at the end of july we took a trip to idaho. the kiddies and i plus grandma hopped in her car at 4:30 in the morning and got started on our drive. the drive went pretty smoothly except for bronwyn’s almost constant screaming and a huge blow-out poopy diaper. (which we didn’t catch until it was out of the diaper stinking up the car and bronwyn’s hands all dirty in it. disgusting) well after 15 1/2 hours we arrived and a wonderful time visiting with family for a few days. thisbe and magnus got to try fishing for the first time. sadly no fish.
than we headed up north to yellowstone national park. saw quite a few animals, including these.
this huge dragon fly, (he was about as big as my hand)
and some cool sites
the next morning at 2:30 washington time we started out home again. this time the kids slept almost the whole way. and as long as we had a movie in while bron was awake she didn’t scream. this allowed us to drop a couple of hours off the drive time.
