We love going on "a trip within a trip" which is why we went to Idaho to see our newest nephew Ty. Who, by the way, is super cute! And since they were only an hour and a half from Yellowstone, we just kept on goin'! We went with Grandma Petersen who had found a cute little historic hotel in West Yellowstone. There were some crazy moments with cranky, tired kids who had had there fill of the car, but overall we had a great time!
Some of our favorite moments of Yellowstone:
-almost hitting an elk as it came bounding down the mountain side
-getting charged at by a bison! (luckily we were in the car!)
-Anna and Lahna becoming junior scientist at old faithful
-watching the Beehive Geyser, which is even more impressive than Old Faithful.
-Anna and Lahna going into the bear habitat at the grizzly bear and wolf preserve to hide food for the bears. (and no, the bears were not in there at the time.)
And I hope you are not getting sick of the slide shows yet, because here is another one.
