The Trouble Makers Take Yellowstone!

Kelsey named the three cousins, Ava, Ethan, and Jack, the Trouble Makers.  They rode in one car with Max and Kelsey, while all the rest of us non-trouble makers rode in our car.

We all went to Yellowstone.  For Vinny it was a first so we just had to show him all the highlights we could cram into one short day.

We ate lunch with buffalos

 Last but not least Vinny and Max had to pass the man-test by jumping into the Firehole rapids in the cold rain.  The water was much warmer than the air and they had to go on our sketchy directions because none of the rest of us would go in due to the cold.  Vinny had to do it by braille.

We finished up the day with dinner at the Geyser Grill in West Yellowstone.  Great service, great sandwiches.  A good day was had by all.
