Sorry Jason, I "had" to go...

I'm in Helena for a conference this week.

The drive up promised to be nasty. The forecast said 5-10" of spring snow and before I left town the steady rain had turned to a downpour of white. Fortunately, it behaved like rain all the way through the Bozeman pass. The turn at Three Forks put me on dry roads for the rest of the drive.

However will I manage?!

Surely,  I will return home smarter & well rested.

Freedom... none too soon, she says!

From this...

To this...

In no time at all. 

Congratulations Lou! You're a great driver. You know that's the truth because I trust you to drive my other children and my car!

Easter 2016

Well, Easter came and left without so much as a single picture of my people...

The family Easter basket was sufficient, if not exciting. It held a little candy for each of us, a 2000 piece jigsaw puzzle for a rainy afternoon, and the Charlie Brown movie.

Uncle Eddy and Grandpa Tom came to dinner. Again, nothing exciting to report (hence, no pictures)! We just grilled hot dogs and hamburgers.

The entire day might have passed for any ol' Sunday afternoon except for...

This masterpiece is courtesy for Grandpa Paul. Every Easter he builds one of these bad boys much to the delight of the grandkids. Instead of dinner at their house this year, Grandpa & grandma headed to Auntie Sara's and took an awesome bunny cake along. Because grandparents are known to spoil grandkids, my kids did not go without. Grandma & grandpa dropped our bunny cake off, along with some goodie bags, en route to Sara's. Lucky kids!
