Summer Vacation

Summer vacation is hmmmmmmm, non-existant for me this year but I did manage to sneak away for a quickie trip to Montana for Gavin to spend the summer with his grandparents.  So here are a few pictures from my/our quick trip.
Fog the morning I left to go home
Destruction in Billings from the Tornado that we caught on Sunday- Father's day
Flowers on the side of the road
More tornado damage in Billings
More flowers on the roadside

Gavin playing in the park in Choteau
Antler Stack
Deer in a field off Lover's Lane

This is all that is left from where we grew up as children, I took Gavin here to show him.

Fields of flowers

Gavin sleeping on the way up

Wyoming clouds

This is the hail damage that we sat in north of Billings during the tornado

Start of summer adventures

So the other day, Gavin and I went for a drive and saw a sign for a "waterfall". So thought we would take a look-- well I was surprised to find it was a mausoleum-- oops! But here are some pictures I took before I realized that we might be trespassing, as I didn't ask permission really!

Cloudy view of Cheyenne Mt

So tonight after pulling weeds I thought I would take some picts of the sky, looked really cool!  So hope you enjoy!

June Already?

Ok, ok!  I thought I had the jump on things and then it has all snowballed and I am again into a new month and can't recall where the last one went.
So I missed my sis's anniversary-- Sorry Sis! (presently you are lucky I can't find a pict of you and your darling hubby).
So I have been overly busy with work, meetings and such pretty much every week on top of my regularly scheduled shifts.
Rob has been great about helping with the house and even has his "office/man-cave" just about done.

 Panning for cool rocks

Look at the snow
 Gavin freezing in his shorts it was only 30 degrees at the top and almost 90 when we were back in the Springs

 More snow
 As you can tell Gavin is getting either bored or angry/tired!


 My tired little bug!
We did on a rare chance all have the day off together and we took a trip to the Peak which was beautiful.  Gavin panned for rocks and then the boys came home and bought a rock polisher and have been trying to shine rocks for a week plus now.
