Ahhh, the joys of small town life! We once again went to anaconda to visit my family and were confronted with what small town life means. In the past we have been enchanted with the possibilities, but this trip left us feeling....dissatisfied.
First, it rained way too much while we were there, and we were sleeping in a tent in my parents front yard. However, it was not enough rain to keep the neighborhood raccoon from coming and investigating us in the middle of the night. Mazie didn't like that one bit!
Then when we went to take the boys bowling, we found that the businesses in town have some weird hours, like not being open until six thirty at night! So we went and fed the fish at the hatchery
and tried to get some nice photos at a park, but the boys were often not cooperating...neither was the rain!
All in all it was a good trip, but it made me realize two things. First, I miss my brothers tons and we need to do more to stay in touch. Secondly, my husband has a horrible sense of direction, he accidentally took the wrong exit near twin falls Idaho and didn't realize until we had gone almost four hours in the wrong direction. We now simply say that we took the "scenic" route!
