Do you have a place that you visited often growing up (besides relatives houses)? My place is Yellowstone National Park. I've been there many times and I never get sick of it. It is so beautiful and incredible! This was the first time we'd been back since Benj and I were dating back in 2005.

We got there right around lunchtime and stopped at a campground to set up lunch. We let Logan run around in the dirt and explore a little bit, making sure he stayed pretty close to the table. My mom and I decided to try to "team up" and get him to sit for two seconds while we tried to feed him. As my mom was holding him, she looked up and gasped, "Oh my!". I look up to see a 2,000 lb BISON literally 5 YARDS away from our table. They tell you to stay 25 yards away for safety. It was minding its own business and casually walked right by, not even glancing at us. I swooped up Logan from my mom and walked a little distance away from it. Motherly instincts kicked in and all I wanted to do was protect Logan. Dad said to not startle it, and luckily it wasn't agressive. Boy, did it give us a scare. We didn't get a picture of it because we were frozen with fear, but here is a picture of Benj and Logan at the table. The bison walked right through that clearing behind them. Here are a few bison we saw right by the road. My family all agrees that the one at the campground was bigger than any of these.
Anyway, it was a great trip and we all really enjoyed the beautiful scenery.

Ah, he is so cute.
So is he. He takes after his dad. :)

Old Faithful never dissappoints. Can you see the rainbow?
I highly recommend going to Yellowstone this time of year!

You know, I've never actually been there. I think Chris and I should make an effort sometime soon. It looks like it's pretty awesome!
