You're a Tall Family

While growing up, people would always ask my father how the Hutton kids got so tall? His answer was "because they ate their vegetables?"

The 4th of July weekend was a blast! My sisters Becca, and Sarah; Sarah's husband Craig and son Chris; Cami, and I trekked to Northern California for 4th of July Weekend.

We visited places like Yosemite National Park where we saw Lord Stanley's Cup. We had a spanish language lesson from Sarah in the Mexican Restaurant just outside Yosemite. She tried to pronounce the name of the restaurant multiple times with the assistance of the server. This experience was like the movie, Blue Streak, when Martin Lawrence said in spanish, "I have a cat in my pants". Sarah was just being Sarah.

We spent the 4th of July in Livingston CA, with Grandma Yagi, and the CA Hutton's: Duane, Deanna, Trevor, Spencer, Aimee; and, others. We received a tour of the Yagi Farm. We learned about sweet pototoes, almonds, and peaches.

We spent time in the Sequoia trees of Big Tree. I think we were about the same height as some of these Sequoias. My brother-in-law is 6'6", I'm 6'4", Cami is 5'8", my sister's are 6'3" and 5'6", and my little nephew shown below is a giant.

Visting Nana was fun too. We were able to share our stories of our recent lives; share pictures of dad being silly, and laugh, eat, and play.

The first night after arriving in Stockton, CA we ate at Olive Garden. We had great laughs through dinner. But as we were filing out of the restaurant a server said to us, "You're a tall family". I quickly responded, "Thank You!" like I'd heard it before.

I am happy you could visit those places in California, that I enjoyed to go. If we lived in California we would probably goto Yosemite often. Perhaps we would go to places like Hetch Hetchy and Tuolumne Meadows.
