This weekend we took a little walk to Trout Lake in Yellowstone National Park. Attending the hike were my mom, Anders, Finn and me.

Scroll down to see lots and lots of photos. And a video.

Isn’t Finn the cutest thing ever? He and his brother, that is. Adorable.

Anders carried around a tray of blueberries and offered them to weary hikers.

None shall pass. None shall pass!


After this photo was taken, Finn dropped mom’s trekking pole into the creek.

Finn almost fell asleep on the hike out even though it was raining on him. Luckily, I was able to keep him awake and cheerful.
