Round trips

Is it worth almost 7 hours -round trip- of driving to get a 4 generation photo?

4 generations

Depends on who you ask.

I'd say yes.  Just don't ask me when we've been in the car for 2.5 hours and my maternity jeans that have decided to be too small are making my hips and thighs riot with discomfort.  At that moment I may not be thinking clearly enough to say yes.

Besides, where else but Flaming Gorge can you order a hamburger that's bigger than a pizza?  (and forget to take a before photo?)

Or traipse out to Vernal to take a 1/2 mile hike to see a dinosaur fossil?  (Okay, so that may not have been our brightest, shiniest idea ever)

Or watch your husband single-handedly move a large tree into the back of a truck? (Felling trees is kind of exciting..... Mr Renn's grandparents use a lot of firewood every winter)

Or watch your boys play in the same cars their daddy used to play in and love every moment of it?  (Possibly my favorite part)

Still, it's nice to be back with our stuff, and to not be worried that Sir O is going to pee through his very last pair of pants at any moment.  We have just a few moments to catch our breath, and Mr Renn has his ACLS test and starts work!

YES. 4 Generation photos are PRICELESS, especially after they are no longer possible.

That log Renn is moving looks VERY heavy!
