Snowshoeing in Yosemite

Friday around noon Amy and Paul decided to go snowshoeing in Yosemite. Five hours later, we were packed and on the road. Lucky for us we picked a gorgeous, sunny weekend. Paul was a trooper, telling stories and inventing games for his wiggly load of James. James gets props for yelling, "I love the trees!" and then taking an hour-long nap while we hiked. And Amy took her fancy new Camelbak on its maiden voyage. Oh yeah, and she hiked the 5 miles while 7 months pregnant.



  • awwww, this brings back memories of snowshoeing in Provo Canyon to frozen waterfalls...I'm not a big skier, but I love snowshoeing. Good for you guys!

  • Amy you're my hero! Way to be tough. I dream of snow shoeing one day, I've never been. You inspire me to go with baby though--I would never know so much was possible w/o your example, seriously. Also, kudos to Paul for biking to work and for you both for being a one car family! We hope to always and forever be a one car family; there are so, so, so many reasons to do it.

  • It looks like it was a gorgeous weekend. Glad you guys had fun. Oh yeah, and Amy I'm not sure you are human. If that doesn't put you into labor early nothing will. I hiked Moab 7 1/2 months pregnant and surprise 1 week later we had Max.

  • Go Amy! That's impressive. I can barely walk while I'm pregant, forget doing anything active! No wonder you look so cute!

  • I thought it was just the woman's feet that swelled during pregnancy.
