Summer's Here!

It seems like summer's just started -- it's hard to believe its already July! Is it really possible that in only 6 short weeks I'll actually be looking forward to having a school-time schedule? Right now we're enjoying any unstructured time we have!!

We just returned from a family road trip to Yellowstone. It was fascinating! We spent two of our five days camping which was actually one of the best parts of the trip! Dan's a great cook and very confident in setting up camp so we were able to really enjoy ourselves.

We saw a bear, hundreds of bison and lots of elk. We took great hikes to waterfalls and a suspension bridge! Old Faithful was exciting as well as the anticipation that Yellowstone's biggest geyser, Steamboat, was due to erupt at any moment. It sputtered and spouted a good 50 feet and it was torture dragging ourselves away knowing if we stay for a FEW MORE minutes maybe then we'll get to see. (It erupts about every two years and is about a month overdue!) Finally we saw (and smelt) all the hotpots we could ever hope to see in a lifetime.

Now we're home and enjoying cousins visiting and the neighborhood pool opening.
