Last Chance to see Old Faithful

The roads to Old Faithful in Yellowstone closed for the winter on Nov. 2nd- 8 .a.m. So I took the soon-to-be Grandkids down on Sunday afternoon, after church of course....

Here is Ebin at Yellowstone Lake. He had never seen a geyser in his whole life, in person. I couldn't have that could I? So we dashed over to the other end of the park to get to Old Faithful before it got dark.

We made it just in time. We saw the last eruption of Old Faithful before sundown. It was about 5:15 p.m. Then the roads would be closed to cars until next Spring 2010. As you can see, Rhiannon and Ebin still were enjoying the effects of Halloween from the day before.

Thumbs up as we watch Old Faithful blow its top

And then of course, a herd of Buffalo decided to camp on the road to get out. We sat for about 10 minutes until they decided it was time to move.
We had a great day in Yellowstone. I can't wait to take them again next year, when we have more time to see the waterfalls, mud pots, and maybe a bear....

Rhiannon is 5

We got to go to Rhiannon's 5th Birthday party. Lacey planned it and she did such a good job. Rhiannon is going to be my granddaughter next year when Lacey marries Chris.

Pure joy in getting a Tinkerbell doll

Both my new grandchildren-to-be... Ebin and Rhiannon

Page got her lots of dress up clothes. Rhiannon is into princesses at the moment

Is this an awesome Princess cake?

Halloween Fun

I dressed up as Pharoah at work and came in second place in the costume contest

Lacey was a Tigress

Don't we look great?
