We love long family car rides! Usually we drive to Spokane every summer and make the drive in about 11 hours. We make pretty good time. This year we broke up the drive over two days by stopping in Yellowstone for a couple days and a night.
Nine years ago we took went there when Cannon was a new baby.
Now at this point we'd been waiting a while. We were getting restless... and silly. Shortly before Old Faithful went off, I jokingly dared the children to yell and scream celebratory things when the geyser went off. Things like, "YES! I CAN'T BELIEVE IT HAPPENED! DO YOU GUYS SEE THIS?
Also, I sort of thought more people would scream and cheer. It was pretty deadly silent. Except that all the people sitting around us will have my charming daughter Bethany's shrill voice screaming on their recording of this miracle of nature. Live and learn.
