Yellowstone Bear World

So that we'd all be able to stay out West as a family as long as possible Brad was able to arrange it so he could work some days at the Idaho site. While he was working the girls and I made sure to squeeze as much fun as possible in with Grandmas, cousins, and aunts. 

One day we took Grandma Donna to Yellowstone Bear World
It's only about a 10 minute drive from where we lived in Rigby. I was a little hesitant to go and spend so much money but it was worth it. We all had a great time and saw lots and lots of bears.
We drove through the Bear loop 3 different times. 

We went in and checked out the gift shop, baby bears, petting area, and rides.
These's little cubs were SO cute.
Perfect size rides for my crew.
Grandma even joined in on the fun. 
Camille fed some goats
Natalie charmed this deer
Excited to touch a peacock

Measuring up to a Grizzly. We don't think we'd want to make one of these guys mad. 
What a fun day.

June 28th Driggs fireworks show

After getting to Idaho Falls, stopping at Albertson's and Ron and Donna's we all piled back in the car and head to Driggs for the Huntsman Firework show. We met up with Matt and Yvonne and Kaitlyn and Tim. Cousins were excited to see each other and and a great time playing and jumping on Uncles until it finally got dark enough for the fireworks. I even had a chance to talk with an old friend.
 Seriously a gorgeous setting with the Tetons behind  us. Even though we were jet lagged and didn't get "home" to Ron and Donna's until 1 am it was totally worth it.
It was probably the best fireworks show I've ever seen.
