looky where we went!!!!!
It was SO much funner than I thought it would be!
This old girl......we had to waaaaaiiiitttttt for.
Wasn't quite on the ball.
She must be getting a bit old!
but it was cooooool!!!
and Kristen's favorite thing of the ENTIRE trip.
In fact, we sadly missed seeing it blow again while we sat in a cafe for lunch...forgetting to add an hour to our watches ;( She was sorely disappointed.
Our second day we spent in Mammoth Hot Springs.
A gloomy and rainy day...but it sure added to the eeriness of it all ;)
It's also the only day we found a picnic table to eat our lunch on....which we had to hurry through because of rain. And it was also the day we left the hotel not realizing Jack was in flip flops!
Water running down from the upper hot springs that are further down on this post.
closeup of this mountain side.
there are signs every where warning visitors to NOT touch the water.
It will remove the flesh right off of ya....it's that hot.
Just a couple of cuties along the way ;)
These white caps were also Kristen's favorites.....she like to call them marshmallows.
Some hot water trickling down....
the flip flop boy.
the hot springs.
this is a closeup of what the ground looks like in this particular section of the hot springs. It varies from place to place.
The worlds first infinity pool ;) How cool is this hot spring?!!!!
I have to be honest here....when the kids said they wanted to go to Yellowstone, I worried they might be bored. But they insisted....and seriously, I think it's one of the best vacations we've ever taken. They loved it. Every day was filled with a completely different area of the park with totally different scenery.
We slept in everyday, didn't rush. It was glorious.
I totally, like for real, recommend it.
and I've got more where these came from.
Just you wait ;)
