But very enjoyable, nonetheless!!! Labor Day weekend would have been a 4 day weekend for us this year, but with my workaholic husband, there was no way that was going to happen. So we talked him into giving us a day and a half. I'll take it!! That's more time than we have spent with him in over a month.

Our friends, The Robinson clan, invited us to go up to The Trail of 100 Giants with them. It's about a 2 hour drive (what isn't a 2 hour drive around here?), so we packed a picnic and enjoyed spending some time together. We always have loads of fun with these guys, and it was so great to explore the Sequioas! Hopefully soon, we can go to the National Park.
These trees are MASSIVE, that's the only way to describe it. Pictures do not begin to do them justice, and I'm sure my words wouldn't either. So just enjoy all of these gigantor trees and try to imagine my commentary to go along with it.
We all loved it and want to go back again and again!
On actual labor day, we went for our first family hike. As some of you may recall from last summer, I'm really into family hikes ;) Travis, who works with Nate and also desperately needed to get away from the office for awhile, and his lovely wife Sharon, recommended Onion Valley. Travis had been that way a few years ago with the Scouts and remembered it to be a fairly easy hike. And, it's only (you guessed it!) about 2 hours away.
Evan was a champ! Thank goodness for good friends who let us borrow their baby pack. Couldn't have done it without you!
