I adventured in Mammoth with Rob’s family–with wake boarding, fishing (we caught some rainbow trout!), hiking, and mountain biking–and then we headed up to LA for some time with my family–celebrating a birthday, and a Bon voyage, and venturing to the Getty Museum–our vacation was flush with fun activities and beautiful scenery. {Pics Below} Smile
