i always find myself here, about a hundred stories but no words to even begin to tell them. i look forward to when we do settle down at the beginning of 2014 to be able to spend some good time writing more about this adventure. in a nutshell, we are so grateful for every single moment we have in this season of life together! it has become easier overall but the traveling is still tough. the nights with restless babies is even tougher. but the kids are just soaking the beauty of this country right up! being outside is the best! and now that we have started school, being in creation and visiting the national parks is such a beautiful motivator for learning (gracie is in first grade, brandon is in pre-k). yellowstone has been absolutely our favorite adventure by far, just so magnificent and humbling. i have too many images from this adventure to even wrap my head around blogging them all. these very few favorites will have to do for now. and don’t forget to watch the video down at the end… i did a short little interview of brandon, nothing fancy, just a random little moment out on the porch between him and i when we were in whitefish, montana.
this was the first thing we saw when we got to wyoming… bridal veil falls in provo, utah… bear lake, on the border of utah and idaho. this was the most glorious sunset we’ve ever seen. jackson hole, wyoming. we had the special treat of staying a few days with my thoughtful clients there in a converted barn! so grateful! the grand teton mountains are there in the background. montpelier, idaho… and this is five minutes into yellowstone national park in wyoming… yellowstone river… these bison were our favorite. yellowstone is donny’s now official happy place. he stopped several times along the way just to breathe it all in. gracie has developed quite a love for photography. i taught her how to use my old 5d and she was our official documentarian of the yellowstone wildlife. i’ll try and post some of her photos soon. they are awesome. old faithful… our campsite was just beside the fishing bridge area of yellowstone and we stopped at this river on our way back one night, only lit by the moonlight. this was the stillwater river near our cabin where we stayed in whitefish, montana.
