We recently returned from a Harker family reunion in Idaho -- what a blast! There was about 80 people there and we all stayed in 3 cabins in Island Park. This was a serious upgrade since we usually tent it and we had a great time! All of my siblings were there which was a treat because getting all seven of us together takes serious effort. During our 3 night/2 day stay we went to Yellowstone Park, played lots of games and cards, played softball, relaxed in the hot tub and bonded with the fam through it all!
Here are some nature shots from Yellowstone:Aaron and Finn near a river where we ate lunch. Note Finn's "Harker" onesie...thanks mom!
Aah, wildlife. We saw tons of elk, deer, squirrels and coyotes, but none of da bears. Finn was such a champ and was good the whole day! Here's hopin' those two front teeth grow closer together! Some of the fam at "Artist's Point". This canyon/waterfall is really amazing.
Aaron and I went to "The Brink" where you can stand next to the water as it goes over the falls...this picture doesn't do it justice, it was really cool. Finn's cousin Taj next to one of the hot pots. (Something smudgy got on my camera lens)
While we were walking along the boardwalk, Finn was riding on Aaron's shoulders (one of his FAVORITE things) and kept pointing to him while saying "Dada". We tried to capture it on video:
And what would a trip to Yellowstone be without checking out Old Faithful? In this video, you can see that the water is so hot it turns to vapor almost instantly. Seriously, the earth has some crazy tricks up its sleeve.
Other highlites included nightly campfires, a stellar talent show and surprise bridal shower for my cousin Sheree. Thanks mom and dad for planning such a fantastic event!
