Not quite camping....

We spent our Memorial day weekend in the Yellowstone area. Our first family trip since California last summer. Being a beach loving gal you wouldn't think YellowStone would be my first choice for a family vacation. Superman asked me to plan something for our family to do and when my sister Wendy suggested we split a cabin in Island Park (an hour south of YS) it sounded so fun I couldn't resist.
So we packed up our truck on Friday and started driving North. It took FOREVER to get to our destination, lol! First we needed to drive to Logan to drop off our car (which Superman was driving, our boys with him) so we could drop it off to his sister Stephanie. Once there we stretched our legs for a minute had a bathroom break and then we all climbed into the truck to finish the drive to the cabin.
This part seemed to drag on forever. With the kids fighting and picking on each other, I finally couldn't listen to anymore of their whining so I put in my earbuds and listened to my music while reading my book.
We made it to the cabin in one piece by nine-thirty that night.
I was so excited, even though it was freezing cold and snowing! Lol!!! With the pine trees and the cabin the snow just worked :)
The cabin we stayed in was really nice with comfy cozy beds for everyone, showers, a kitchen, and a washer/dryer.
We got our truck unloaded, very grateful that I'd thought to put all our
duffle bags and stuff into plastic bags to keep them from getting wet on the drive. We got our kids to bed, grateful for the big comfy bed they had in their own room. Then Superman and I finally went to bed excited to go see the sights in YellowStone come Saturday morning.
