Country Fair

 Love spending a day at the country fair. Miss Lily still spends hours talking and checking out each and every animal.

Constructing Summer Fun

We have had a lot of construction in our little town this summer. We handed out Kit Kat bars to the workers/flaggers at the sights fixing our town's bridge.
"Give me a break, give me a break
break me off a piece of that Kit- Kat Bar"
(love that old jingle)

Cake Mix Construction Play . . .  

Constructing Ice cream sundaes . . . yummy

We finally got a discount movie theater in our neck of the woods- wahoo, we can
finally see a movie or two on the big screen and not go broke.
Turbo was playing so we made a fun afternoon of it.  
 A little escargot . .  . budget style

Finished the day with "snail" shell races

Glacier Adventure

So I have been zonked with packing, cleaning, sorting, packing, cleaning, and house hunting
for our next chapter in life. When the hubby had a couple of days home I told him we needed to spend some time as a family somewhere close and affordable to get away from the stress for a couple of days. I snagged the last hotel room in Kalispell for the weekend and off we went. Just before Libby Montana our check engine light came on. We drove to the parts store to use the tool that reads the check engine codes and it came up electrical. They called a mechanic that was close by- he said he wasn't going to answer the phone because it was his wife's birthday and was trying to get out but something told him to answer it. He came down and checked it out for a couple hours then told Chris he wasn't going to be able to fix it for a day or so. He said we could either stay in Libby or take his extra van and go enjoy Glacier. Our rooms were non- refundable because I got them so late and so with a lot of trust both ways we left our van with a complete stranger and loaded our family up in a complete stranger's van and were off on an adventure. So much for getting away " to relax".  Chris and I worried the entire time about how much $ and if our van was going to be able to be fixed. But  Glacier was absolutely gorgeous and stunning.
 ( we only ended up with one day - one very full day at Glacier after all the car problems
but took enough pics to drain both my camera and cell phone batteries)


First Triathalon

India's sweet bestie (well her Bestie's momma) treated India to
a week long triathalon training camp. It was fun for the girlies to spend a whole
week all day long together biking, swimming, running, and hiking.
At the end of the week they "competed" in their
first triathalon. India and Ellie were the youngest. Most were 11 year olds.
They did an awesome job.

and running.
India was neck and neck for first place. He won by a shoe.
She had such a fun time. Thankful for sweet friends who share
and bless our lives with fun experiences- xoxo
