Big Flowers, Big Bellies, and One Big Mistake

As mentioned HERE, we had a wonderful (seriously, the best) time in Jackson Hole, Wyoming back in July.  The last few days of our trip there were spent in the following fashion:

Visiting the weirdest/not-even-close-to-worth-the-ticket-price museum ever, a.k.a. Ripley's Believe it or Not...

The reviews were bad.  We chose to ignore them.  Lesson learned.

We hung out with a variety of fossils while visiting some ACTUAL museums and fun shops in town square...
After heading back to Teton Village for some yummy food, John and I lay in the grass and relaxed while the kids played.  Seriously, the best I tell you.
Later Macie and I had fun hunting down the biggest flowers we could find...
Or just the prettiest...
We took a ride up the mountain...
Made especially thrilling by John's "bear" sighting...
Wow, I forgot how lovely I looked pregnant.  Moving on.
Our last morning in Jackson we made a final stop at the farmer's market before heading out of town.
It was heaven.
Clearly I couldn't stop taking pictures of the gorgeous food and fresh produce on display.  It was a great morning.
From there we said farewell to Jackson Hole and headed straight to Bear Lake to visit the Brower Clan.
Unfortunately, we could only spend one day and night there, but we packed it full of fun.
There was canoeing...
GIANT snow cones...
And two very large bellies...
The kids had a blast playing in Aunt Denise's backyard with the Brower Boys.
After an entire day in the sun and sand, we let all the exhausted children sleep together in one big room.  The boys were in heaven, Macie opted out.  After such a busy day they somehow had enough stamina to giggle and goof around for hours.  It was so fun to see the kids having such a good time with cousins.

Our Jackson Hole-Bear Lake Combo was the perfect 20-degree-cooler getaway.  It was great to just relax and hang out together with absolutely nothing planned.  We can't wait to repeat the whole thing next year.  In fact, looking at all these pictures actually makes me miss Summer...
...just a little.
