Well, the weekend after Wallowa Lake was spent helping our friends celebrate their sons' birthdays!  Jordan turned 8 and Felix turned 6, and we helped them celebrate Saturday, August 27th.  Fun to watch the kiddos play.....and picture our Baby "K" joining in the celebration next year!

The following weekend was Labor Day weekend (Sept 1-4), and a number of us had made reservations for this log home just outside of Yellowstone in Island Park.  It was a fabulous four day weekend (we left town on Thursday afternoon) with wonderful friends, a GREAT time in Yellowstone, and a b.e.a.u.t.i.f.u.l. log home!

Out of fourteen of us, eleven of us got the "bug" that Devin had gotten from school.  He had since recovered, but we all took our turns experiencing the "joy" of the sick bug.  Ironically, we all felt great on Monday.....not one of us was sick!.......but it was travel home day.........

Aside from feeling sick a day or two each, we all managed to have a great time, and it started what we all have agreed will be an annual event!  Only next year.....NO SICKNESS!!!!!  ;)

Easiest way to share the weekend is through pictures, so here they are...............

                   Detour/Backroads on way to Yellowstone.
Friends that came with us, The Wernette's.

Picking edible berries, according to our biologist friend, Karie.

Aaahhhh......relaxing in the hot tub.......

 Doing the walk around some geysers....
Paige knew I had just gotten sick and said,
"Debbie, I'll hold your hand if you want me to......"
Such a sweet girl.

Me and Paige.

 Me and my honey pie.

 Devin and Grady.

Grand Canyon of Yellowstone.

 Babe and me.

Jeff and Devin.

Geyser Jeff caught "in action" bubbling away.


 Ice cream break with Isabella!
 Geographical Amazements!

    Jayden and his fruit buddy.....

Both of us Feelin' GOOD....on Monday.....the day to travel home.......


We all thought that our Baby "K" would be joining us on this trip, when we planned back in the Winter. Sad that he wasn't there, physically, but he was definitely there in our hearts!  Can't wait to take him along next year!!!!!
Good time.  Good friends.  Good memories!

Gorgeous photos! Looks like you had a wonderful time - except for being sick, of course! Hopefully next year you'll stay healthy AND Baby K will get to go, too! :)
