What a busy summer we've had---so much traveling and so many visitors coming to see us! It has been a great summer, but certainly too short...
Uncle Tom (or "Mom" or "T-Mom"-for little boys who can't quite begin a word with the "tuh" sound just yet) came out earlier this month for a 2-week visit. We had a great trip up to Cody, Wyoming, where we went to a rodeo and stayed at Buffalo Bill's Hotel. Buffalo Bill was quite fond of Benjamin and took his picture with him. Next we went up to Red Lodge, Montana, a first for Benjamin and me. We headed south to Yellowstone National Park where we saw lots of buffalo, as well as a momma & cub black bear and a grizzly bear. Ben really loved all the wildlife.
On our way home we went swimming in the Grand Teton National Park and stopped by Dinosaur National Monument---which, by the way, is not currently accessible, so we had to settle for the dinosaur gift shop one mile outside of the park.
We had a great time on our trip. Benjamin was such a good boy considering he was strapped in his car seat for a 6-day, 1700 mile road trip.
Now we're all (AJ, Ben, and me) off to Massachusetts for Kristy's wedding. We are so excited for a week's vacation and it's AJ and Ben's first time to the east coast---and it'll be Benjamin's first time to the ocean! I can't wait to see him playing in the sand. He's going to have so much fun! We are going to explore some of Boston and then head for 3 nights of camping throughout Cape Cod. Can't wait!!
I'll post more when we get back!
