After departing Bend, Oregon, we headed toward Red Lodge, Montana, to spend time with family there.  On our way, we made sure to stock up on some books for Hayden, who plowed through his Summer reading so far...

Stop overnight in Coeur de' Alene.  We had a gorgeous spot right  on the lake, and spent some time there before dinner.

We arrived in Red Lodge, MT in the evening, and the kids hit the hot tub straightaway!  They were overjoyed to see their cousins...

The next day, we headed out to Greenough Lake for a hike....

Back in Red Lodge for the 4th of July "parade".  The kids loved getting candy!

BBQ at Paul and Megan's

 We had the most heated kids vs. adults wiffle ball game in the yard.  SO MUCH FUH!!!!
 Fireworks overlooking town...

Bedtime books...
The next day we headed out on a whitewater rafting trip on the Stillwater river. SO MUCH FUN!!! 

Following rafting, we changed and headed to dinner at the Bearcreek Saloon and Steakhouse, followed by pig races there.  The kids LOVED it, and Hayden was a big winner!

On our last day in town, we headed back to Greenough Lake to fish.  We had such fun, and Uncle Brian taught us all the tricks.  We caught 8 rainbow trout, including Hayden's first catch ever!  So much fun!

We have such sweet, sweet memories of our time in Montana, and the life-giving time with our family there!
