Holli gets Yellowstoned

Going Swimming  Kite Club
Yellowstone has it ALL.

My brother
(he is working there for the summer)
Great Lodging.
We loved our lil' cabin home.
Fit with Native American decor and a jet tub.
Fine Dining!
My parents at Wild West Pizzeria.
Scenic drives!!
Exciting natural phenomena!
Ol' Faithful!

 Lovely hikes and postcard views!

This Bison has an itchy back.

 Admiring the majesty of the American Buffalo from a safe distance.

We couldn't leave this park without a coon hat. 
I mean, come on.
Precious Stones!!

Basically, when I got here I instantly became mad that I had never been there before after living in Idaho/Utah for four years. It brought back all my childhood desires of wanting to be a forest ranger in a national park. I want to LIVE here. 

Everybody go and get Yellowstoned.

Cali Weekend

Sun Was High  Best Coast

Just one delightful weekend of relaxing, beaching, and reuniting with the fam in California.

 Seal Beach

Walking the pier with Tricia, Mom, Sky, Kris, and Brock

Toy Story 3 with Tricia in 3-D!!! 
How does Trish make her eye brows do that?

Highlight of the trip: I finally had the pleasure of meeting my newest niece, Kate. She's an absolute doll.

Me n' "Baby Cake" (as Ruby calls her)

The Ferrins. 
Because my uncle Don's family live in Singapore, it's a rare occasion when we can get all the aunts and uncles  and grandparents together at the same time.

Party in the hot tub!

My grandpa knows how to take it easy.

I really love my fam.

Marathon Tennis

Last time I was home, I was going through boxes of family photos when I came across this contact sheet with pictures of Tricia and Jheri when they were probably 5 and 11, or somewhere around those ages. These are likely pics that were never printed or displayed for anyone to see, but I thought that they were so precious. I just had make something of them. And so this modest collage was born.

Aren't my sisters cute? They still are lovely ladies. In fact, look at the pic of Tricia (bottom, left corner). She still makes that face.

I was pretty young when these were taken, but there were a handful of shots with me in them as well. Mostly chasing ducks.

Dreams Come True

Tightrope Janelle Monae

Some stranger handed me this flier while I was enjoying Girl Talk at the Twilight Concert Series.

I'll forever consider him a bearded heavenly messenger.

A new venue in Salt Lake? Of Montreal? JANELLE MONAE?!?!?

I'm so there.

Best of my Love

Disco Sucks!!!

Well. . . except for this song.

This song is undeniably good-- the bass line, the back-up singers. . . I think I got the disco fever.

Buskin Cuffs

I'm kinda obsessed with my brother's band. . .
and their first-ever photo shoot.

Aren't they adorable?
