mothers say it, but it just doesn't seem possible. Don't you moms of older kids still have vivid memories of when they were just little tikes? Well, this year was different because her brother wasn't here to celebrate with us, so the three of us took off on Saturday (the actual day of her b'day) to the mountains. We all had the itch to get out of town, so we headed for Sequoia National Park to see Grant's Grove (yes, named after General Grant of the Civil War). Every time I go to either there or Yosemite I am still in awe that these amazing places are practically in our back yard! After we toured the grove we really weren't ready to come home, so we headed over to Hume Lake. What a beautiful place and so relaxing...
