Big Springs...More Vacation

We always go to Big Springs when we are at Island Park. It is illegal to catch fish there- we just go feed them. FYI - they like canned corn better than the fish food that can be purchased for a quarter. The fish are HUGE!!

And the ducklings were "a-dor-a-ble", as Andi put it!

More Vacation...

My girls LOVED the fish - his squishy eyes, his cool guts as they were pulled out of its wee little body, his feathery tail. It was a proud moment...I was the family fish gutter in my youth, when we spent the summers at this same cabin. We would spend the day fishing, and then I would sit out on the porch and gut ALL the fish. I loved it...and then I didn't love it as much because it took forever, but I had to live up to my "family fish gutter" reputation. It was one of the few things I could claim that were a bit less "girly". My daughters enthusiasm made my dad laugh! Must be genetic!!

More Vacation...

Just imagine a whole post with pictures of us all riding this four wheeler. Cameron took his siblings on rides all over the place. I had a great time finding new paths to go on with each of the kids. We were so busy riding, I didn't take any pictures. Sounds like me!! It was Heavenly!!

More Vacation...

Yellowstone - beautiful and stinky!
Old Faithful - give or take 10 minutes of predicted time -
This time, it took an extra 10 minutes :-)

Amazing views in the park!

Swimming in the Firehole River - Awesome!

The water was the perfect temperature!

We had a GREAT time on vacation in Island Park! We went boating with my dad and a friend of his. Tubes and a knee board provided Fun, Fun, Fun!
