Birthday Getaway

The 4th of July is my birthday. This year I requested that we get away for the weekend if The Prairie Daddy was willing. I wanted to spend the weekend in Yellowstone if it worked out. A couple weeks before the big weekend I was able to book one of the last two rooms in the park. We actually got a cabin and the Lake Lodge.

It was a wonderful Saturday and Sunday with my boys. We enjoyed the drive, the scenery and the wildlife. We were spoiled on Saturday with seeing 10 bears and a moose cow and calf.

Here was one of the black bears we watched

And here is a grizzly sow with THREE cubs! What a treat!

On Sunday, on my birthday, we had a wonderful brunch, including lox and bagels and blueberry cheese blintzes, at the Lake Hotel. It was heavenly. From there we ventured to Old Faithful and after waiting a little while the crowd of about 500 people was really excited that it faithfully went off.
