- While I knew it wouldn't be cheap, I thought with a little planning we would be able to afford it.
- My boys loved Maine. So why wouldn't they love visiting one of the most famous US national parks where fishing and wildlife are main attractions?
- Wildlife and nature photography opportunities galore!
So, when Ken asked me what I thought we should do for this year's family vacation, I voted for Yellowstone. I don't regret it. In fact, I think it was money well spent because, friends, this was a stunningly beautiful trip. It was also two weeks of family time with my favorite people.
I think the idea of spending this many days alone with just each other for company was a little daunting for my boys. In fact, they were downright skeptical of any fun being had without having friends along for the trip. The idea of spending two weeks with just each other and mom and dad was not their idea of a good time. At least, not initially.
Here are some of my favorite wildlife pictures we captured on Day 1 in Yellowstone. Enjoy!
