We opened an awesome present Christmas morning. You know I love you, since I'm willing to post such an awful picture of myself, just for the sake of documenting. Papa Rex and LeeAnn paid for us to go to Yellowstone Park and go via Snow Coach! Such an incredible gift!
We moved the boys' carseats in the snowcoach and we were on our way!
Family shot! We got great seats, right at the front of the coach.
Someone, please tell these beautiful trumpeter swans that they forgot to fly south for the winter!
Dude, check out my lens. We decided if you're going to go on a once-in-a-lifetime trip to Yellowstone, you might as well pack the goods you need. Which, of course, includes a lens as long as your arm.
Ethan loved getting out to get a closer look at all those Buffalo.
Isn't it amazing they can brush their heads side to side to dig down through the snow to get to the frozen grass? Talk about brain freeze!
We had several stops along the way, none of which I would remember the names of, had I not taken a picture of the name posted.
Poor Lincoln preferred to stay in the coach where it was nice and warm!
So this is what a snow coach is, in case you were wondering. It's basically a bus outfitted with snowmobile tracks instead of tires.
I loved seeing the hot spots all along the way.
But brrrr it was freezing!
I think my favorite parts was seeing what they call the "paint pots." Such gorgeous color.
It was like visiting a different planet.
It was so cold though, it was tempting to want to jump in that 200 degree water.
Lincoln came out for this one, although I'm pretty sure, he would have preferred to stay in the coach.
I love our little family shots along the way.
We saw so much wildlife in the park too. Especially considering the temperatures outside.
We even saw a pair of bald eagles!
Look at that beautiful snow coach.
This buffalo came right up to the coach, I had to put on the macro lens for this shot!
Lincoln was such a trooper through the whole trip. Actually both boys did an amazing job with the long ride through the park.
And of course, we saw Old Faithful.
Although the wintertime version seemed to be much different than the spring geyser I remember from my youth. It ends up being a whole lot of sputtering steam in the winter!
We had such an amazing trip! Thank you Papa Rex and LeeAnn!
