Montana cont...





Every time we come here we go up a mountain on a road called "Going to the sun" I think thats what its called. It's called that because you keep going and going and going up. It is the prettiest drive I have ever seen. Its scary though. Its 2 lanes and you are literally driving next to the cliff. In one of the pictures you can see the car mirror and the side wall and I can look out the window and see all the way down the mountain. The first time we went up there I was so nervous to look out the window. Adams knuckles were white by the time we got to the top from driving. But going up you see a lot of wild life. This trip we saw a moose, dear, a ram and mountain goats. The kids loved it. Once you get to the top you see a field of wild flowers well actually this time we saw snow but it was still so pretty. I never thought mountains were very pretty to look at until we came here. That one picture of Adam and I, thats the wall that divides us from the edge. Some places have smaller walls. It gets pretty scary. So if your afraid of heights don't go but if you love the thrill you'll love it. The veiw is worth the drive though. In the 2nd to last picture if you look closely by the river you'll see a road next to it. Thats the road we drive up on and we weren't even all the way to the top yet!

Nik,
Oh we are so sad we weren't with ya'll. Ty couldn't get time off of work, plus the last couple of months have been slow, so he has to play catch-up now, which sucks cause he is working late nights. You looked like you had a blast, I love the pictures and would love to have been right next to you and the kids. We all miss you tons. Jack is constantly asked for his cousins and sometimes draws funny family portraits with them in them, it's cute. We hope you will be able to come down in a few weeks for the blessing, but we totally understand if you can't. Thanks for posting the pics and the funny stories, those are always the best. miss and love ya, Deb
