Howie will be traveling for most of August.
So Saturday we had a little getaway.
(We live within an hour and a half drive from West Yellowstone, Montana and Jackson Hole, Wyoming.
We're pretty lucky.)
We picked up Lynsey and Lexi and drove through Jackson to get to Jenny Lake.
(Lynsey's hubby is in Dallas for three months.
This is the Wyoming side of the Tetons.
This is right on the lake looking up at Teewinot.
This is the "Grand" of the Grand Tetons.
It is such a rugged and stunning display of nature.
The lake was so absolutely beautiful.
Lexi insisted on walking!
"Inna a big gril gramma"("I'm a big girl grandma")
And climbing some more.
(Sometimes it isn't a good thing to be an ER nurse. I'm constantly worrying where the nearest hospital is. WITH GOOD REASON!)
Sometimes she insisted on NOT walking.
No worries, she didn't have to.
"I wuv you grampa."
Sometimes she was held for her own safety. And my sanity.
We stopped and had some lunch.
We made it to Hidden Falls.
"It's wowd gramma" (It's loud grandma.")
We drove into Yellowstone in hopes of seeing one of these little creatures.
It was a good day!
I actually thought passed a blog friend Jody on the trail, but wasn't sure it was her. (We met briefly once for a second.)
When I saw her at the boat dock, I snapped a picture being all NCIS and stuff.
I emailed her and asked if she had been to Jenny Lake that day and if she was wearing a pink shirt.
Shoulda not been shy and said hi.
Me with my oldest with her oldest. Also her only....HINT HINT Lyns!
I wish July could stay for another few months!
