We took 4 days off and headed for Yellowstone. There wasn't much relaxing going on, as we packed our days with animal watching, shopping, sight seeing, hiking/walking, bike riding, ice cream, and lots of driving. Jay has Earned the nickname "Bear" He didn't appreciate Yellowstone as much as the rest of us. My mom will be making him a shirt that says
"I put the YELL in Yellowstone" All in All He did well. We can't complain too much.
This picture is at the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone.
Jappy put up his hammock. The Kids enjoyed it
The girls took part in the Jr. Ranger program. They had to visit a certain amount of sights and fill out a packet of activities. They did a ceremony honoring their achievement. They loved the attention.

Everyday was packed with some kind of activity. We roasted Smores, visited with friends, and family, went to the beach walked the boardwalk, had ice cream had our family pictures taken, Thanks Cass your amazing!! And had a big 4th of July Bash.
Two of my brothers came to town during our time there. The kids had lots of people to entertain them. It doesn't seem that I did very well with taking pictures. but I'm sure the others will share their pictures. WON'T YOU.
When we got there we took the kids to a park that has a place for kids to enjoy the water. It has several fountains, that the kids can run through.
We spent some time at the lake. It was Chilly!! but the kids didn't mind it. (Silly Papa)
Check out that Hair. It's the wind look out on the boat
We tookk the girls to drive the go carts. We thought for sure mady would be tall enough to drive but she was a few inches short. Hopefully next year.
Nana got out the kiddie pool and girls never wanted to get out. Nana finished Mady's swim suit while we were there. Mady has waited almost a year to wear it. Thank you NANA Mady loves it.
At the parade. You can't see the girls shorts but I made them. It was hot the entire time we were there and nobody got sunburned. YEAH!! That night we watched the fireworks from the boat. The kids and the adults enjoyed it.
We were loaded and ready to go. Poor Duncan didn't want us to leave, or he wanted to go with us. We miss you too buddy.
