Yellowstone

I had a day off from work yesterday, and we spontaneously decided to drive to Yellowstone National Park for the afternoon. We got an annual pass since it didn't cost much more than the regular one, so I'm sure we'll have some more Yellowstone pictures as the summer continues. It was beautiful!








When we pulled up to Old Faithful and checked when it was supposed to go off next we saw that we'd just missed it by about ten minutes. It goes off every ninety minutes, and we didn't want to wait that long since we both had meetings that night, so we ate our lunch and decided to leave. Just as we were getting to the parking lot, we saw the thing start shooting up water and heard people cheering. (Yeah, that's right. People were cheering. Pretty intense.) We were happy to be able to see it, get some pictures, and then take off before the crowd of people did. Sorry the colors in the Old Faithful picture are weird--you couldn't really see the geyser because the sky was white, so I did some photoshop tweaking.

Wow, I wish I could just get in the car and drive a few hours to get to Yellowstone, I have always wanted to go there, I am very jealous right now. Glad you had a good time.

Brett said...

you'll never have what i have. it's called class. C L A S S class. That's what you're missing, but what I've got. Lots to spare too, but I'm not sharing it with you because I'm too classy.

Brett said...

Just by you saying I have a fat butt shows how ignorant you are. you're top of your class in being ignorant. And it's a big class. So I hear, I'm not in that stupid class. Tried to get in so I could make fun of you in class, but they were like, "Brett? Oh no, no no no. You're too awesome to be in this class. Just too awesome." Then they bowed and chanted my name the way i like people to chant my name,b b brett b b brett.

Plus, I have a mirror for a closet door. I think I would know if I have a fat butt or not. Frankly, there's really not much meat back there. So where do you get off? Where? Honestly. Where? I'd like to know. I'll meet you there, slap you in the face and punch you right in the shin.

Brett said...

But there is enough meat. Just the right amount. Don't get me wrong. DON'T YOU DARE!

Brett said...

You know what, it doesn't even bother me. I'm going to sink down to your level. I'm too classy. So you tried to make yourself feel better by putting me down. I guess you just like punching guys in the groin. Whatever. That's not me. I mean, just because your head is too small for your body and you look like a witch doctor shrunk your noggen doesn't mean I'm going to make fun of it. That's just not me.

Brett said...

I meant to say that I'm NOT going to sink down to your level. But that goes without saying. So why I just said it, not sure. Probably so you can understand. Being that your head is so small it must not give room for a decent size brain.
