Island Park, ID
The drive only took us about 4 1/2 hours. I was nervous for the drive but it was actually much better than I anticipated. Yay! 2 of the 3 slept in the morning, then we stopped and had lunch in Pocatello, then they were happy and entertained each other for the last 2 hours or so until we got there.
My parents went up on Monday, so they were already there when we arrived at about 4:30 on Wednesday. The pictures are all out of order, so I will just write as I go.
We had a picnic lunch and got back in the car but Jackson was sick. He was just crying and in pain. I ended up holding him in the back of the car, trying to calm him in any way I could. We left the park and stopped at a pharmacy in West Yellowstone. We got him some gas drops. We were told it was probably that or acid reflux. The poor boy. I felt so bad for him. We went straight back to the cabin after he got the medicine. I put him down for a nap when we got to the cabin and when he woke up, he was fine. Luckily it was a quick thing, but he sure was miserable for about an hour and a half.
It was a fun trip. I'm glad my parents let us come join them even though we are with them every day at home! The weather was great. It did rain a bit one night into the next morning, but it didn't ruin any of our plans. It was around 80 in the daytime and that was a nice break from the high 90s and 100s here at home.
