Robert walked out of his last final of summer term (which he aced) and headed home. We stayed up late into the night with flashlights and shovels fixing a few sprinklers, then packing for a 6 day vacation to the cabin. We got up early the next morning and headed north.
The girls dug a new little flower bed but it felt more like a giant version of a Zen Garden.
We found interesting things at the Mountain Man Rendezvous. I did give in and buy myself some wonderful earrings. They are Bison.
We drove through Yellowstone. Here we are breathing in the hot pots.
"Don't act like you don't love that smell."
Mammoth Hot Springs
This big guy was taking his own tour of Yellowstone along the road.
Another great animal sighting.
It had been raining all day in Yellowstone and we enjoyed this gorgeous sunset on our way back to Island Park.
The Lookout tower.
I bet you thought it was called the "Lookout Tower" because it was used to watch for wild fires...
...but you may reconsider the name after watching what we did there.
Gone Fishin' with the ferocious Coshi.
The fires burned out throats but made for enchanted evenings.
The girls found a romantic old swing...
...and Robert found a frog.
Robert is a master reptile catcher. If it weren't for that ring on his left hand people might think he's just a big six year old.
Smoky air, but fun fun times at the Cabin. Thanks Gram!
