It's cold up here!

Hello from cold, snowy Montana! The first 45 minutes of our drive was definately the hardest. The roads in Northern Utah were a sheet of ice this morning but after hitting the Idaho border it went much better. The last hour was on blowing and snow packed roads but they didn't bother me nearly as much as the ice.

After arriving in the small town of West Yellowstone we headed over to the IMAX Theater where we saw a documentary on the history and geology of the National Park. It was quite interesting and gave the kids a little taste of what we will hopefully see tomorrow.

Pete's Pizza was the choice for dinner and then back to the hotel for a swim in the warm pool. It's pretty darn cold up here so the pool was fun for the kids.

Our snowcoach arrives to pick us up at 8:45 in the morning so we are all turning in early. The forecast is calling for snow and cold temps tomorrow so we'll have to get up early to start putting on all those layers of clothes that we brought!

Hope you all are having as much fun as we are! Yes, Athena and Eris, you better be enjoying your temporarily empty nests!

Muriel, we waved at you as we went by!

I think I saw you wave as we were sledding down a hill by the freeway! Have fun up there!
