Flyin' High in Montana

There's been so much fun stuff going on since my last post, but I haven't taken the time to post like I should. 

But so many things this past weekend have brought my thoughts to my sweet grandparents, so wanted to share pictures with them. 

Grandpa, we went to the airshow in kalispell yesterday, and kids had a blast! Us adults did too, of course...we got there at 10 am and pulled out of the congested lot after 5:30.  Kids did amazing all day long!!8

The boys got to step up into a little Civil Air Patrol Cesna. It was a new one with fancy screens and got to chat with it's proud pilot. Come time to get out, they made it known they could have stayed in there forever. It was cool!

Grandma B also bought them tickets for some pretty awesome bouncy houses shaped like aircraft coolness. They went in one shaped like a navy ship and plane taking off, and also in a spacecraft shaped one. 

After the show, the Thunderbird crew came out to sign autographs, and Coy got a picture with and signature of Major Joshua Boudreaux. A local hero, Capt Jason Curtis, returned home in a Thunderbird to Kalispell, making the event even more exciting! There was also a woman Thunderbird pilot from River Falls, WI :)

Here are a few more pictures from the day; 

Wild Hair Bentley demonstrates why ear muffs are needed....the Birds were so loud...we now know why they put the word Thunder in there! 

For the rest of the evening, we played up at Ade & Anna's hilltop home. They all rode horses, played airshow, jumped on the trampoline cousin style (meaning all 9 of them at once) and wrestled till they were sweaty and stinky. ❤️ 

Then this afternoon Duane and Janette took us up to West Glacier to take a bike ride in the park. Unfortunately, a flat bike tire and a rainstorm put a damper on the riding, but we got to eat a nice dinner in the park and threw rocks in Lake McDonald after the rain ceased. The sun coming out and the mountain view was extraordinarily beautiful tonight! 

And like any good day at the pig farm, we ended the day with ice cream and stories with Papa before bed. 

Today was beautiful.
