They stayed with us for a week. Bill was lucky enough to only have to work 1 night and got the rest of the time off to spend with us. I think I am going to break this post up into 2-3 different parts otherwise it will be just way too long.
So here is what we did the first couple days......
We had a Grizzly Bear Encounter
They were very cute. But I am glad I didn't run in to them out in the wild.
Some good shots of the kids......
It was windy and they were freezing
Jessie has now grown taller than Shellise who is 5'8
I think he will be well over 6 feet tall soon.
Jessie - 14 yrs
We also took Dad to the Vietnam Wall War Memorial. He served in Vietnam, had a near brush with death there, and does not like to talk much about his experience during the war. It is so hard to see all the many thousands of names of men who died during that war. It's very humbling. I wish I had taken a picture of my Dad at the wall, but I didn't. This one is from the Memorial Day service.
On Sunday after church we took a drive up to Hylite Canyon reservoir where we had planned on roasting some brat's, hang out at the resevoir and maybe do a little fishing or go on a short hike. But the weather decided not to cooperate. As soon as we got there and were getting the fire started, the sky let loose and it began pouring rain. We hung out there in hopes it would stop after a little while, but it didn't so we headed back home. We ended up just watching movies that night.
The weather was kind of on and off for us all week. There were periods of rain and cold and periods where the sun came out and it warmed up. We were still able to do most everything we wanted to do. The next post will include our trips to yellowstone and ghost towns.
