We are back from our trip. There are literally thousands of photos - and i haven't even stolen the ones my mom and dad took on their cameras yet...
Here's a quick recap our the past 3 weeks for the Harms Crew
July 2 - left Saskatoon at 6:40 am, and drove for many many hours and ended up in Livingston, Montana.
July 3 - drove into Yellowstone Park
|From the North Gate|
|Mammoth Hot Springs|
Drove out of Yellowstone Park and stayed in Great Falls, Idaho
July 4 - We spent the day driving down through Utah and stayed overnight in Beaver, UT.
|The Hotel had a pool.|
On our way to Vegas we took about an hour detour off the interstate to visit Vally of Fire state park. It was amazing. but it was crazy hot. We piled the kids out of the van to take a few pictures then jumped back in and kept going. i feel like this park would be an amazing place to visit in the winter months, but not maybe in the beginning of July.

When we finally made it to Vegas (we were staying at the Hard Rock Hotel) it took forever for the hotel room to be ready. But we busied ourselves by checking out all the stuff
|Artoo loved the "big guitar"|
|Artoo's favourite band in the whole wide world is Fitz and the Tantrums - |
he just about lost his mind when he saw this display
|B-rad and i got out to walk the strip while Grandma hung out with the boys in the hotel|

Okay, so - that's about half the trip.... i'll fill you in on the second half next week. ;) otherwise i'll be here all night!!
Weekly Challenge #277: Running 'round in Circles
I had a good little chuckle when i saw that last week's participants were only about 30. Yeah, it was kind of a hard one to do - but kudos to all of you who found a way to move while tangling!!
This week's challenge is much simpler.
Create a string out of circles and tangle!! that's it. You can do overlapping circles, or concentric, or you can fill all your circles with smaller circles.... or something else just as awesome!!
Circles have always been a very relaxing shape for me. And doing the tangles like ennies or caviar or tipple always soothe me, cuz i love drawing circles. I am planning to add my tile as soon as i finish, but i didn't want to keep anyone waiting!
So have a great week!!
