Wyoming Trip - Lasting Memories

The Elenbaas Wyoming trip was a wonderful family vacation. Besides all the sights we saw, here are some great memories from our time out west.

EVIE TIME: It was awesome being able to spend a whole week with baby Evie. Even though I get to see her every day after work, it was much better being able to spend all day with her. She was a great traveller and never held us back. Here are some of my favorite Evie pictures:
Pahaska family reunion lodge. It was really nice that all 24 of us could stay in one building. The lodge had an excellent family area for games and meals and we enjoyed the nearby scenery as well.
The weather. We enjoyed ideal weather every day with highs in the mid 70s and overnight lows in the 40s. We were rarely cold or hot and the sun was out every day.
Water level. Wyoming had abnormally high snow fall levels over the previous winter and a late spring. Both of those contributed to lots of snow still on the ground and very high river levels. The snake river was running at 20,000 CFS (a 10 year high), considerably faster than its normal 6,000 CFS late in the summer.
Scenery. The backdrop of the Tetons made everything look that much more majestic.New States. We made special trips into both Montana and Idaho, just to say we were there.
High Fives. Ben was in middle-school-annoying-jock stage and felt the need to give a high five for every reason imaginable. He often just stuck up his hand while walking by. He was aptly nicknamed "The Todd" for the whole trip. Here The Todd tries to solicit an unwarranted high five from Derek, who obviously isn't interested.

Just to clarify it was middle-school-annoying-jock-stage and not annoying-middle-school-jock-stage. The one you used is more endearing than the second. Either way, good nick name.

Hah, I love the MSAJS. I love even more that you stated calling him "the Todd."

I'm gonna start handing out high 5's like it's my job!@

When's the next kickball game? Highfive!
