So far we’ve:
sweated and hiked through the Badlands of South Dakota,
dug Wall Drug and enjoyed some free water,
hung out with family and shopped at my sister’s store,
driven a helluva lot,
spent a few days with my bestie, Amy, and her girls,
slid down a mountain in Whitefish, MT,
driven through Glacier Park,
swam in Lake MacDonald in GNP,
driven some more,
went junking–Montana style,
taken a zillion photos,
and driven a little more….

We said goodbye to our friends yesterday and headed south. Amy flew to Asheville three July’s ago. We hadn’t seen each other before that and we haven’t seen each other since until this week. The funny thing is, it didn’t seem like that much time had passed and we just pick up where we left off. I love friends like that–easy and refreshing. We get each other and our kids were like long-lost cousins. It was pretty perfect.
We’re still Montana. This state has too much to offer to only stay a few days. It feels like summer; the packed car, the road map, the travel journal, and all the things I remember from road trips with my family. There’s something about doing something with your own kids that you did growing up that makes being a parent so much sweeter.
Happy summer weekend to you, wherever you might be…
