Yellowstone National Park
Mike's Grandmother, Gladys Garner recently passed away at the age of 92. Her funeral was held in Burley, Idaho so we all piled into the truck and headed south on a 17 hour driving adventure. Yellowstone just happened to be on the way so we decided that would be a good place to take a driving break. The best part was that my Sister Stephanie and her family just happened to be there that day too!
We had just been in the park for a half hour or so when we drove past this black bear just off the road. It was so exciting to see all the animals. We saw Bison, Elk, deer, and Moose too.
We met the Fords at Old Faithful. Creed had this cool hat that Logan so admired so we bought one for both our boys too. These guys could not be more opposite but they are best buddies. It is so fun to see them together. They always have so much fun.
There goes Old Faithful.
This is our little family in front of Old Faithful.
In my defense, I am five months pregnant here and we had done a lot of driving. I'm just sayin'.
We just couldn't resist the suckers in the gift shop so we had to take a lollipop picture.
I think this was Spasm Geyser.
Here is my lovely and ever so talented Sister Stephanie.
After we saw Old Faithful we headed up the road to the mud pots (I think that's what they were, we saw a lot of geysers and such). This is Larry and me enjoying the stinky steam.
Here we all are (okay,minus me, I'm taking the picture). I thought our stroller parade was pretty funny.
Sadly we only saw the Fords for a few hours before we parted ways but before we left we went to see a few of Yellowstone's amazing waterfalls. Even Squeaky the mouse enjoyed the view.
I think the boys really enjoyed Yellowstone, it was sad the stop was so short but we plan on returning in few years.
Notice Campbell doesn't seem too thrilled in any of the pictures; the poor guy had ear infections and was in a lot of pain. He has had them for two months! We just can't get rid of them. Several rounds of antibiotics later and I think that we are finally almost in the clear. Keep your fingers crossed.
