Guess what I found?

The Camera Cord!!!!!!!!!!!!

So here are some of the pictures mising from previous posts!

These first few are from one of our Sunday drives...this is the kind of stuff we literally stumble upon. I always want to "drive up a mountain" so Kevin finds random roads and this is what we see:

Daddy and his girls...I can't believe they're all looking at the camera!

CC LOVES to wash the dishes, she asks me to do it every day...and what kind of Mother would I be if I didn't let her explore her domestic intrests...haha

The best purchase EVER...Ry loves this thing:

REALLY trying to crawl:

My beautiful birthday presents (Trev & Sophia sent me some awesome presents too and I loved the paper but I didn't get a picture...bad Erin) from my parents and Hunt, tulips from CeCe and a card from Sabrina.

The infamous chocolate cake...this was RIGHT after I took it out of the oven. I think I was pulling it out with one hand and taking my first bites with the other. I'm not even kidding.

Trying really hard to get a picture of the snow on my birthday

I look kind of crazy in this picture...maybe it's because I'm 28 now. We were trying to get the snow again.

Our drive last weekend...Kevin pulled off the side of the road so Cierra and I could feel if the water was cold or not. It was. But can yall believe that this is what's off the side of the road here? I can't even begin to describe how beautiful it is. On this particular drive I was asking Kevin why more people don't live in's breathtaking. You can read my post from yesterday to find out the reason why I think more people don't live here. haha

Ok, this is the we're heading down the road and there's a sign that says "Garnet Ghost Town" and there's an arrow pointing to this small what else do you do when you happen upon a ghost town? Well you check it out of course!!!!!!!! It was 11 miles up a winding mountain road so it took about 30 min to get to it. This house was on the way up...there was a historical marker thing explaining that this used to be a mining area (Garnet Mountain) and they built a small cabin in this area for the fire watcher to sit for look out and check for forest fires. They've since made a newer cabin and it's used as a refuge for snowmobilers who run into bad weather. The cabin has fire wood, matches and a wood burning stove. So I guess if you like to ride snow mobiles in the woods I'd suggest you do it in relative proximity to this cabin...just in case.

The most amazing view in the history of views. They called this a "scenic point"...understatement of the century.

Cierra checking out the ghost town.

This is on the drive back down the mountain...amazing.

OK, I'm definitely coming to visit. In the summer, of course. I reckon (a little Texas for you) that come the full force of winter, you will know why more people don't live in Montana.

It's beautiful there and I must say I am jealous of your views!!!
