Who know's our state's song?

Montana, Montana
Glory of the west
Of all the states from coast to coast
You're easily the best!
Montana, Montana
The skies are always blue
Montana, I love you!

We are packed and ready for our visit to our home state!  More stories to come :)

Okay, this is a record!!  Only two weeks from the last post, so I guess I can get a reward.  Usually I would say that my reward is that good feeling inside from the fact that I have accomplished something...this time, my reward with be a venti iced coffee from Starbucks with lots of whipped cream!!

Nana and Papa are visiting us here in the big city, and we took them to Mt. Evan's today, which is a 14,000 foot peak.  Since they are living in North Carolina, we thought it would be good for their lungs, to experience thin we just thought the view would be amazing; and it was!!  We drove most of it, but did hike a little at the end.  Amelia was quite the hiker as well :)
Cheesy boys

We ARE having fun, right Papa?

The truck ride

Our hearts are full for our dear friends, the Moores, as they welcome their new daughter Wren into their family!!  We will be visiting MT the end of July through the beginning of August, and hope to catch up with everyone.  Love to all!!

Four Months Later

Oh my goodness (to quote my daughter)!  It has been quite awhile, like FOUR MONTHS, since I have updated our family blog.  Well, what excuses can I come up with?
-Two children
-Yard work
-Making dinner
No, none of these are real excuses... it's called laziness, pure and simple.  I mean, how hard can it be to sit at the computer, put a few pictures on the blog and then move on.  It really is NOT that difficult, so I will try with all of my heart to make my next post in three months or less :)

Jeeping with the Rowes in Moab

I was a little cold, but it was SO fun!!

Camping with friends and celebrating HD's b-day
