This has been the Summer of road trips for us, and not just quick little road trips, I’m talking 12+ hours in the car road trips…Oye-To-The-Vey! Thank heavens for all electronic gadgets and headphones!
My Mom’s parents were not able to join us in Whitefish this year as they are getting older and it’s harder to travel. So…we decided to go to them! I’m so glad we did. I really do love a good road trip, and the beauty of the plains has made me fall in love with this one.
It’s kind of funny the amount of love we have for the State of Montana where my mom grew up. We always sing the Montana State song when we cross the state border. Ask me if I know the Utah State song?! …uh?! But the Montana State Song? You betcha!
I snapped this road trip pic of our car full of kids. I love it! Avery was in the other car as we caravanned up. One thing my kids have not had a lack of this Summer, is time with their cousins (on both sides). I love that they get so much time with them. I count it as such a blessing.
How cute is this little drive-in we stopped at in Livingston MT?! We had just gone through the Lewis and Clark Caverns, and we were all so hungry.
Aiden and I on the swings. I’ll be honest, it’s hard not to worry on rides that were assembled on the same day. I can just hear them now…”Opps! We forgot a screw, Bob! (as my swing ejects me off the ride).
Thanks for reading.
I hope you have a wonderful weekend! (Our last weekend before school starts.)
