{Over the River and Through the Woods}

Last week we sneaked away to visit Jamie's family in Montana. My mother-in-law delighted in taking us to all of her "growing up" haunts. It was wonderful.

Manhattan is nestled in the Gallatin Valley, surrounded on all sides by rolling hills and majestic mountains. It smells of sweet sage and sun-bleached hay and makes me want to wear boots and a cowboy hat all day.

Time stood still for a week and we soaked it all in . . .

There's a reason this place is called Big Sky

Cousins (who insist on telling people they're actually twins)

The Lawson boys. Mine's the thirsty one.
Dry Creek Bible Church
Impromptu concert on Aunt Ella's organ

Day trip to Yellowstone

Visiting the barn where Granny collected eggs as a child
In her element. Oh, and the house in the background? It belonged to her great-great-great grandfather.
Fourth of July at The Garage in Bozeman
Virginia City stagecoach tour
Again, in her element.
Home again, home again, jiggity jig!
