Y is for Yodeling

I have always wanted to learn to yodel, ever since I was a wee little lass and learned that song about the Austrian who went yodeling.

When I was in junior high school, I was in an orchestra that traveled to Germany and Austria. Driving on our tour bus through the Bavarian Alps, we tried, but alas, our yodeling fell short of beautiful.

When Elliott and I were dating, a group of us, including my roommate Nicole, went hiking in Sundance. Nicole and I were ahead of the group, and decided to try a little yodeling. When Elliott caught up to us he wondered if we were torturing a small animal! hehehe, He married me anyway!

The video posted below is amazing. Your kids will love it, and so will you!
