Tuesday at Glacier National Park

On the Red Bus Tour we stopped for lunch at the Many Glacier Hotel, another of the historical lodgings inside the park.  There was a display in the hallway about how the glaciers are shrinking.  I had heard this before, but it was pretty dismaying to see pictures and data about it.  We stopped on […]

Montana, Day 5 – Part 1

On Day 4 in Montana, we spent the day whitewater rafting down the middle fork of the Flathead River, right in the middle of the mountains.  Absolutely breathtaking, but no pictures, of course.  Then on Day 5 – Tuesday – the old people went back to the park for a Red Bus Tour.  It was […]

Montana, Day 2 – Part 2

It took us til almost the end of the loop before we saw what we’d really been expecting, but there were the buffalo in all their glory – an entire herd by the watering hole, and several right up close to the road. Very cool. We left the Refuge, and headed over to check out […]

Montana, Day 3 – Part 1

Sunday morning in Montana Liz headed to Missoula to pick Olivia up at the airport. The rest of us headed in the same direction, but made a stop at a park on Flathead Lake that Meg & I didn’t have time to visit when we were there Friday. The views were still just so, so […]

Montana – Day Two (Canada)

Saturday, our second vacation day, we headed up across the border to Canada. Liz had arrived at suppertime the night before, and we picked Teresa up at the airport at midnight, so now we were four. We’d all planned for this & had taken our passports, so there were no problems at all. The Enterprise […]

Montana – Day One

After lots of time in the air, Meg & I arrived in Kalispell, Montana, just after midnight Thursday night – or Friday morning, I guess I should say.  Took a taxi to the motel – Meg had made reservations and arrangements for both, thank goodness, and then got up Friday morning & were ready to […]

Off to Montana

Just now getting home from Montana, and downloading a few pictures while Jeff has gone to get us some supper. After that I plan to crash big time. Jeff took this picture just as we were leaving last Thursday for him to take Meg and me to the airport. We knew the week would be […]

Day at the Museum

Today the kids & I headed to the Museum of York County to spend the day. Every summer they have a different theme for their Wednesday programs, and this year it’s Dinosaurs. Such fun. This was a station at the dinosaur maze with a zip line, about flying dinosaurs. The kids LOVED it 🙂 Another […]

Making Marinated Carrots

Mason has gotten to be such a big kid himself that, when his sister and all his cousins were chopping veggies while we were cooking today, he insisted that he could, too. I handed him a sharp knife with a little bit of trepidation, I don’t mind telling you, but sure enough, he handled it […]
