Splash Pad!

Last summer we were introduced to a fun free splash pad about 20 minutes from us. Olivia loved going there, so we are very excited for the warm weather.

Olivia had to bring Ariel along with her.

I just love her polka dot swim suit!

I just thought this photo was typical Sophie, always crawling right up to me to see what I'm doing.

What do you do on a rainy day, you learn how to crawl through a tunnel. Well that's what Sophie learnt to do just recently at least.
On a side note, that is not pee coming out of her, that is her oxygen tubing.

Yellowstone Part 2

I realized that I hadn't finished about our trip to Yellowstone. We really did love it there, and are hoping that next summer we can go again. It is so beautiful. So on our second day into the park we saw bear! We first stopped and looked through a telescope and saw some on a mountain about a mile away. While we were doing that a woman came and told us that about 10 minutes up the road was a grisly momma and two cubs. So we hopped in the car and drove over there. The funny thing about Yellowstone is if you go and you are driving through the park and see a bunch of cars and people with HUGE cameras on the side of the road, you stop. If there are park rangers with them, you get out. The momma bear and cubs were about 400 yards away and the cubs were SO cute. I wish I had a fancy camera with a nice lens so I could get better shots. That's my goal is to go there sometime with a nice camera to get the really good shots. That was probably my highlight from the trip was seeing the cubs. We had such a good time and it was just nice to go away and relax. I'm so glad that my parents have a time share so we can use it, ha ha.

Getting ready to go out for the day.
You can kind of see the cubs right up next to her.

The buffalo were everywhere.
