CAMPING && MUSIC FESTIVALS!!

Hey guys!! This past weekend Tyler, his brother Grady and I went on a little camping trip to Inyo county for a music festival called Millpond.  Every year some of Tyler's family will go too and it is sort of like a small reunion.  It has now become a tradition to go and it was so lovely to be out in the middle of no where with gorgeous scenery and fresh air.  ((:  









These were all taken while driving through Yosemite.













Saturday morning, Tyler, Grady, Tony (their dad) and myself, went into Bishop to have breakfast and go golfing.  I do not golf, but I love watching them play and riding around in the golf cart.  LOL
