We had a great time in Yellowstone. Vacationing with cousins was great for the kids. There was never a dull moment. We saw lots of wildlife (Elk, Bison, pronghorn deer, etc…). We also saw some very neat natural wonders. I loved seeing all the geysers and the beautiful colors that surrounded them due to the bacteria. There were enormous falls (the upper and lower falls). I think it is the upper falls that is taller than Niagara Falls.
We rented a camper and stayed at a R.V. park. On the way to our camping spot, we missed the turn and ended up taking the long way. At first we were kinda bummed but then we decided to make it a day of touring. We saw so many things that we would had missed if we did not take the longer route. Sometimes there are good things that result from mistakes.
On the way home our car broke down in Geneva Idaho…..about 3 hours from home and 1.5 hours from a repair shop. Tim stayed behind and waited 8 hours for a tow truck. We did not get home until about midnight. The babies, Teagan and Elise, were crying the last 30 minutes of the drive. It was so annoying and heartbreaking at the same time. I could not hold either one. I could only comfort them with my words and holding their hands.
