Back from Montana!!

Monday, August 17, 2009

I am back!
But I have a confession to make. I didn't want to leave Montana!
I knew it would be magnificent. It was. That is one state that will not let you down. I took 363 pictures while there, but haven't gotten them all sorted out yet! So, here are a few pictures I snapped in Pennsylvania (the first leg of our journey) where we left our dog and [my husband's] daughter with Grandma! I thought I truly was rooted to New England. Now I am not so sure. Whitefish anyone? Let's just say two weeks is not long enough for a Montana affair.

My husband's daughter calls her grandmother Ma Toot Toot because when she was a baby, Brandon's mother would visit from PA by arriving on a train. The name has stuck! Even I call her Ma Toot Toot! Her real name is Hannah. These are some prickly pear growing in her garden. Cactus in Pennsylvania? Seeing is believing!

This is the house my husband grew up in. I think it is very charming.

Ahh look! Ma Toot Toot and ten year old Kestrel!

Next up: a few vacation shots that will make you drool for big sky country.
