Montana Road Trip

We have been on vacation for the past 11 Days. I have so much to post!!! I am sure this will take me several days... we had such a great time!

To start the trip off, Niel and I headed to Montana to pick up the boys. Niel and I love road trips. There is so many beautiful creations to see, plus we enjoy the time together. Montana marked some more wonderful memories in our book. The sites were incredible. The pictures don't even do it justice.

We stayed at a quaint Bed and Breakfast in Missoula Montana. The Gibson Mansion was a very historical and Victorian place to stay. The people who owned it were super nice. We really enjoyed the experience!!

Niel and I took the scenic, less traveled road just for a little fun. We didn't realize that the roads were dirt roads and there was no towns, gas stations, or even cars and people. It was me, Niel, the open roads..... and no gas. We drove in panic for about 45 miles when we realized we might be stranded and have to walk quit a ways.... luckily we landed in a small town, with one gas pump. How long as it been since you have seen gas pumps like this? The lady who was running the place had to get her binoculars out from inside the store to read the dollar amount we owed for gas. Talk about a small town.

It has been ages since I have seen a phone booth like this! Where does Super Man change into his super hero clothes these days? .... I guess Montana. The place was very historical in many ways!!! We had a great time!

Don't you love to travel with your sweetheart? I knew you were gone because we went to get our haircut and Brooke and your dad told us you had gone to Hawaii. I LOVE HAWAII! It is my all-time favorite vacation spot. We have plans to go for spring break next March. Looking forward to your report on the rest of your vacation!

Good thing you took pictures of these relics. You might not see them again. Good to have you back
