I'll try not to bore you with too many vacation photos. We went to Wyoming, flying into Jackson. This is a photo from a beaver pond showing the Grand Tetons.

Here is a bison, rambling along. He had a little bird trailing him and eating the bugs he was kicking up.

We saw a lot of wildlife: a bull moose (no photos, too far away), elk, mule deer, pronghorn antelope, osprey, bald eagles, kingfishers, hawks, crows/ravens/magpies, pelicans, ground squirrels, chipmunks, long tailed weasel. . . That's all I can think of right now. Luckily we did not see any bears, wolves or coyotes.

We went to Yellowstone as well as Grand Tetons. I know the picture would have been better if the geyser had been going off behind me, but I didn't want to wait around 90 minutes for the next one. Note that I am wearing the jacket I made at knitting camp and I loved it. I can tell I'll get a lot of wear out of it this winter.

Today I'm working on the laundry mountains. Tomorrow I'm hosting a girl scout swimming party, so I've got a lot of work to do. I need to take the kids shopping to get ready for school. There are 3 or 4 back to school parties for the kids, plus orientation and my book club meets this week. Crazy. . .

Hey, that's an awesome old faithful pic.
Glad you guys had a good time.
Back to School parties?
I am really, really glad Jackson never did one of those.
We didn't get to come to Tenn. this summer.
Yakk has a job. Heavens be praised.
His attitude is good right now.
Annette and Greg had a good visit.
Now, I'm working like crazy.
But, like Jak, my attitude improves with activity.
