Dan and I went up to Yellowstone last week and it was awesome. We stayed in Island Park with his family most of the time in a tiny cabin they have rented for over 30 years! It was quite an adventure to be in that tiny place with 12-20 people at once but we had fun. We were also able to visit my aunt and uncle who were renting a cabin up there as well.

We loved the cool mountain air, relaxation and sight seeing. It was a great time and we were sad to come home.IMG_5864 Feeling the wind in my hair….IMG_5862 IMG_5868 Mia can be a little temperamental and is pretty shy and only likes a few people to hold her. She loves Joe and she even fell asleep in his arms! So cute!IMG_5869 Enjoying the gorgeous views of Yellowstone Lake.IMG_5873 IMG_5874 IMG_5881 Cutey cute kids. They made the trip tons of fun. I’m not sure what Addy was doing above, but she is such a funny girl.

This guy was walking on the road in the lane next to us for awhile! They were HUGE!IMG_5884

IMG_5886 This is at Artist’s point and I haven’t been here since I was a little kid and it was so gorgeous. This picture kind of looks fake to me!IMG_5887 Addy and I having fun taking silly pictures.2010-08-03 IMG_5888 We rented a canoe for the day and Dan and I went down the river with Becky and Addy. It was so beautiful and not too hot at all. We loved it so much!

It was really big and gorgeous and made us want to get our own cabin someday!IMG_5904 Enjoying a yummy huckleberry milkshake.IMG_5910IMG_5908 IMG_5911 Addy and Wellyn sat down at this tiny kid table and right away Addy starting talking like a princess and Wellyn was making burping and choking noises. Girls and boys are so different; some things never change…IMG_5912 This is at Mammoth and there were tons of Elk all over the place, just eating and sitting in the shade of all the houses! It was pretty cool. IMG_5924 Crazy little boy. IMG_5917 Dan and I at Tower Falls at the end of our trip. We had tons of fun and I love doing things together with him and our families!IMG_5926
