|Andy's freshman football game. They lost 34-0, but the view as we watched the game was amazing!|
|We stayed and watched the varsity play, they lost as well. BYU also lost this weekend, so it wasn't a great football weekend!|
We didn't want to drive back to Worland Friday night in the dark and hit a deer or other animal, so we decided to stay the night. We drove up in the mountains a ways and stopped at a RV site. We had two cars, since Brian had been down in Utah for a week, so we slept in the car and the van. Apparently it's against the law in Teton county to sleep in a tent, and it's not because of the bears, because they let us sleep out in the open! Didn't make a lot of sense to me. Brian and I slept outside, Andy and Peter slept in the little car and Emma, Eric, and Lucy each slept on a bench in the van. I lay awake until nearly 1:00am! I was freezing and I kept hearing the Elk bugling to each other which was freaking me out, they sounded so close! So I finally told Brian I was going to sleep in the van. I kicked Eric out of the bench and he slept on the floor of the van and I took his bench. Brian tried to sleep on the drivers side seat for awhile and then moved to the floor in the back of the van. Needless to say it wasn't the best night's sleep!

|Lucy's many funny faces|
We pulled out and decided to drive home the long way through the Tetons and Yellowstone. I immediately fell in love with the Tetons! Wow, it's beautiful! An added bonus was it was one of the "free" days for the national parks and we got into both parks with no charge!
|Great picture of Brian and Lucy in Yellowstone|
|One of the craters, the wind was blowing really hard and the steam would engulf you as you walked passed.|
|Emma at the Old Faithful site with Peter photo bombing!|

|All of us minus Brian who's taking the picture|
It was incredibly windy in the park and as we watched Old Faithful go off the wind blew the stinky water straight onto us! Emma was complaining that we smelled like Thermopolis!
We saw lots and lots of buffalo. Toward the east entrance of the park as we were leaving there was a mama grizzly and her baby cub! It was a lovely day! We made it home in time to catch the last half of the General Women's Meeting.
It was a lot of driving in three days time, but all worth it!
