June isn't the best time to visit Island Park - a bit rainy and cold - but it was still fun.
We all pitched in and rented a cabin, and we each were in charge of a meal or two.
We were missing Foster and Dallin(and his family) but we had a great time.
Here's about 1000 pictures to prove it..........
Elli & Lexy had so much fun together!!
the kids played at the park......
Anna was holding Ambree almost the entire reunion. She loves babies so much and Ambree really liked her too!
.....while the boys shot some hoops!
Dad may not be so young any more but he's still got it!!
4 great things about West Yellowstone......
1) huckleberry fudge (so yummy!)
2) the very nice salesperson who let me use the employee bathroom instead of walking a mile to the public restroom - he must have felt really sorry for me!
3) the other very nice salesperson who gave every one of the kids a free piece of stick candy
4) we didn't break anything in any of the gift shops we visited!
Yellowstone National Park
You can't leave Yellowstone without a few pictures of wildlife. This buffalo came right up next to our suburban begging for a picture! Check out that handprint on his shoulder!!
waiting for Old Faithful - didn't get any pictures of it but it was fun to watch my kids see it this time. They all thought it was REALLY COOL!!!!
our whole group (except for the other half of Corina - this is what you get when you ask a stranger to take the picture!)
Mom, Carissa & Genelle stayed at the cabin and had a nice girl's day!
a cheap family vacation
trying new recipes
spending time with my amazing parents, brothers, sisters, sisters-in-law, nieces, and of course my favorite husband in the world and the best kids a mom could ask for!
