On Monday Night we slept at campground called Spotted Bear. Here we are poking our heads out of the tent before bedtime. It was pretty late, but still light outside. I know in the summer time we are all use to the sun setting late, but in Montana, it can be 11pm and there is still light in the sky. It makes for great summer nights. The flip side is that it gets dark really early in the Winter months.
On Tuesday we went rafting/fishing for about three hours. Shane was in Heaven because He loves to fish...personally, I'd rather watch the grass grow, but rafting makes it much more interesting for someone like me. Avery has a really great time especially when we go over the "rapids" which on this river were really more like ripples, just perfect for a 4 year old.
I would personally like to thank my son Sage for falling asleep in the raft and making this trip far more stress free. The great out doors just aren't quite his thing yet; next summer though....
throwing rock after endless rock into the river.
She did reel in her own fish a few times. It took a lot of convincing to get her to hold this fish.
My two boys...I can't help but love this picture.
This was actually on Saturday night after we arrived. Austin, Shane's brother, is sort of a barbecue extraordinaire and every trip to Montana he cooks up something really amazing and delicious for us.
Sage really needs a dog. He did not let Kyla our of his sight anytime she was around.
I really like this action shot. Kesler, our nephew, would run away anytime I'd pull the camera out so this is one of the few shots I got without his back to the camera. He warmed up a few days later and let me take his picture.
This picture is dramatically out of order...again camping at spotted bear with Austin, Amy, and their sons Kesler and Bridger.
Did I mention Sage needs a dog?
More of our Montana adventure to come later. Thanks for hanging in there.
