We were able to take a much needed vacation with our family and extended family on Doug's side, to Angels Camp California. I had never heard of Angels Camp and had no idea what to expect.
We talked Jordon's Amanda into going with us and the brave girl that she is, said yes! We had so much fun with her and Ellie. Ellie did so good in the car for a 2 year old. She didn't start asking Grandpa if we were there yet until we were in the parking lot of the condos! We also took Kasey and Natti's Jaqai with us. They both did amazing for the 10 hour trip.
Angels Camp is an old mining town in the middle of California. It is famous for the frog jumping competition that they have annually in May, I wish we could have been there for that, sounds like loads of fun.
We had tons of fun, exploring the Big Tree National Park, river floating in Yosemite, the craziest 4th of July parade I have ever seen, playing in the water at the caves, LOTS and LOTS of swimming and fell head over heels in LOVE with the neighboring town Murphy's.
The kids had so much fun "cousining" with their cousins, they are all growing up so fast, I think pretty soon it will just be the brothers and sisters (how boring) all the fun kids will be gone-
Thanks to Grandma and Grandpa for a fun vacation.
