THREE WEEKS AWAY AND FAMILY

WOW, what a whirlwind the last three plus weeks, spent in the most glorious way with my family, (even adding one more.)
Our first week was spent in beautiful Meeteetse, Wyoming. The smallest of small towns in Northwestern Wyoming. A true town with only 3 corners marking its center, the only 'grocery store' was in the one gas station.  However, its charm overflowed in this small town, wooden side walks, a chocalatier shop and a 'antique' store that could keep one in town for a month.

Our cabin of 4 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms, 2 great rooms, huge kitchen and a porch no one wanted to leave, the view was AMAZING! 
We cooked big meals, all taking turns cooking and cleaning, worked on puzzles, played with the littles, celebrated a birthday, (Jason), star gazed, and FISHED. We are a crew that needs to be near trout streams. Two fly fished for the first time and I think we may have hooked them.



Forgot candles for the ice cream cake, so a scented candle had to due.



Family photo minus Betty, she refused to be in photo. ( a picture I am sure she will use later in therapy, 'see, I'm not in any family pictures, I know I was adopted')





Erin and her first catch


Amazing sun sets


Yellowstone Canyon



Erin and her 'forever love'

So much more to talk about with more pictures over the next week or so, but for now I have laundry that is going to take  a week to get through and unpacking with lots of sorting.

The photos say it all - what a great time you must have had with all your family. I have never heard of that town in Wyoming but I'm going to keep it in mind.

Looks like it was a wonderful time!

What a great time away with your family!!! :-)
And that is the most beautiful of Wyoming's "four corners" for sure!!! (When I was at the University of Wyoming, one of my sorority sisters was actually from Meeteetse!)
