Cabin trip

Cabin Trip

Our trip to Island park and Yellowstone was fun.  There was still a bit of snow (a lot in the back).  It was not terribly cold though.  We had a fun time in Yellowstone.  We did not see a bear-we have some built in bear repellent I think.  For at least the last two years, my parents and sister have seen bears but we never have. Dumb!  Apparently they have been having a lot of troubles with Grizzlies in Island Park, especially near Macks Inn.  Which, by the way, is at the bottom of the hill from our cabin!  One incident happened just on April 30 only a few block from our cabin and on the same street as my Aunt and Uncle's cabin.  Last year they had a notice posted in their door that said a bear had been spotted near their cabin and they needed to take precautions.  Crazy!  Needless to say, we were a little hesitant to spend too much time outside.  R-Jay had to go out after dark a couple times and he came running in all freaked out. He's so cute.

Addison is adorable of course!

These babies were also adorable!

Part of that same trail.

All in all it was a fun trip.  Anyone who has small kids knows that a vacation with kids is not really a vacation.  It's just like being at home only harder because you are in a different place.  We had fun though.  We played games, watched movies, ate yummy food, saw beautiful areas.  We are going back the middle of June for an entire week.  Fun!
