Camping at Sequoia National Park

Off we go on a camping adventure with Grandpa and Grandma!
Traditional first stop at Quickly to get boba milk tea.
Sleeping boys and garlic.
Lunch at Sonic and then we arrive at Sequoia!
Very curvy roads and a few sick tummies.
We arrived at night and woke up to a beautiful morning.
Two beautiful campsites right next to each other and a bear box to protect our food.
Matthew found a BIG rock to sit on and look at the clouds.
It was COLD and the campfire was WARM! Yay!
That's it in the middle - doesn't look that big in the picture, but it is!
The General Sherman Tree.
Our campground dinner plans were rained out so we went to the Lodge and enjoyed an expensive, dry, warm dinner and a few card games.
Grandpa took a nap while the rest of us played Phase 10.
Time for a hike.
God's creation is amazing!
Our waterfall destination.
More beauty!
Family picture and cute critters.
Beautiful birds along the trail.
Delicious foil dinners after the hike.
More Phase 10.
The drive back home begins.
A dinner stop in Visalia to celebrate Angelica's 18th birthday at Olive Garden.
Family pic and cake.
Ice cream stop in Bakersfield on the way home. It was a fun trip!
