After we left Rexburg, we made our way up to Island Park. We made a few stops along the way.
One of those stops was to Upper and Lower Mesa Falls. I love it up here. It is so pretty and the views are breathtaking!
As we entered Island Park, we stopped at Big Springs. The water here is so clear (and cold!)
Kelly had to take each child and hang them upside down and pretend to drop them in the water. Of course, this was a fun game to them!
You can't come all this way and not spend some time in Yellowstone! We had a great day there and saw lots of neat things.
One of my favorite parts of Yellowstone are the waterfalls. We had campfires and S'mores (as Carson is so kindly showing us with his chocolate grin!)
Our cabin also came equipped with a hot tub. This was sure a fun treat! Although the kids just thought it was a small swimming pool. We had to remind them that hot tubs were for sitting and relaxing!
On our last night we went to The Mountain Vue Ranch. It was in the most beautiful location, just off Henry's Lake.
They put on a little rodeo, which the kids are down participating in some activity in this photo
After the rodeo, we had the best dutch oven dinner ever! Chicken, steak, beans, potatoes, homemade rolls, and peach cobbler for desert. YUM!
This was the view we enjoyed while we ate.
At one point during dinner, they let the horses out of the stable and they all went running through the field.
After dinner we sang songs and did some line dancing. Katelyn especially loved the dancing. It was such a great way to end our vacation!
So, that's the end! What a great time we had. It was such a beautiful and relaxing place to spend some time together!
