**so sorry at how late this is!! but enjoy!! :)**

This last weeked we went down to Yoesmite National Park. our main reason for going was to meet up with friends of ours from Georgia that drove from Florida to California!

We arrived on Thursday, and i was trying to get a small cell phone reciption at our hotel... guess who didn't get serivce?? yup.. a whole weekend no cell phone, and no wifi since i was going to pay $.09 a minute for wifi... and i survived... i know, a major shock!

I still used my phone for time and games and photos, sadly no facebook, texting, or instagram all the way out there :/ but omgosh it was nice to disconnect! It was GORGEOUS!

(these pictures are in no particular order.. just as a warning :)

Get ready for major pictures, because i took over a 100 with the camera and quite a few with my phone!
