The next day we met up with the Helveys at the famous Helvey diner of choice, Chilis. It was good to see them, and this is where I was presented with my "Wildlife T-Shirt" My was brown with a big screen-printed wolf on it.

Yellowstone was awesome and Maddie's performance at the Playmill in West Yellowstone was fantastic! I got to see Seven Brides for Seven Brothers and absolutely loved it. I was surprised that I did. It may have been because Maddie was in it. :) It is always cooler to see a performance or show with a familiar face on stage. I am still sad that I didn't get to see her in Beauty and the Beast.
We visited Yellowstone National Park as well, my first visit to the park. It was so beautiful and even more magnificent to finally see in person. We did some hiking, and saw real Buffaloes!!! That was definitely the highlight of the trip. There had to be hundreds of them all making their way across the road we were on, right at sunset. Some were extremely "friendly" coming close to our car and blocking in a motor home parked off to the side. It was very exciting, but also very scary. Below are some pictures from the trip. The buffalo ones wont look that impressive, but it was awesome in person!
