The day after we arrived at our pretty cabin, we drove into Yellowstone to see some of the hot pots, natural geysers, and bacteria pools. And now here are endless photos of our day.
I loved all the colors! I've never seen bacteria as pretty/cool as this.
We ran across some grazing Elk
That cute thing loves her cute daddy.
This geyser just happened to be erupting while we were there. It was really cool to see.
As usual, Livy was her darling self and charmed all that passed. She would wave at everyone as we passed, but only Asians would wave back, which I thought was really sweet. I found it endearing that several people wanted to take her picture. One guy even tried to do so without me knowing as he slyly walked by; however, he had an SLR camera and I could absolutely hear the click of the shutter as he aimed that camera directly at her and clicked. It was funny, and I loved the attention she was getting with her floppy hat.
In the photo below you can see the water starting to bubble. I thought it was fascinating to think that this steam and heat was escaping from deep inside the earth. I'm a nerd.
As we were driving from one set of pools and geysers to the next, this buffalo crossed the street literally right in front of our truck. We got a pretty cool video of it and Brady, his dad, and Haylee jumped out of the car to get some photos. They got a lot closer than this (as you can see in the photo two posts down).

Here's trusty Old Faithful:
I just thought this tree was cool. Apparently Liv didn't agree.
So awesome looking.
Later that night, we put Olivia in the hot tub with Haylee in just her regular diaper (we have a cute video of that too). Her diaper was HUGE afterward. Obviously the diaper would absorb as much water as it possibly could, it was just hilarious to us to see. BTW- not pee all down my shirt and shorts, obviously water from my water baby.
