have been tent camping since they were infants.
TODAY is STEPHANIE'S BIRTHDAY!
I'm feeling a little melancholy, so I'm posting some of my "favorite photos" from her YPN* birthdays!
Most summers, SLE (Stephanie) celebrated her BIRTHDAYS during family vacations at YPN* (Yosemite National Park).
our camping trips were times to connect with family (Acosta's & Enyart's), as well as best friends (Skids & KVC). Click HERE for photos KVC took of Stephanie's birthday.
such wonderful memories!
Nana & Papa bought the three girls "Annie" tshirts for this trip. The girl cousins spent a lot of time performing Annie songs on "The STUMP"
each summer, our goal was to get the campsite with
"The STUMP"... lots of activity happened on
(l-r: Keena & cousins Allie, Steph, Andrew, Reid & Jodi)
rafting, sunning, & dipping in the chilly Merced River was always on the agenda.
so, although Stephanie is all grown-up, and
lives on the other coast (Arlington, VA),
I still remember these days as if they happened last year!
we LOVE you &
send BIRTHDAY WISHES on your special day!
