Snowmobiling in Yellowstone

We were totally blessed to be able to have Jared's parents come out this past weekend. We haven't really seen them since last Christmas, so we were so excited! We worked hard all week to get ahead on school and work, and they got in early Friday morning. That afternoon we took of for a weekend of adventure!
We headed over to West Yellowstone, and stayed in the Windham resort. That night we had an awesome dinner and played games and relaxed.
Saturday we got up early, got all bundled up and headed around the corner to a Yellowstone tour company and rented snowmobiles! Holy cow it was so fun. We had all these special snow clothes to make sure we didn't get cold, and we rode with our significant others (Dwayne with Sarah, Ethan with Kaytlin, and of course me with Jared.)
Then we were off! Basically we went all the way to old faithful( about 32 miles), making a lot of stops to see animals and cool features, then ate at old faithful, then headed back. It was totally exhausting, and we were gone all day, but I loved it! I really preferred Jared to drive. I drove probably 1/3 of the time, but for those of you who have never driven a snowmobile, sometimes they don't go the way you steer them to go, and that was not my favorite, I had fun, but I had way more fun when Jared drove and I sat on the back seeing everything and taking pictures and just relaxing!
We saw a few coyotes, bald eagles, trumpet swans, elk, and buffalo. Oh it was just so gorgeous!
When we finally all got back at like 7, we ate dinner, and Jared and I took a two hour nap! Then, rejuvenated, we all played games and watched movied until about 2 in the morning, it was so great.
Sunday morning we woke up and headed back home, then the boys took off to the gun show in Idaho Falls, and Sarah and I hung out at home (Vampire Diaries may or may not have been discussed...Vanessa we missed you!!) Then that night we headed to Aunt Jean's in Rigby for dinner.
It was so great to have them here and we were sad to see them go, but it was so nice of them to take us on this awesome trip, and hopefully we will see much more of them later this year when we get out or Rexburg!
Here are the pictures from this awesome trip we will remember forever!
