The rest of the week was jam packed. Did I mention that the Dehaven’s came to visit? They always bring the fun. And Jeff shared his pictures too!
We rodeo’d in Livingston…
Which lead to a lot of this….
Do you see the fish right in front of Baylor?!
And after taking a year off from our last Yellowstone Park visit, we again braved the winding roads with all 7 of us. This trip went far better and we even made it all the way to Old Faithful without murdering each other and only one person vomiting. Success!

The amazing Grand Prismatics
I’m so bummed – the colors of the pools are amazing – but it was barely 32 degrees and so the steam made it hard to see.
A tourist died earlier this year jumping into one of these pools. It’s so hot, by the next morning, they could only find a few bones….
We also got to see the Beehive Geyser. It’s less predictable than Old Faithful, erupts for a shorter period of time but is as intense. Plus you can get a lot closer!
And the Old Faithful Lodge was fantastic. At 112 years old, it’s seen some amazing history. Also I’m sure it’s haunted.
And it wouldn’t be Montana without visiting the Long’s for some horseback riding lessons. The girl’s favorite, Duke, was donated to a school to be a therapy horse. They get reports once in awhile about how happy he is to be ridden every day! Thankfully the ladies were happy to give Heidi a try – and they now have a new favorite.
Auggie is still not sure he’s a fan

And we drove kids and a dog around in a gater. While taking selfies. This looks safe, right?
