After Independence Rock we drove up to Grand Teton National Park. Bryson got his first highway driving experience - he drove for 2.5 hours! We arrived at our campsite and got set up - Brandon and Tamsin met us later that evening. I had to get in the camping mode...at first these feet made me really disgusted:
Grannie and Grandpa came to our site for dinner - the boys are playing in this picture, not making faces at Grannie...haha:
It rained ALL night that night - it sounded really cool inside the tent, but I was a little worried that we were going to wake up soaked! The boys just cuddled into their sleeping bags and stayed warm the whole night and our tent kept us dry. In the morning, Brandon and Tamsin made hot chocolate and Parker guzzled as much as his little tummy could hold.
Then Brandon taught him to use a hatchet....lovely:
We decided to go canoing at Colter Bay. The views were breathtaking:
Brandon decided to take both boys in the canoe - I was sure they were going to flip because the boys have zero balance, but he did a good job keeping them even. Look how far the front end of the canoe is out of the water! I guess Landon's weight doesn't quite stack up to Parker and Brandon :)
We pulled ashore on a little beach to let the boys through rocks. They even waded into the freezing water - I don't think kids feel the cold when they're having fun!
Good thing we wore swimsuit bottoms:
Bryson and Brandon started throwing the big rocks - Landon and Parker were amazed at the big splashes:
The water was so clean and beautiful:
On the way back we decided to have Bryson go in Brandon's canoe to even things out. Parker just wanted to be dipped in the water:
Tamsin and I ALMOST beat the boys back to the dock. We totally would have won the race had we not pulled into the wrong place at first! You boys were lucky this time....
