The Stratton Visit

Short but sweet. After lots of texts and working through schedules, our friends made a way to come see us on their way to a wedding in Washington. I felt so blessed! They arrived the afternoon our other friends left, and we enjoyed some fish tacos and lots of catching up!

Boba loves when friends bring their dogs! She and Maverick had a blast exploring the yard!

The one full day we had together, we headed to Tally Lake, (the deepest lake in all of Montana).

Jeff helping Malachi fix his bike. Funny story. Malachi wanted to demonstrate his bike skills for Jeff while going down the path. Jeff was recording the whole thing. Malachi was jumping higher and biking faster than I have ever seen. He went to the last jump with some extreme speed and tried to do a trick in the air. Unfortunately, upon landing on the already broken bridge, he didn’t quite come out of his trick and the bridge broke even further. Malachi tumbled to the other side, and all we could see was his wheel spinning in the air. As the 3 of us went running down the hill yelling for Malachi to tell us if he was ok, all we could hear was silence.

We got to the jump, and I was ready to see a bloody or passed out boy on the other side. Al of a sudden, Malachi stood up and yells, “Did you see THAT?!?!? I got so much air! That was AWESOME!”

We laughed so hard…

I introduced my friends to the joys of huckleberry cider, and we enjoyed a cool Montana evening outside. So thankful for such wonderful friends!

I love the color orange, summer fruit, crisp fall evenings, snow-covered mountains, and spring flowers. I LOVE my Jesus, my family, and my home... all things craft-related, cooking, and creating make me smile. You can often find me coloring on my walls with chalk, waltzing through Trader Joe's looking for the monkey with my little ones, dancing through our house to blasting worship music, or blogging while sipping coffee.
