Sweet Summer Travels....

Grand Tetons

Why does summer always have to go by so fast?  I guess time does fly when you're having fun! And we certainly had a lot of that over the past couple months.  I simply can't stop thinking about our sweet family road trip.  We visited with family and friends in Utah. We drove from Sunny Southern California up to Jackson Hole, Wyoming and toured Yellowstone National Park.

We saw so much gorgeous, stunning scenery.  The sky. I loved the sky.  It was always clear blue with puffy white clouds.  I couldn't get over how outstanding it all was.  It. Was. Breathtaking. During this trip, I realized just how lucky I am to live in the Western portion of the US where there is so much beautiful topography to experience and explore!  The kids loved it! I must add that they were absolute angels the entire trip. And that was truly wonderful since we spent a lot of time together in our sweet Honda Pilot~2,000 miles of togetherness to be exact! When we pulled back into our driveway after a week packed full of fun memories, we all felt closer to one another and grateful for the love our family shares. It was a trip we all needed. Plus, it was the perfect way to end our summer. It was priceless

Here's a sneak peak at some of what we saw...I am going to post the rest of the photos from our trip on our family website at

Old Faithful being Faithful

Eric & Katie hiked all the way down the side of this canyon to get a good look at this beautiful waterfall!

Megan loved watching movies during the long car rides

I have to say, that after such a sweet, successful road trip there are definitely more in our future.  I am excited and look forward to each of them!

Seeing your Yellowstone pictures reminded me that I need to post mine. We were there this summer also- my daughter worked at a dude ranch in Jackson Hole during her summer break. I just found your blog tonight- you have a beautiful family!
