A mere 6 years ago, our family had the adventure of a lifetime!  We spent 2 weeks in a camper during the prime “autumn foliage” time in the Tetons and Yellowstone Park.  We made so many memories those days and had the best time.    Some pictures from our little point and shoot that we had back then…

We can’t hardly believe it has been 6 years since our last camping experience  there, we are very much overdue if you ask me!

 Friday’s Fences

The Boys Flying…

This summer we had the opportunity to spend 3 days of pure bliss in fellowship with others in our church at Big Sky Bible Camp.  The setting was beautiful, the messages where inspiring and the time spent together was wonderful.  My camera died mid-way through but I did get some pictures of the ropes course…

We had an enjoyable time at Dickey Lake, the kids caught crawdads and minnows, the little kids floated around on inner tubes, Mark and I got to try out the Miller’s kayaks (which was a very bad thing to do because now we have the bug to find some!  : ) and  the big boys found an old rope swing (which was rather disappointing 😦  because it didn’t work very well).

We all came home with a terrible bug too…

Jeep ride around the ranch...

We were able to go for a little ride around the ranch and try out the jeep…now we ‘re al thinking we need one …maybe with a couple of kayaks?!     ;D

Of course the guys volunteered to take the little guys on a ride and to run to the store…

The holiday seemed too short and before we knew it we were headed back home.  We had a wonderful time and are hoping to be able to do it again real soon.
