It seems like just yesterday that we moved here. My son was just about to turn one and we enjoyed his second year backpacking around the park every weekend. Now that he’s able to do his own hiking I’m looking forward to our hiking adventures this summer. We celebrated Garrett’s first birthday in the Lamar Valley, but due to erosion at the confluence of the Lamar and Soda Butte Creek, that picnic spot is no longer there. For his fifth birthday we went to West Yellowstone for a birthday dinner and stopped along the Madison to enjoy some lovely golden hour sunlight. We were lucky to have a beautiful day to celebrate this little guy’s 5th birthday!
