Where does the time go?

It's been a while since I posted. I have been really lazy ever since we got home from Montana. It's like I forgot how to do all the things I used to do.


2 weeks is a long time, but it didn't feel that long when we were there. We kept moving around from place to place. Here are some pictures from our 4th of July fireworks show we put on at Marcie and Keith's house.
Look how they are mesmerized by the fire. I'm not sure but I think that is a flaming pile of poo.





This one is a bit blurry, but here we are laying in the grass to get a better view.


Yay Sparklers!! I remember having these when I was a kid.



The kids had a great time. They got to light the fireworks themselves and I'm not sure but I think they enjoyed that part more than the fireworks show itself.


While we were at breakfast at Benji's (in Plains) we read on a place mat that cows outnumber people 3 to 1 in Montana. Of course those place mats haven't changed in the past couple years (that I've been going there) but there really are a lot of cows in Montana.

These lovely ladies are on the road we drive to get to the cabin.

They all stare at us when we drive past.

This sign had me laughing! I asked Jason if he thought they were also armed and dangerous.

Not only are there lots of cows, we also saw moose while we were there.

This is a cow moose. Another time when we were on the highway, some folks risked getting run over by getting out of their car and rushing across the road to get a closer look at a bull moose in a river. People really do some stupid things. Moose aren't friendly like Bullwinkle would have you believe. If the cars don't kill you, that bull moose just might!

I'm going to share some more pictures on my next post, so check back in a couple days to see them!
