Day 2 (part 2) of Yellowstone

Also on Day 2 we saw a black bear! You can tell when there is an animal close by because there will be tons of traffic pulled over trying to get a glimpse of whatever has been sighted. 
 Here is that black bear. He was cute from a distance and we didn't desire to get any closer. :)
 Here is a bridge that we rode across in the Park.
 Proof that we had arrived at Yellowstone! Love every journey with this crew!
Here is the playground at the campground we were at (Yellowstone RV).

Day 2 at Yellowstone

There are so many pictures of Day 2 that I will do two post on our adventures for Day 2. (I don't want to overload one post)
Another beautiful waterfall inside Yellowstone National Park.
 Beautiful flowers on the side of the road at one of the pull off places.
 Just simply gorgeous!
 Our lovely baby girl! Taking a hike.
 Here is middle brother stopping for a picture on our hike.
Finally we see other animals, mountain goats. :-)

Our first two nights at Yellowstone we camped just outside the Northern entrance. We were at the Yellowstone RV Park those nights. That campground had a nice bath house and laundry facilities. Since we were gone for 11 days we tried to stay at a few places that had a place where we could do laundry.

Day 1 at Yellowstone

Our first stop in Yellowstone was Mammoth Hot Springs. This was beautiful! You are going to hear me say that a lot, because there is just so much beauty in God's creation! These first two photos are of Mammoth Hot Springs. There is a strong sulfur smell at the springs, be prepared.

 This picture of the bird is a Magpie. Not a bird you see just anywhere but we saw lots of them at Yellowstone.
 Here is another picture of Mammoth Hot Springs.
 A view from inside Yellowstone. Breathtaking!
 There were little Hot Springs like this one all over the Park.
Here is a waterfall that we stopped at inside the Park. There were lots of little pull off spots for you to stop and view the scenery.
Buffalo were everywhere! Even walking down the middle of the road while we were driving through the Park. The first day or two we were all excited to see the buffalo but by day 3 we were ready to see some of the other animals. :-)

4-H Banquet

In December 2017 our three oldest had a 4-H banquet where they were recognized for their participation in 4-H. All three of them received a pennant and certificate for being involved in the Loud Speakers Club (Public Speaking). Then Isaac and Sarah were inducted into the Tennessee 4-H Honor Club. Very proud of them for all their hard work and dedication. 
 Here is Isaac and Sarah during their induction ceremony.
Next year Timothy will be able to be apart. Very thankful for the opportunities that 4-H has given our children. Isaac and Sarah just competed in the Tennessee Regional 4-H Public Speaking Competition. Sarah received runner up  for 9th grade Western Division. Isaac won in 10th grade Western Division and will compete in State Competition in the spring.

The Scenery Was Awesome!

Here are a few pictures of some of the scenery we saw on our trip to Yellowstone.
We went the end of May 2017 and there was snow on the mountains and ground. It was beautiful!
Everywhere we turned each of us would say "Wow, look at that!" There was so much to see!

Little Bighorn Battlefield National Monument

Our next stop was Little Bighorn Battlefield National Monument in Montana. This was very educational; I believe we all learned something. 
Isn't this view gorgeous?!
We tried to come up with Indian names for us...that was lots of fun! At this stop we were able to watch a short video of a reenactment of the Battle of Little Bighorn. Very glad we were able to make this short but educational stop on our trip.
