Our First Overnight Stay at YNP

Despite all the times we have been to Yellowstone, we have never stayed overnight - until this past weekend. It was great waking up in the Park! We had a cookout (always an adventure) the night before and stayed at the Old Faithful Lodge (not to be confused with the Old Faithful Inn). We took a hike in the morning to the "Solitary Geyser" and saw a few animals throughout the weekend, including a couple of bald eagles. We are planning a return trip next month, but will stay in a different part of the Park. It is one of the reasons we love living where we do!

First Haircut

Nina had her first haircut on Monday (with Mom). She did great! She sat in the booster seat and held Mama's hand. she didn't cry but was a little curious about the scissors. She sat still long enough to get a trim. Hopefully we can start getting haircuts on a more regular basis.

Festival Fun

Nina went to her first festival last Saturday (the kids run was part of the festival). There were lots of kids activities, that we never knew about since we didn't have kids before, and lots of good food. She hada chocolate covered banana (yum!) and enjoyed hammering and painting a beautiful wood creation, blowing bubbles, making a picture and a magnet. That was about all we had time for as she fell asleep in our arms!

First Race

If you know Tim at all you know it wouldn't be long before Nina ran in her first race. Last Saturday she ran in a 1K kids run in town. While she spent most of the race being carried by Daddy, she did manage to run long enough for us to get a couple pictures.
