Girls Weekend in Murphys & Happy Birthday Kelly!

Happy Birthday to my Best Friend Kelly! Today she is 24 years old, and we celebrated this weekend with a girls trip to Murphys. Kelly's parents moved to Murphys a few months back, and so Kelly thought it would be a great idea to house swap with them for the weekend. So, nine of us girls went up to have some fun in the mountains for the weekend.

On Saturday night, we went to dinner, watched the Giants win a game at another restaurant, and then went out dancing. We danced for 3 hours and it was so fun, even though we were the only ones there not in a Halloween costume (guess we didn't get the memo).

During the day, we hiked around Calaveras Big Tree State Park, which apparently used to be one of the seven wonders of the world at one point (but who knows). It reminded me so much of hiking around the Muirwoods just north of San Francisco. The trees were so big and tall and beautiful. After our hike, we went to White Pines Lakes to eat lunch and kayak. Kayaking around the lake was my favorite part of the day. It was just so peaceful and fun being in nature.

Here we are again at Hotel Murphys. Somehow, we managed to go here every day of the trip, which made us totally feel like locals since we started recognizing the same people. The trip was such good girl bonding, and I am so glad that I got to spend time with these amazing people! These girls are all so fun to be around, and we laughed too much together. They are all such beautiful people on the inside and out, and I feel so lucky to have formed friendships with each of them!
