The weekend was a huge success!
We all had such a great time in Yosemite. The weather really worked out for us (mid-80s every day) and the water falls were in their full glory! The Ahwahnee Lodge was magnificent - we're totally spoiled now!
We had two full fun-filled days of hiking and enjoying the great outdoors. We hiked around the Giant Sequoias - the largest trees that I've ever seen! We also hiked up and around the most glorious water falls. It was the perfect weekend to experience Yosemite.
It was so nice to spend the weekend with the whole family - it's the first time that all of us have been on vacation together in more than 8 years. My Mom said it was the best Mother's Day present she could have imagined. It was so relaxing, and so much fun.

One of the highlights of the weekend was the 6 of us playing "Yahtzee" on our final night. During the last game, we may have broken all Yahtzee records: we had two players (Dick and Graham) each roll 2 Yahtzees, and my Dad and Sister each had one as well. It was such a high scoring game, and we all had a blast.
Thanks again to my wonderful Mom and Dad for arranging the whole trip. It was certainly a vacation that I'll always remember!
