|favorite pastime- throwing rocks in the water|
|we need a creek in our yard, i think.|
|back off, mom.|
|saved from falling in the river!|
|playing as the sun sets and the fly fishermen do their thing...|
we celebrated all the summer birthdays with cake- somehow caroline managed to sneak the spotlight even though her birthday was in March.
|it was actually Uncle Russell's birthday, so we let him help Caroline blow out the candles.|
|uncle russell mesmerizing caroline with a garter snake... we think.|
|everyone wanted to play with the snake... julia is naked because she just finished throwing up all over the garage. (quite an introduction to the 'significant others' who were meeting us for the first time! "nice to meet you- here's some vomit.")|
anyway- the snake was just the first of the wildlife we encountered. lots of elk on the fields and golf course, a bear in a tree while i was running, and lots of great birds!
thank you, grandma ginny! this was a wonderful memory-making trip... can't believe i don't have any pictures of caroline playing miniature golf! she LOVED that so much... i see a future bad golfer in the family! : )
