Yellowstone Days 2&3

The weather turned cold...and wet. This meant that we couldn't do much hiking and instead had to do a lot of driving. One day, we spent almost eight hours in the car, driving the loop, looking for animals, and getting out whenever the sun popped out for a few moments. We saw the temperature drop as low as 37 degrees in mid-morning. Brrrr! Animal watching was fun, though! All in all, we saw bison, a wolf, elk, mule deer, a baby bear, a mama moose, osprey, eagles, and more. The cold and wet was a little disappointing, but it was still fun and we had some great laughs, including watching Jason cook grilled cheese sandwiches in the pouring rain while we all stayed huddled in the car! grilled cheese ©Janet Phillips_august30_2014_web-2 ©Janet Phillips_august30_2014_web-3 ©Janet Phillips_august30_2014_web-6 ©Janet Phillips_august30_2014_web-9 ©Janet Phillips_august30_2014_web-13 ©Janet Phillips_august30_2014_web-15 ©Janet Phillips_august30_2014_web-18 ©Janet Phillips_august30_2014_web-21 ©Janet Phillips_august30_2014_web-26 ©Janet Phillips_august30_2014_web-30 ©Janet Phillips_august30_2014_web-32 ©Janet Phillips_august30_2014_web-39 ©Janet Phillips_august30_2014_web-40 ©Janet Phillips_august30_2014_web-41 ©Janet Phillips_august31_2014_web-1 ©Janet Phillips_august31_2014_web-2 ©Janet Phillips_august31_2014_web-5 ©Janet Phillips_august31_2014_web-6 ©Janet Phillips_august31_2014_web-7 ©Janet Phillips_august31_2014_web-12 ©Janet Phillips_august31_2014_web-15 ©Janet Phillips_august31_2014_web-18 ©Janet Phillips_august31_2014_web-20 ©Janet Phillips_august31_2014_web-21 ©Janet Phillips_august31_2014_web-23 ©Janet Phillips_august31_2014_web-26 ©Janet Phillips_august31_2014_web-27 ©Janet Phillips_august31_2014_web-29 ©Janet Phillips_august31_2014_web-30 ©Janet Phillips_august31_2014_web-34 ©Janet Phillips_august31_2014_web-36 ©Janet Phillips_august31_2014_web-39 ©Janet Phillips_august31_2014_web-42

The kids were told that they could pick out one souvenir, with a maximum price of $10. Bethany picked a pink lollipop :)
