2014 Family Summer Vacation Part 6: Yellowstone National Park- Wyoming

I don't think I need to say anything more when I talk about Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming other than MAGNIFICENT! It has been a blessing for us to be able to visit the park again. It has been Eight years (8) since my husband and I visited the park on our honeymoon trip. This was a special trip for us and being able to visit the park again this time with our kids is an experience that we will all remember. And I am glad I have some photos to help our kids remember these special times. 

We always want our kids to know about Yellowstone and be able to experience it in person. We have watched old videos of the Yellowstone National Park prior to this trip and we were just excited to go on this vacation. And we did! We surely had a great time during our visit and me and my husband are itching to go back again soon. Or maybe in a couple of years. Or maybe next year. I don't know. We will see. But by this time, we better make sure to make an advanced room reservation so we can stay in the park and not have to drive far to get to our rented room. If you have never been to Yellowstone before and you are planning on taking a summer trip, make sure to book it during the Winter or during the Spring season. Yes, that early because all the rooms, hotels, motels, cabins, RV/campgrounds, and rental homes will be fully booked by then. You don't want to end up pitching up your tent in the middle of the night because we couldn't find any place to stay. Thank goodness for Mr. Police Officer for helping us. 

Anyway, like I said, I don't think I need to say more about it because pretty much everybody knows that when you visit the park, you will never regret the wonderful experience you will get when you visit the Yellowstone National Park. You just have to see it and experience it yourself. Here are some of our photos. 

Next on the blog are more photos of our summer vacation this year and maybe I will share a few photos I took of the Fire Hole Swimming Area (said to be the only swimming hole in the entire park) or maybe some photos of our afternoon experience in Mammoth Hot Springs with a herd of Elk chilling at the park. Stay tuned!

When you are in such a gorgeous place like in Yellowstone, you take advantage of the view and have lunch by the river. Why not? We even saw a couple of deer checking us out while we were having lunch.

And maybe skinny dipping after? No matter how cold the water was, these two water kids couldn't resist the temptation. Had to! And nope! No kids were harmed except just having a great fun.

This Geyser was bubbling and steaming like crazy. I have a short video of this that I will share with you later on.

And while the kids are sleeping in the vehicle, the parents get to play in front of the camera. Yep! Way to embarrassed your kids when they grow up. They will be so proud of mommy and daddy. (LOL)
