Last week, Ethan picked out a book on Wyoming from the library. He was so excited to look inside and read about all the places we ventured on our adventure this past summer. So, I thought that now would be a good time to finish this blog post. With things getting super busy at the beginning of the school year, I almost forgot about this one! Oops! You can read about the first half of our adventure over here.
left off with us leaving Devil's Tower. From there we headed to my
Grandma's house is Worland. To get there we had to drive through some
of the most beautiful areas. Wyoming is so much more than grassy
prairies and filled with diverse rock formations and beautiful mountain
ranges. This day of driving was a long day, filled with roadside peeing
(thank goodness for having boys!), and car activities. When we reached
Powder Pass, we got out to play for a few minutes. There was still
snow up there and the kids came really close to running and playing in
it before we continued on our trek.
next morning, we woke up super early to head to the Old Faithful Inn
for breakfast and see Old Faithful go off. It was beautiful and we had
fun. The food and service were not that great, so I would only
recommend eating there to say you did. The kids had a blast exploring
the area and going to the second floor balcony. My favorite part was
Weston screaming, "It's Amazing!"
outside of town.
Someday, Jon and I are going to go back without the kids and stay in
their cute tiny cabins! We even were able to add a moose to our animal
decided to not have Ethan do the Jr. Ranger program here, because we
didn't spend a lot of time in the park. The one place I knew I wanted
to show Jon was this church that sits just inside the park, not far from
Jackson Hole. The church faces the Grand Tetons and all I can think of
is singing praises to God while looking up at this large, majestic
mountains. It is utterly breathtaking! How lucky those early settlers
were to be able to attend church here each week.
explored what we could and then headed into town to set up camp, rest,
and head to dinner at the Circle J Ranch. This was my second time and I
was so glad that the kids were old enough to enjoy it. Weston was a
little restless, but it had been a long day and he was tired. Ethan
laughed at the jokes and enjoyed the music and the food!
next day, we spent some time shopping and eating some local fare. My
favorite store is this amazing little shop of handmade goodness, called Made. So many super fun things!
