Summer Vacation

Last week our family took a vacation! We spent two nights camping in Yellowstone and then two nights staying with friends in their cabin in Jackson Hole. We had a great time! We saw the sights of The Park, fished a little, picnicked a lot, applied mosquito repellant, had plenty of smores and hot chocolate, visited the souvenir shops, got dirty, took over 100 pictures, canoed in the shadows of the Tetons, reapplied mosquito repellant, saw buffalo, elk, deer, chipmunks, and birds, waited in construction jams, reapplied mosquito repellant, heard coyotes howing at night, watched the Jackson Hole shootout, and arrived home Sunday afternoon with plenty of mosquito bites as evidence of a great outdoor adventure. We can't wait 'til next year!

Oh, how FUN!!!!!
I'm so glad you got to do a fun family vacation!
I'm extremely jealous though... I need a vacation in a bad way.

Somehow, camping just seems to fit your family. You couldn't have picked a better spot. Gorgeous! I'm anxious to see more of your photos NEXT WEEK. :) See you then!
