Our first day in Yellowstone, the ten of us took a (protracted) tour of the park's lower loop in a big ol' funky bus. It was a great way to get oriented with our new surroundings, but it was looong... which was hard on the kids at points. We had plenty of opportunities to jump on and off, but not much time to dig down and explore or take a hike. The quote of the day came from my sister, a doctor, who had me in stitches when she said, "With the hotel's fiber-less buffet, and all this sitting, it's no wonder America is constipated."
The highlight of our tour, and every day so far, is seeing buffalo. We saw A LOT on our bus tour! We also got super lucky and had one brave guy walk down the road, right past us. Tiny Buns was trilled to view it from the safety of our bus.
One of our stops was *Artists Point* in Yellowstone's *Grand Canyon*. Absolutely gorgeous! The view made me wish my mom was with us as I know she would have loved to sketch it.
We are having fun putting our new instant camera to use for the kid's travel journals. More on their daily creations coming up.
