Mother's Day Weekend

On Mother's Day weekend we did a bit of touristy traveling here in California. On Saturday, we went to visit Hearst Castle. If you've never been, it is a must see! We had a great time and the castle is beautiful! Bring Benadryl if you are allergic to flowers even in the tiniest bit, my face swelled so I could barely see, my eyes and nose were runny, and I couldn't stop sneezing from the beautiful flower gardens, but it was worth every minute! I won't go back without allergy meds though! We even stopped in Paso Robles for a little walking around and a yummy dinner. We can't wait to go back to check out some of the wineries!

Then on Sunday, we went to Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Park. First we drove down, what seemed like, the never ending road and ended up at Crystal Cave. We had a wonderful time exploring the cave, but the walk back up the hill was a little tough. After the cave we drove to the LodgePole Restaurant on top of one of the great big hills and had a wonderful time exploring the path and eating a yummy dinner. It was a long and tiring day, but so much fun! We even got to see a baby black bear!
