Travelling Days

We had some fun the last few days of our trip. The weather was hot and the pool was fantastic. The Bee was not going to risk it though, and we could not convince him to get in. The Babe got to have her first swim though, and it was quite fun. I'm a bit of a chicken when it comes to outdoor pools (too cold) but I could have stayed in there all day! Perfect.

When we headed out, as I mentioned the weather was beautiful but was starting to cool off by the time we hit Salt Lake City. We took the scenic route from there up Logan's pass to Bear Lake and then over to Jackson, Wyoming. It was raining but lush and gorgeous.
Until the snow.
Leaving Jackson we drove through Yellowstone Park, hoping to enjoy some more loveliness. Instead. More SNOW.

Oddly enough, although our trip with the littles was far from perfect (FAR) we had some really fun times. And yes, as the painful moments fade away I find myself almost willing to do it all again. There is something wonderful about traveling that makes me feel expanded. In the best way. And CH and I have high hopes for many family adventures.

So maybe not tomorrow, but check back with me in a few weeks...months?

At least my boys have fun no matter what. They love to be outside and would be happy to stay there all day. I think one of the highlites for them was the 'spinkles' that came on twice a day. A little water and some sunshine goes a long way.

YOu're instilling wonderful lessons and memories into your children by being so brave taking them on the road. Good for you! I often wondered how my parents managed tenting with all of us...but they did...and I was little like E too.
The boys look so grown up in the last pic.
Great colors in your photos.

My parents always took us camping too, even when my sisters were babies. But we weren't all 3 and under!
Still, it seemed like the normal thing to do. No big deal.

I've been using Nichole Van's color pop action lately. I really like the bright summer color vibe.
