Jackson Hole: On the boat

I decided to go to Jackson Lake with my family at the very last minute. I left Richie behind for a few days. We missed him so much, but at least we got to go to one of the prettiest places on earth. Seriously, anyone who hasn't been here needs to plan a trip.

The whole trip, every where we'd go all I could think was, "How did I come here every year as a child and not appreciate how gorgeous it is?"

Anyways, my family loves boating so lots of the pictures from the trip are on the boat.

Claire singing "wheels on the bus" with Amy. 

 Papa let Claire drive the boat. She was completely terrified and sobbed haha.

Look at that little hand over her little mouth.

Lily thought it was a lot more fun to drive the boat. 

Kate got a chance to drive the boat too. It was potentially the best day of her life. 

Favorite picture from the trip.

Snuggling with mom. Please notice our matching hats. :) Claire might be a little embarrassed in this pic. 

We had great luck with wildlife on this trip. We saw bears, deer, eagles, and this moose. We saw this guy on the shore line and followed him up and down the shoreline for twenty minutes. It was a pretty cool experience. 

Claire being cute. 

Claire and Lily explored the wild with Lily's binoculars. 

We were going on a boat ride one night, and Amy invited a non-english-speaking chinese family on the ride. It was probably the funnest part of the day. They were so amazed by the boat and the scenery. I'm pretty sure they took 1000 photos between the three of them. 

Claire being cute again. 

This is a picture with the moose behind us. I wish you could tell from the picture, but Claire was upset that I made her turn around for the picture. She LOVED following that moose around. The moose is her current favorite animal because of this trip. Every time we see a moose in a book, she says, "Moose. I sawed one. sawed MOOSE!" 

Lily exploring. 

Papa driving the boat. Notice that his hat has scotty dogs on it--very appropriate for someone whose nickname is Scotty Dog. :)

What a cute little family. 

Lily was a champ and went swimming with her Daddy. Keep in mind that this water is glacier run off, so it's super, super cold. She loved it anyways.

Amy and I on the boat. 

Papa and Lily Fishing.

I love this picture where they're looking at each other. 

More pictures to come!
