Thanks to Wanna Get Away fairs from Southwest Airlines, Kari and I are taking the kids back to Yosemite the day after school gets out. Yes, you ask. We do live in Dallas, but as you can read further on this site, we make it a habit to make at least one trip to Yosemite per year. The kids all are excited and really have taken to it. Which is a legacy I'm quite proud of. The first time Kari and I went it was weird to be there without my parents. Now if Kari and go without the kids, it feels weird to be there without them. How funny is that?
