The first time I met the Bluefields, I was struck by two things. One: they are always on the go. Two: they eat often. It became kind of a joke between us--do an activity, then eat, do another activity, eat again. Our recent trip to Yellowstone and Grand Tetons National Parks was just like that. This made my family, and in particular AKD, very happy. And, in true Bluefield fashion, I feel like I need a vacation to recover from our vacation.
Here are some pics.
|Somewhere in Wyoming. The boys couldn't resist the opportunity to have a snowball fight in June. I hightailed it out of there as soon as one flew close.|
|Don't worry--it's not real.|
This is the moose at the visitor center... in Moose.
|...another beautiful waterfall. This was the day we traveled from Grand Tetons back to Yellowstone.|
|Most people think of Old Faithful when they think of Yellowstone, but there are hundreds of geysers, mud pots, hot springs, and steam vents in the park. We saw many of them. They were stinky. And warm.|
|The boys relaxing in our campsite. Yes, AKD's hammock is set up over the fire pit.|
|We rented an RV for the trip--this was my favorite campsite.|
|We saw bison, moose, elk, and a family of grizzly bears on our trip. This was the most up close and personal we got, though, in Custer State Park (SD).|
