twin lakes day care

Here are some pics of a hike we did while we were in Montana. Twin Lakes, if I remember correctly. We were a group of 21 going up the trail, 7 adults and 14 kids!! Anyone who passed by must have thought we were crazy.

The first 500m or so I thought this was absolutely awesome. I love hiking! Something about the untouched surroundings of so many hues of green make my heart skip a beat. The endurance testing exercise hiking gives..... the mountainous 360 degree view.... the lack of noise other than my heavy breathing..... I was enjoying all of this until my 3 year old decided he couldn't go uphill anymore. And if you have seen his little body you would understand. So then I had to give him a shoulder ride while I carried baby in the backpack. Suddenly hiking didn't seem like such a good idea. What was I thinking going without Josh? Who chose to make a trail straight uphill? Why is that sun so hot? Man alive are those bushes too close and prickly!..... Am I ever glad I have a tough dad who was able carry Bo most of the way.

Made it enjoyable again.

great news!!!!!!!!


I lost my wedding ring; maybe a month ago? It was way back before I even went to Montana. It was so lost. I thought I lost it in my sister's guest room at her house. Lo and behold, today as I was putting Bo in his car seat on the way to pick up his older brother from school, there it is sitting in his seat!

I am so happy.

I also realize maybe I should clean out my car more.

Where to begin? I will start with some pictures from the cabin we rented in Montana. Well, my mom payed and we played. It was so much fun! The weather was incredible, the shopping great, and being with family wonderful.

A view from the house. The place was straight from 1975, but other than the blue and pink everything it was just perfect.

Check out these cool duds that this guy loved sporting. It could hardly get those goggles off his head.
