Yellowstone

I know. I know. You all thought I dropped off the edge of the earth. But I didn't. I went to Yellowstone.

We took the kids for a trip to Yellowstone in May. It was still VERY cold, but so incredible. R's dad lent us their RV and little car to tow. The kids did great and enjoyed all the sights and animals. The rangers gave us a paper for the kids with pictures of animals that they can check off when they see them. They loved that and being able to check things off. We saw A LOT of buffalo (including babies), deer, elk, eagles, bear (and her cubs), and even a wolf.

This is a picture outside our car window. The Buffalo roamed wherever they wanted.

When we went to see Old Faithful, it was SO COLD. We could tell it was going to erupt soon, so we stood out in the cold to wait for it. MK was NOT happy to be out in the cold. She was tired and cold and hungry. She finally yelled "I don't wanna see it!" Then, she buried her face into my neck and passed out. She slept through it all. I finally put her down in her stroller as we walked around and went to eat. This is what she looked like:

All you can see of her is her nose! It was so funny. She slept for a couple of hours.

We went on a lot of walks/hikes around the area. One of our favorites was the Artists Paint Pots and Mammoth Hot Springs. Here's a picture of all three kids at Mammoth.

We had a blast. R took a million pictures on his super duper camera. The boys even took some and really got into it. Love vacations!
