Montana Vacation

To my Grandchildren...

Papa and I are up in Montana as I write this and nearing the end of our 2 week vacation visiting with the Underhills.

We have done 2 new things this trip. We went to a rodeo in Columbia Falls and saw Eric do some bull riding... without breaking anything! He looked good on his ride for all those 4 loooooooooong seconds! Right after the rodeo, we drove up to Big Creek for a 3 day camping trip beside the river. There were 18 of us all together camping, plus 3 dogs and "Bob" (whom I will enlighten you about in my next blog).

Yesterday was a special day for Matthew... It was his 11th birthday and boy, was
he excited. He wanted Legos and Bionicles and received several, so he was on top of the world! Like Kathleen, he did not want a birthday cake, but liked donuts and ice cream. Of course pizza was for dinner!

Hope you will all respond sometime and I will try and keep you posted about all of the super, extraordinary happenings that Papa and I experience in the future!

Love.... xoxox P.S. Nora helped me create this blog... I could never have done it by myself. Thanks Nim! The name of her blog is Nim's World. You get to it by typing in....


  1. Dear Ones...

    Well, we are back from Montana and although
    I haven't anything super extraordinary to write about, we did do some stuff and I did want to say "Hi".

    Today Papa and I drove down to a Koi Show near Sacramento with Lauri + Scott, Rachel + Jacob and Scott's mother, Bobbie... to celebrate Lauri's birthday Sept. 14th. Lauri bought 3 koi with her birthday money and bid in an auction for an extraordinarily big one... about 3 feet long! The type of koi she bought is known for it's friendliness and will be an example to the other koi in the pond to come up to people to eat out of their hands. The show was great and the fish were so beautiful!

    The youth choirs started up today. I am so excited to be back with the choirs and hearing
    them sing again.

    We went to Rachel's jr. high school's Open House at Central last week and got to go around to all her classes. It was nice to meet her teachers and actually see them instead of just hearing their names. That was fun.

    Saturday Papa and I went to Rachel and Jacob's opening soccer games. Jacob's team won the tournament and each one received a medal to hang around their necks and a T-shirt.

    Rachel is on an all-girl traveling team which
    happened to have a home game Saturday. They didn't win this one. Rachel got to play alot, but not as much as she wanted to.

    Well, bye for now. Thinking about you all...
    Love, xoxox
