Oh hey I almost forgot I have a blog! Apparently last time I posted Charlie was just starting to pull up.....well we now have a walking, talking toddler who keeps me quite busy. He is currently very into balls, dogs, throwing things down and saying uh oh, climbing, running, not napping, and teething. Life is exciting!
I'm making my re-debut into the blogging world to show you pictures from our trip last weekend to Yellowstone. This was our first "vacation" as a family of three (that didn't involve going to visit family) and we had a blast.
Our car trip started with funny faces and then quickly changed to napping... (praise the Lord!!!!!)
We drove from Pinedale to Jackson, up over the Teton Pass into Idaho, and then into Montana...all in 3.5 hours. The drive was quite beautiful and I always love driving around here on roads we haven't driven before!
Save the Spud
We stayed at the Moose Creek Inn in West Yellowstone in the Moose Suite (how fancy!) Don't know why I didnt think to take any pictures of the place but I didn't, sorry! It was really nice though!
Throughout the next three days we explored and hiked through the park. Our little guy was such a champion seeing as how he was either buckled into his car seat or in the hiking backpack for most of the trip. We were definitely thankful for his compliance. Well, semi-compliance...by the last day it took both Mickey and I to get him strapped into his car seat. That boy is strong!!!!
Anyways, on to the pictures!
Sitting in a huge line for cars for about 20 minutes. I told Mickey when we got to the front we better see a pack of wolves eating a bear eating a moose....
But sadly it was just a buffalo in the road.
The bison were plentiful (see the baby on the right side? So cute)
One of the natural hot springs.
My cool action shot. The water on the left is boiling water coming out of the ground!
Another shot of some of the geyser pools.
A hooded Charlie in the camping pack.
Forest fire? Nah just smoke off the geothermal stuff.
One of the many beautiful waterfalls.
Huge waterfall in the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone.
See the little marmot? We saw him on one of our hikes.
Marmot playing with his buddy.
Back in this thing again?
Waving for the camera.
Fresh bear track we saw on a hike.
Family pic with the buffalo.
We had a great trip and were so thankful to get to see Yellowstone while we live up here. The whole park was gorgeous and it felt like each area looked so different.
Hopefully I will be back before another 10 months passes!
