Our time at Grampa & Grammas…

We just wrapped up a month at my (Dana’s) parents’ house.  We had a lot of fun playing with the cousins, and did all sorts of things. While we were there, we celebrated Jake’s birthday…The kids had a ball raking up big piles of leavesand spent hours jumping in them and burying each other.The girls […]

Magformers = creative, travel-friendly fun!

A few weeks ago we got the most fun package in the mail!  It was full of Magformers! FedEx dropped our review sets off just as we were getting ready to leave for the day on a fun outing.  I didn’t tell the kids what was in the box though because I knew they would then […]

Chief Plenty Coups State Park, MT…

Since we are parked at my parent’s for a month while Vaughn helps them remodel their new house, I’ve been trying to find some educational/fun activities for the kids.  To be honest, the area around Billings really doesn’t have much in the form of family oriented (let alone educational) destinations.  We enjoyed the Western Heritage […]

Carving Pumpkins…

My kids have never celebrated Halloween.  We look around at all the evil being embraced, and want our family to have no part of it.  It is no longer a holiday of princess, knights, and Casper the Ghost, but instead it’s cool to dress up like a sleaze, a murderer, or their victim.  That’s not cool. We […]

This morning we woke up to a beautiful snow fall. Course, snow is a lot prettier when you are snuggly tucked in a house with a roaring fire and a big mug of hot cocoa!  In an RV, well, it’s not so great. It was time to leave Gramma’s apartment and head back to ‘home’. Good […]

A little jaunt ‘back home’…

Last Wednesday we all made the little 4 hour jaunt ‘back home’ to Helena.  It is a pretty drive…We took both rigs to Billings, but left the 5er at my parent’s house when we returned back to Helena.   When we got ‘back home’, we invaded Gramma’s apartment.  We weren’t sure how it was going to […]

Western Heritage Center, Billings, MT…

On Thursday the Tribe ventured in to Billings (MT) to check out the Western Heritage Center.   This museum features local history, including the founding and subsequent boom of Billings. Anytime that we are checking out a new place, I wonder just how family/kid friendly the location is going to be.   The WHC was no different […]

Happy 16th Jake!!!

On Sunday, we drove about 4 hours to my (Dana’s) parent’s house.  They just bought a new home last month, and they have some remodeling they want done, so we are visiting for the next few weeks while the guys help them with putting in a new kitchen, moving walls, and redoing the master bath. […]

heading out…

It’s time for this tribe to move on.  We had a wonderful time ‘back home’, with our big kids and gramma, we had the best ‘home base’ with our adoptive-grands hosts, and we loved to touch base with our friends. We got to love on grandbaby Dillon… We got to watch him sometimes while Hannah […]

Big Hole National Battlefield, SW MT…

I forgot that I had not blogged about our visit to the Big Hole National Battlefield while we were camping in the snow… This was not our first visit to the Big Hole Battlefield; we had last visited BHNB about 5 years ago’ – before we knew about the Jr. Ranger programs, and before this park’s […]
