100

This is my 100th post.
To celebrate my postiness, and the fact that we are back from our 2 week trip to Island Park/Yellowstone, I will be posting lots of pictures (I took 750 - I need to do something with them). I don't expect anyone to look and examine all of them - but I wanted a sense of our summer, for our posterity.

It started out with the annual Brunt Family Reunion - going back to George's Great Grandpa and all his descendants (no - he's not still alive).



the kids enjoyed races and games while the adults had an auction to raise funds for next year. BRILLIANT if you ask me.



treats for the participants



the rodeo at Meadowview Ranch


D,L,M and cousin Weston participated in the chasing down of the calf for it's ribbon

doing some damage with Wilcoxen's Fudge Bars

after 2 weeks - all tuckered out (with the aid of some Melatonin)


I love going to Island Park. It a place that forces me to just BE with the kids, to spend time with them. No other distractions. We saw bears, some closer up than others, moose, eagles, beavers and lots of other animals. Waterfalls, meadows, mountains and got dirty, wet and had an amazing time.
