Brooklyn, Dylan and Mommy
It was funny, as the girls were swinging, both of them liked to sit as far foward in the swing and kept their legs stick straight.
June Lake is a beautiful, natural alpine lake that gets its water from the glaciers around it. It is about 45 minutes away from the back entrance to Yosemite and the views are just gorgeous. We usually come to this vacation spot during the winter to snowboard, but with the quads, that has taken a back seat until they are older and we wanted to see what it was like during the summer. Other than the fact that everyone except Brian got a fever and cold while we were up here, we loved the beautiful weather, cool nights and oh the stars you could see! Nothing like being up in the mountains.
So many of these pictures are of the kids back sides. Its hard to capture them when they are so excited to see all the new sights.
We went and saw the old ghost town of Bodie. Part of the drive was a dirt road and going off the pavement made it very loud and bumpy. I turned around and saw Connor with a very concerned look and Dylan holding his hand as if to comfort him. So sweet!

Below are some pics of the town and the kids. We got many comments on the kiddos (as usual)and suprisingly many of them commented on their cute back packs. I, myself, will be over the top happy when we can go without those darn backpacks. But they do allow for some independence for the kids without letting them get to far. Connor and Hailey would probably do fine without them, but our little runners, Dylan and Brook would influence them to make a break for it.

The kiddos first bus ride on the way down to Devils Postpile.
More of our June Lake trip coming up next!
