Once again we took a road trip to Montana to visit my parents and little brother. We had to be about a month and a half early for Christopher's birthday, but it is the thought that counts right?
While we were there we visited the 40 foot "coal chute" slide in Anaconda, It was a blast even with the risk of friction burns! I particularly love the sheer look of joy on Robert's face as he and Mark race down the slide.
We also managed to find time to go fishing at Georgetown Lake with our family friend Garrett and his daughter. My mom and I mostly just sat in the shade and chatted, but it was good to have the opportunity to bond.
While we were at the lake, Christopher decided to try wading...I love the look on his face from deciding that it was too cold!
While we were in Montana we also got the opportunity to visit thrift shops, tour an old state prison, visit a western museum, toy museum and car museum. We also got to stop and play at Prospector's Playground which was fun because we got to try to pan for gold. We also were able to stop and see the trout hatchery...sounds boring, right? It was actually really neat, they had a visitors center with all sorts of cool displays and information.
