each year ben's side of the family ventures up to island park or jackson hole for a little family vacation.
they did this even when they lived in california.
i have been hearing about this infamous island park trips for a while now and this year did not disappoint.
we had a blast!
we played at the lake everyday, went into west yellowstone and yellowstone, had a few campfires, rode four wheelers, played endless games, ate yummy food and laughed a lot.
it was a nice little weekend getaway.
& can't wait for next year.
ok, so this picture does not do "old faithful" justice. in this picture the water looks about a foot high. but it was actually pretty sweet in person.
i had not idea that people came from all over to see something that has been an hour and a half away all along.
we met a family from france and a million asians. crazy.
the only bummer part was that ben and i had to leave the fun a day early so that we could both get back to work.
that was rough.
but thats life.
it was a fun time with our family regardless and we loved it!
i realize that about three quarters of these pictures are just of our nieces and nephews but we can't help it.
we're kind of obsessed with them.
