I once posted that Olivia refers to us as the 3+ Bears.  Papa Oso, Mama Oso, Bebe Oso and Nina Oso.
Now we have a picture to make is official.  

Our hotel room in West Yellowstone, Montana

Lucy and Olivia snuggled up the first night.  They actually slept really well!


Lower Falls at Artist Point in Yellowstone.  Olivia has been posing a lot in photos.

Day 2 with the obligatory picture in front of the sign.

Ed's turn to be in front of the sign

Lucy has been 'cheesy' lately in photos. 

Neat spider web on a bridge.  

West Yellowstone has Buffalo statues all over.  The girls loved to spot them and take pictures.  This one is in front of our hotel.

Grand Teton Mountains on our drive home.

At Old Faithful.  Picture taken by Olivia. 

Lunch by Yellowstone Lake.  

Buffalo along the side of the road.  Olivia was fascinated by the dead buffalo on the first day.

Loved the water lilies.  

Photo by Olivia.  She actually does a really good job!


  1. Oh it looks like you had a lot of fun!! I love seeing photo's of your family Nicol :) That picture of Lucy and Olivia snuggling is simply adorable.

  2. I love the bear family photo. It is so cute! Glad too see the baby backpack in use. :) Looks like it was a fun trip!

  3. the buffalo everywhere is crazy! we went to yellowstone in 2009 for my first time. and i watched a crazy bicyclist bicycle THROUGH the buffalo. don't know how he didn't worry about spooking them and getting trampled. we had one kick our car when it got spooked as we edged through them.
    i hope your vacation was immensely relaxing! :)

  4. love the Montero family of bears!
