[This was supposed to be posted several days ago, but I've been busy trying to upload photos and such. Sorry guys!]

I have plenty to share with all you SFTM [ShootForTheMoon] followers.

First, I want to acknowledge the Jones Family. In my last post, I disclosed the grave state of Conner Jones, a 7 year old boy who has cystic fibrosis and Prune Belly Syndrome. His whole life has been an enormous fight---PBS is a condition that basically means he has no abdominal muscles. Without abdominal muscles, Conner was unable to cough out any of the mucus in his lungs. Coughing out this mucus is crucial for people with CF, because it rids the lungs of a portion of the mucus and decreases the chances of infection. He passed away on June 25, 2010. Conner is the only person EVER to be diagnosed with both CF and PBS. I did not know the Jones' personally, but I was able to follow Conner's updates, diagnoses, conditions, and lifestyle via his mom, Sarah's, blog. I will post a link to it underneath, but a quick "viewer discretion" : GO GRAB A TISSUE BOX BEFORE READING.


With that sad news, I shall move on to happier things.

So, as a few of you have noticed, I haven't posted any new posts on here in a couple days. That, my friends, is because I've been inhabiting a log cabin in northern Idaho with my dad, three siblings, grandparents and aunt, and have had no internet connection. Let me just say, that I know it's SUMMERTIME because I can't remember what day of the week it is right now. Each day has been going day-to-day-to-day with some new adventure, and its been awesome.

So a couple days ago (again, I can't remember any dates), we arrived to Idaho after a 12.5 hour drive. Excruciatingly long. My butt has never been so sore. 

That night, we explored the log cabin and all of its taxidermic wonders (believe me, there were a lot), then set off for Yellowstone the next day. We were only 20 or so minutes away from the Yellowstone entrance, so it was kind of a nifty location we were in. In those twenty minutes of driving, we drove through Idaho, Montana and Wyoming. Cool, right?

So for the next two days, we were exploring Yellowstone National Park. Like most of the tourists, we were busy snapping pics of steaming pools and exploding geysers, such as the well-known Old Faithful. In addition to YNP, we went shopping and I bought a pair of moccasins, while my sister, Hannah, bought a cowboy hat. Love 'em.
Old Faithful :)

Our third and last full day in the cabin, all of us (except for my grandparents), went on a horseback ride around Silver Lake, not too far from where we were staying. My horse's name was Desert Rat, or Rat for short. It was the most gorgeous hoseback ride I've ever been on. One minute we'd be walking through the forest, the next we were in the middle of a flower-filled meadow, then we'd be alongside the lake. It was amazing. The funnest part was when Hannah and I would slow our horsies down, then nudge them to make them gallop :).


That night, we had a crazy, crazy thunder storm. There was pink/red lightning that lit up the entire sky. If you want to check it out, I will have a video on my youtube channel sometime soon.

The next morning (this morning), we packed up our stuff and drove south about 5 or 6 hours to Salt Lake City, where we are currently staying. We will be here for just tonight, then we're driving a couple more hours tomorrow.

So yeah, that's my update on our vacation. I don't have much else to say...

OH, yes, I would like to thank Mike Squier real quick for letting me borrow the camera (see last post). I think the pictures I'll develop are going to turn out pretty good! (Let's hope so...)


ALSO, I received a text from my wonderful mother, Lori Lindmeier. Turns out, Cayston's been delivered to my house! Yay! :D

Also, I would like to ask a quick favor of all my readers. I want my blog to be "out-there". I want people to know about it. If you guys wouldn't mind, could you pass my URL around to people? Maybe a Facebook link, or an email, or something? I currently have 8 followers. I'm not complaining, I love my 8 followers :D. I just want to spread the word :).

I love all of you guys to pieces, even those of you I don't know. Nobody knows how happy I get inside when an unexpected person comes up to me and compliments me on my blog. It's VERY much appreciated!

Have a great rest of the week, lovelies <3.
