Trip to Yellowstone

Since my family was all in Rexburg at the end of July we decided to take a trip to Yellowstone since most of my family hasn't been. August 2nd we loaded up the burb and drove the hour and a half it takes to get to Yellowstone. The park was nice that day just a little windy. We saw elk and a moose, but I wanted to see a bear! Maybe some other day.We got rather lucky with Old Faithful. We parked walked to the park and 30 seconds later it started to blow. The next eruption was scheduled to happen an hour and a half later. I'm so glad we didn't have to wait! (That's my little sister Lindsey in the bottom right corner.... I'm not so good at taking pictures, I guess)
A tree that had fallen over and made this rather appropriate sculpture perfect for picture taking!
I'm not quite sure why there was a moom man wandering around the painting pot or whatever it was called. But there was another guy filming him and they thought it was funny that everyone wanted pictures with him. I sure wonder what they were filming for...... and if I'll be in it?

Not quite lined up like it should be. But you get the idea, right?
Vicki, Lindsey and I after Old Faithful blew.
One way to get a 3 year old to sit still for a picture and smile is to have him pose. Hence, the thumbs up. Whatever works! Too bad Claire is just a leg and a white hat... she's pretty cute. I'll show her off in another blog.

Looks like fun! I haven't been to Yellowstone in years. I'm a loser.
