1st Grade and Yellowstone

Kaleb is at his first day of first grade today. Ashton doesn't know what to do without his buddy. Every couple of minutes it's "Where's bruh-bruh?" (brother) or "I need to get bruh-bruh" or "I miss bruh-bruh." Kaleb was most excited about eating lunch at school. We're trying the school lunch to see how he does with that. They give them 5 choices, one of them being peanut butter and jelly everyday so even if he isn't interested in other 4 options there's always PB&J.

We had a great time in Yellowstone although it was cold. We had to bundle up most of the time but every so often the sun would come out. It only rained one night but there was alot of rain so we did get water in our tent. I'm glad we were on air mattresses.

Kaleb and Ashton loved seeing all of the animals and geysers. We only did the lower loop of the park and maybe in a couple of years we'll go again to see the upper loop. Here are some (okay, alot) of pictures.

Kaleb really wanted binoculars and so the first day we bought him some. I didn't think he would be interested in them after the first day but he never took them off. He loved looking at everything through them.

The water was really blue.

We enjoyed the warm steam coming from the geyser's.

We saw it 3 times and luckily the first time wasn't windy or extremely cold. The 2nd and 3rd time the wind blew the water into the crowds of people and so the steam blocked you from really seeing much of the geyser.

Although we didn't see any bears we saw just about everything else.

Yellowstone Lake
The lake is huge, I took this picture as we were in the car stopped for wildlife on the road.

The last night at our campground we walked down to the river so Kaleb and Ashton could throw rocks.

We even saw a deer crossing the river while we were there.

It was a fun trip with Matt's parents and we're glad we were able to go. This world is an amazing place and I loved looking at all of the amazing scenery.

Yellowstone has to be one of my favorite places.

I love Yellowstone! We used to go a lot when I was little and I can't wait to take Conner some day! I agree, it is beautiful! And when did your hair get so long?

Ahhh, rock throwing. Every boy's favorite past time....I live vicariously through you. Just wanted you to know that.
