My family doesn't do a lot of traveling but we have big dreams: Haiti, Germany, New Zealand, England, Alaska, South Africa - the sky's the limit when it comes to dreams. However, there is one place I cannot wait to take my kids that's perhaps a little more plausible: Yellowstone National Park.
On July 2, 2005 my then-boyfriend took me to Yellowstone when I visited him in Wyoming. We saw Old Faithful, the stinky sulfur paint pots, beautiful animals and landscapes. And then in a fairy tale dream, I got asked to be his wife as we overlooked the beautiful Lower Falls waterfall *cue dreamy eyes*.
Ever since we welcomed our first child in 2007 until this last baby in 2018, I've dreamed of the day when they would all be old enough to take and explore this beautiful place. I want them to see Old Faithful, Lower Falls, and so much more. I want them to see moose (the one animal I wanted to see and didn't get to), longhorn sheep, and hopefully not bears. It's such a special place in my heart and I cannot wait to share that with my family.
An animated adventure for all ages, with original music and an all-star cast, “Smallfoot” turns a myth upside down when a bright young yeti finds something he thought didn’t exist—a human.
News of this “smallfoot” throws the simple yeti community into an uproar over what else might be out there in the big world beyond their snowy village, in an all new story about friendship, courage and the joy of discovery.
“Smallfoot” stars Channing Tatum (“The LEGO® Batman Movie,” the “Jump Street” films) , Zendaya (“Spider-Man: Homecoming”), Common (“Selma”), LeBron James (upcoming “Space Jam 2”), Danny DeVito (“The Lorax,” Oscar nominee for “Erin Brockovich”), Gina Rodriguez (“Jane the Virgin”), and Yara Shahidi (TV’s “Black-ish”). It debuts in theaters on September 28.
