A Vacation Reprieve

 This past October the Mr. and I strategized with great detail to GET OUT, GET AWAY, GET FREE from the tethers of home and the supervision of our special needs son.  Our get-a-way was planned a year in advance and took many caring people (care givers) to pull off such a fete.

Old Faithful Geyser
We met up with close friends for five nights at the Old Faithful Inn in Yellowstone National Park two weeks before they closed for the winter season.

To say we had a grand time is an understatement!

A side trip to Grand Teton National Park and a gourmet picnic at this beautiful chapel .... LIFE IS GOOD!

Mrs. Mac,

You and your husband deserved this beautiful well planned vacation.
Thank goodness for dear friends and family to help with your son :-)
One day, I will be able to get out to Yellowstone and the Grand Tetons. My husband always talks about these two parks, and I've seen video footage, and pictures but have never been. I love your pictures, they're beautiful.
