Wandering around town. . .

Dinner at an awesome restaurant in town  – LOCAL. Super delicious buffalo tartare and a pasta dish with elk and buffalo sausage. Big thanks to Peggy and Brian for watching Luke while we went out . .. we are returning the favor tonight and watching their 3! Wish us luck. Winking smile

My kind of vacation!

We woke up this morning to a fresh blanket of snow. . .

And then we went to the National Elk Refuge. Hundreds of elk just hanging out.

Luke was more interested in the wagon wheels than the elk!

And about halfway thru decided it was nap time!

And after that, I spend 30 minutes at the local pharmacy trying to get ear drops for Luke’s latest ear infection. . . only to find out that they don’t have the ear drops we need in this town. . . but thankfully, they can get them by tomorrow!

And now we are hanging out in the main lodge, using the internet and chatting.

Heading out to a water park pretty soon. . . and planning on some hiking tomorrow!

  2. This vacation looks so cozy, really. We were just complaining that there are so many signs around asking us to be careful of elk on the roads but we haven’t seen any!
    Aren’t they heavy when they fall asleep? But so sweet! πŸ™‚
