Railroads, Ziplining, + Birthday Cake

We saved the best activities for last on our final day of our family vacation in Yosemite. Our day began with a ride on the Sugar Pine Railroad.

Next up was the Tenaya Lodge for lunch. I ordered a veggie wrap with hummus, tomato, avocado, lettuce, alfalfa, and cheese, with a strawberry salad.

Our final family adventure was my favorite of the trip- ziplining! No one except my sister had ever been before, so it was a fun new experience that helped us all to trust each other and take a leap of faith.

After the first two zips, we had to cross a bridge over 500 ft in the air. Thankfully, I made it across in one piece :)

The fourth zip across led to a huge tree known as the “Grandpa Tree” because of its sweet smelling sap.

Finally, the course ended with a freefall repel down the top of the tree. It definitely gave me some flashbacks of repelling down the mountain with Nicole in Australia!

This is the second year in a row that for my dad’s birthday we have been on vacation. If you have been following my posts, you know that we celebrated his 50th this year and wanted to do something special. We ate a cute little Italian restaurant called DiCicco’s, sharing our pizza and pasta family style. Then my sister and I decided to surprise my dad with a happy birthday song from the waiters and a piece of celebratory chocolate cake… He was so surprised! It was a great ending to another great family vacation.
