My parents & my brother & his family flew into town on Wednesday. Thursday morning the boys took off for a fishing trip while I took my mom, sister-in-law and neice & nephew down to Jackson Hole, WY for a girls only (minus Ben, but since he's not even one, he doesn't count) tri
We took off early Thursday morning, but when traveling with two little ones even the easiest of trips takes a little time. We finally made it to Jackson later that evening & checked into our motel.
After a good nights sleep, it was time to get out on the town as we only had 1 full day to spend in Jackson. After breakfast we toured the town for a little shopping. Next I took Emily to the Elk Conservatory Visitor Center to earn her Junior Blue Goose Ranger Badge (see a previous post of mine from back in November). She passed w/ flying colors and we were down the trail to play around in the Grand Teton National Park.
The herd of Bison completely surrounded our car. Mom was having flashbacks on an earlier vacation & was trying to remain calm (remember that one Kristen?!). Lola & I were snapping pictures as the bison stared us down & tried to figure out what we were doing there. Emily was most concerned for their safety, as they didn't look both ways before crossing the road (cars were starting to pile up all around us at this point). We stayed as long as we had to since they had our car surrounded & then took off for dinner.
When morning came we packed up the card & said our goodbyes to Jackson & the Tetons. It was time to tour Yellowstone.
