Cabin Vacation part 1

Oh Wow!  How do I share all about  2 amazing weeks at the cabin? We had a great time! We went up to the cabin to finish up the bathroom remodel project. (had to have it done by the 4th of July when the whole gang was going to be up there!)   and looking through my pics- I didn't even get pics of the remodel project.  oh well!
We had to do more than just work! Taking a break from the work to go fising.
Took a trip into Yellowstone for an evening picnic and Ranger Program. Bug *attempted* to start the fire without matches.
Then we went to the ampitheater to listen to the Ranger presentation about the stars over Yellowstone.
What happens when these buffalo
decide to come up into THIS ampitheater?!  Excitement- as they made us move to the back, then  out of the area, and into the parking lot,  and into our cars while the Bison march on through.
 What's even more exciting- when they come stampeding back down the side of the benches in the middle of the presentation! (sorry- it was dark- no pic of that!)

Sunday Morning, Ben and Bug headed back home, Ben had to be to work on Monday :( and Bug had Scout Camp.  Pam, Doodle, Roo and I stayed at the cabin. :D it was GREAT! 

With lots of....
(look at that bull's eye!)
more archery
Kite flying
Work projects
Doodle sanded the picnic table and we refinished it.
And Roo painted the log swing.

Of course, what's a cabin trip without a(nother) trip to Yellowstone!?
We watied for an hour for Castle Geyser to go off
It was worth the wait!
Castle is one of our favorites!  It only goes off about every 14 hours, but if you can catch it, it's SO  AMAZING!  It goes off for like 20 minutes, and shoots pretty high, and is much neater than Old Faithful ;) 
Doodle and Roo earned their "Young Scientist Badges" at Old Faithful visitor's Center.  Such cool programs they have for kids!
 On our way back to the cabin- we stopped, and just happened upon Great Fountain Geyser that was set to erupt- (pretty cool! I don't remember ever watching this one before!)
So we pulled out our chairs for a tailgate treat.

More of our adventure to come!
