a little summer vacation

 we headed south to Montana.
we shopped a bit.

saw some beautiful sights (while driving on a scary  narrow road with rocks close enough to touch out the window on one side, and sheer cliffs on the other. yikes!)

we got to ride the alpine slide in Whitefish. they don't let you go down this close together, Sadie was just very cautious (slow), Maggie was a bit faster, and Cory was fast enough to catch up to both of them at the bottom of the slide!

and we dipped our toes in freezing cold waterfalls coming from melted snow high up on the mountain tops.- it was so very hot the few days that we were there, I don't know how there was still snow around!

It has been a while. a long while. a lot has happened since I last blogged. like...
Ben graduated high school. yay!

the girls and I hit a town wide garage sale, and were led to an amazing sale- with a cute barn we had to take a picture by! (we got piles of stuff for about $6! fun sale!)

while my mom and I were out in my garage setting up for our own garage sale, the kids came home from school saying there was a tornado watch, and the high school kids were let out early. meanwhile my mom and I were just working away in the garage, oblivious to the crazy weather. But when the kids did get home, they were running back and forth from the house to the garage, not really afraid of tornadoes, so I guess it wasn't so bad after all?!
