Yellowstone

Poor me.

I had to endure a miserable weekend. I suppose someone had to do it.

Todd and I were forced to visit Yellowstone without our children and stay in this really hideous cabin.


From this view, it's difficult to notice the fireplace and jetted tub. Misery!











Pretty awful. I'm surprised they're still in business.










Then - we were made to endure really horrible scenic views like these:


























As if that wasn't enough, we had to view wildlife in abundance.






Like Buffalo













And elk









And a bald eagle.













And a grizzly.









Okay - all kidding aside - this was an incredible weekend! Seeing a grizzly in the wild was beyond our wildest imagination. The reason the picture is so fuzzy is because Todd and I were so excited that we couldn't hold still long enough to take a decent shot. Now we know why pictures of Elvis and Bigfoot are always blurry! Seriously, we were bumbling nerds.

We had incidents this weekend, as usual, because we somehow attract strange things everywhere we go!

Such as:

*The poor gentleman that had a heart attack in the booth across from us while we were eating dinner. The ambulance came and whisked him off. Unfortunately, I have no idea how it turned out.

*The straw that was jammed into the roof of my mouth because I forgot to take it out of my mouth while getting into the car. Yeah, that was fun.

*The disgusting motel we checked into (then immediately checked out of) to save a few bucks. WOW - I have never seen anything like it....and I'm not a picky girl!

Incidents aside, this was an awesome weekend.

Hey Todd - let's go again!

I love that place, I'm quite jealous. I'm totally going there again as soon park rangers drop their lawsuit against me.

Mom - I thought your lawsuit was because of the incident that involved the toothless mime. Hmm. Maybe this is something new.
