What a fun MacKnight party!

Thanks to Jared and Janey, we got to have a great little getaway over Memorial Day Weekend!  We went to Janey's family's cabin in Island Park and we even got to go to YELLOWSTONE!  It was a bit of a drive for all SEVEN of us, but we had so much fun that we hope we will eventually forget about that drive...

Here are the boys and "Uncle Jungle-Gym":
And here is Jerd and Alli having some bonding time!
The bebes LOVED having some freedom to wander in the woods and get really dirty...I don't have a picture of it, but our boys absolutely love to be mountain men.  They explored and gathered materials to build their own miniature log cabin, they had exhilarating four-wheeler rides and every other sort of fun thing!  
Here is Jackson making the most of his time at Yellowstone Park...(You have to give the little guy some credit, He spends a great amount of time with his little bum glued to the stroller!).
Old Faithful was AWESOME!  And you can't believe what happened RIGHT next to us... This guy totally got down on one knee and proposed to his girl right when Old Faithful went off!  We were all congratulating him when she said yes!  
The scenery in Yellowstone is breathtaking!  I don't think anyone would mind too much if I just move in to the park.  We could have spent a full week exploring and never be ready to leave.
Anyways, we had a wonderful time and set a new record.  This was the most MacKnight siblings we have ever gotten together on one trip!  It is so much fun to love your brothers and sisters as much as we do.  If I had to hand pick my brothers and sisters, I would totally pick each one of them.  They are incredible AND incredibly funny!  Thanks for all the fun you adorable thginkcam's!

It is beautiful isn't it! Now you just have to make the venture in the winter! It's completely different covered in snow. The boys would have a blast being able to drive snomobiles down the roads in town. But it is a good thing you went to Old Faithful in the summer cuz it's a loonngg ride on a snowmobile. Sounds like you had a wonderful, beautiful time.

Looks like you had a fun time. It really stinks being so far away from our family that we can't get together with them so much. I am so glad you got to do that. I love to hear how much you love your family! It makes me feel happy when I hear people say that. It is interesting to me to see how much we change as we get older too, you know I didn't use to absolutely LOVE my brothers, they were mean to me growing up,(mostly Ricky) but as we have gotten older the way you look at them changes, your relationship changes and you feel a very great love for them. At least that is the way it was for me. Anyway, thanks for sharing.
