Tom & Marlene's Yellowstone Vacation - June 2016

In 2008, we had made all the reservations for our dream vacation in Yellowstone. Then Tom got laid off when the financial crisis caused huge losses at the credit union. Shortly after that, Marlene lost her job after 8 years of teaching. Then Brandon lost his job. Then Sarah joined the unemployment line. It was a disastrous year for our family. With so much uncertainty, we cancelled our vacation.

Fast forward 8 years, and we had the trip of a lifetime! Here are photos from Marlene and Tom, pages from Marlene's journal, and pictures of Marlene's watercolors.
