First visit to Yellowstone

I’m really behind on posting anything, so trying to catch up a little. Over Father’s day weekend we drove up to Idaho and spent a night at my dad’s house and went to Yellowstone on Saturday afternoon. It was the boys (and Cody’s) first visit to Yellowstone. We only spent one afternoon in the park and decided to make the most of it and head straight for Old Faithful. The boys were more impressed with a stop on the walkway.

I have no idea what used to be here, but the boys thought it was the best thing ever.

They also held hands and circled around it before taking turns being king of the hill.

Best group shot we got, at least Andrew is smiling and looking near the camera.

We waiting, not very patiently, for Old Faithful to erupt. There were a few false starts before that got the boys attention.

Right as Old Faithful started going off a couple got up off the bench and stood directly in front of us and the boys, so we didn’t take any pictures. After the crowds cleared out a bit we posed a couple shots.

After the geyser we had a nice picnic and the boys were so ready for a nap. Since this was Cody’s first visit to the park he also wanted to see the prismatic pool. The boys crashed in the van while Cody made the short hike up the the pool while they were sleeping.

We headed home that night, but can’t wait to go camping in Yellowstone this summer. I can’t wait for Cody and the boys to see the upper and lower falls.
