What I did on my summer vacation...

Much of my vacation was spent enjoying the company of my wonderful family and friends. I doted on daddy, spent time with the cousins and kidcousins and even saw my brother for a short while. I truly had a magnificent time.

I hardly even thought of work, for once (thanks for that, Bobbi--friend and co-worker), and was able to unwind for the first time in I can't remember how long.

I even managed to take a one day trip to Yellowstone Park, but true to form lately I forgot my camera! Thankfully my companion had an old one along so I was able to get a few shots, including this one of an elk and her youngun' wading in the Yellowstone River.


And this one of a buffalo (why, oh why did I forget my freaking camera?).


Here's one my friend insisted on taking. Once again I say, how much weight do I have to lose before I only have one chin? Does anyone know the name of a good plastic surgeon?



Our turbo trip took us to Yellowstone Lake, probably my favorite place of all, where the last three shots were taken.






So there you have it in a nutshell.

I've missed you all and very much look forward to going to your blogs to catch up with what is going on in your lives.

Big hugs and lots of love,

Laurie

Beautiful photos, sounds like a great trip. I'm happy for you that you could really get away from work, both physically and mentally. So healing.

We start vacation next week and I can't wait.

Yellowstone would be a lovely place to spend vacation time. It has, no doubt, healed from the devastating fires a few years back.
I have also been interested in the success of the reintroduction of wolves. Did you do any wolf howling?

I recently read that the grizzly has made a recovery of numbers in Western Montana. This too is good news.

I too enjoyed a vacation trip to Disneyland during last holidays.
