Alexis thinks she is a helicopter
with the help of Dad!

Jordyn couldn't get
enough of her Mom!

Max was all smiles.

Ah ha! I have the pink bear
& the purple star!

But I want the purple star!

Ah ha! I got it!

Oh well, I still have the pink bear!

I want to feel your teeth!

Now I want your cute yellow glasses!

And I want to see!

See my two teeth?

Happy, Happy, Happy, Boy!

We're almost 9 months old!

Seeing the babies at play!

Wonderous Max & his Dad.

Gorgeous Alexis & her Mom!

I REALLY like this Pink Teddy Bear
even if my Dad doesn't!!

Alexis sure is a sweetie pie!

Always looking in wonder!

Today we had two different sets of visitors
from Utah. Barry's sister, Linda, and her
family, and Barry's brother, Bob & his
wife, Joy. Linda was going to Yellowstone
& Bob and Joy were coming back
from Montana! They didn't know
each other would be here
so it was a nice surprise reunion!

Yellowstone 2nd Day Afternoon

We drove to Mammoth Hot Springs
And saw these beautiful formations.

This tree is like many trees at
Mammoth Hot Springs....
overtaken by the
chemicals in the water.

The formation below is called
White Elephant Back Terrace.

This is a Hot Springs Cone.
It used to be a hot springs that
just kept building up and now
it is a hot springs no more.

This elk welcomed us into
Mammoth Hot Springs.

The Bison & their babies just grazing
on the lawn in front of some buildings
in Mammoth Hot Springs.

Chris enjoying watching the babies.

Barry enjoying touring.

Amazing to see these Bison just
roaming all over the grounds.

We saw these Bison a little ways off.
And in the middle were Bull Elk
sticking their horns out.

Just a beautiful scenic picture of Yellowstone.

We came to this Mountain Goat.
He was out on the road and then ran away
behind this wall. I shot up out through the
sun roof to get a picture and all of a sudden
he was just staring at me for quite a while.
I like this picture the best!

Here is the Mountain Goat
scampering around the mountain.

He was a cute little guy!

A rock formation we saw on our way.

All of a sudden we were in the mountains.

And there was a ton of snow.
Look how tall the snow is
off the side of the road!

We enjoyed our tour of Yellowstone.
I didn't realize that you had to drive
through such high mountains!
