“It is an incalculable added pleasure to any one’s sum of happiness if he or she grows to know, even slightly and imperfectly, how to read and enjoy the wonder-book of nature.” – T. Roosevelt
With that idea in mind … to teach our kids to read and enjoy the wonder-book of nature … we went on a great adventure last week.
A 250 mile road trip to Yellowstone National Park.
Four kids (which means four car seats.)
A rented Suburban.
Way too many snacks (because with four kids, there never seem to be enough snacks).
And more than a little enthusiasm for 13 hours on the road!
“The Park is just a howling wilderness of three thousand square miles, full of all imaginable freaks of a fiery nature.” – R. Kipling
It’s also a good place to find a bench and relax.
Note the lovely glare? It’s true … just because the dude is carrying a really fancy camera, there’s no guarantee he knows how to take a picture 🙂
