Big Sky

We went on a road trip! Just the four of us, from Ellensburg, Washington to Bozeman, Montana in August.

Here are a few pictures with more to come...

We had a few REALLY fun car games (thanks to Logan) that made the car ride go by really easily. Both Kevin and Nolan were excellent travelers. They didn't ask, "Are we there yet?" until we were just 2 hours away from Bozeman! So I got to say, "Two more hours!" (that one's for you, Mom and Dad)

We experienced some rain, which was refreshing.

And made it to Montana!!!

Yellowstone National Park was one of the reasons we went. Man, was that day eventful. More about this and other adventures still to come!

Stay tuned or visit the boys' blog in the next couple of days to read about Letterboxing, Kevin's pictures, Nolan's pictures and other stories.

Montana Bound

In two days I will be heading home to my boys. We will leave on Wednesday for a trip to Montana to see what we can see. ~ Logan and I have plans to open a resort lodge and we want to see if it is a place we can envision living and working. And, well, if we are ever going to go, now is the time. The boys start school soon and though we don't have "extra" money we think we can spare a little to make this trip. ~ We've never been on vacation to a destination other than "Gramma and Papa's" or "Nana and Papa's". We've never traveled those roads together or been in the car together for 10 hours. And we've never seen Bozeman or Missoula.

We will get to experience a lot of firsts together and I am VERY excited about that.

The boys will each be armed with a camera so I am excited to see what they think is important to get a snap shot of. We have road trip books for them and scrap books to fill up. We have car games planned and fun stops to make.

I can hardly wait!

I've been wanting to write a new blog post for some time. In fact I commented to a friend this morning that a blog post would be one of my goals for the day. Of course my plans were hijacked by a migraine. So here I sit, staring at a blank post and wonder about what to write about.

If anyone reads this anymore I'll be surprised. I have been sporadic about it.

But I looked back on previous posts on this blog and the boys' blog. I managed to write down some very precious moments and some funny ones too. I've also made my opinion public by way of my blog and have been able to think through some religious things as well.

Well, our family is changing. Life is changing us. And I don't want to forget. So I'll start posting more often here rather than on Facebook. I'll also be posting on the boys' blog too. We are taking a family vacation soon so we want to use their blog to post about the trip. If you're reading this, look there after August 10th.
