Home Coming

Julie and Drake made their way back to Bozeman this week (Bob "got stuck with" stand up paddle boarding out on the lake)!  And right on their heels came Tofer and Malinda and Sarah!  Can you say full house?!!  Wahooo!  Merriment, hilarity, & mirth ensued!
 We spent the Fourth out at Scott and Sadie's.  They roasted a pig, we played bags, ate watermelon salsa, listened to the band get funky & made some new friends. 
 J had Friday off and we headed for Lewis Clark Caverns State Park.  It was a hot day and perfect for going underground - once we hiked the 2 miles (a 300 foot gain at a decent incline) to the entrance.
Definitely worth it!  Such a fascinating 2 hour tour.
We needed that hike, too!  We ate like royalty all week.  Crab Stuffed Portobellas & Springroll salad, Sushi & Yaki Soba, Watermelon salsa & Sadie's green salsa, Tacos, Steaks, Salmon & Yukon gold potatoes, Pear & pine nut salad, & Black eyed pea salad ... Oh, yah - we like to eat!
Every day there were card games or a bit of Balderdash, Bags competitions, wine sipping, music & telling stories. 
We always come away from weeks like this completely spent but so full of gratefulness and joy.

Wonderful adventures! Balderdash is one of my own favorites. When we were traveling across the country, in the summer after college, it was a glorious relief from the heat to spend a day touring caverns, deep underground! An amazing world below us.
