Light the NightJared hosted his 2nd annual "Light the Night" party the night before we left for Montana. I'm not much of a party person but I have to admit, this was a lot of fun. We had about 120 people show up (including kids). Other than being a little short on food, I think everyone had a great time. When Jer announced the finale all the kids started chanting, "Light the night, light the night". Jared wanted to tell a little story about how it all began but the chanting was so loud he couldn't get a word in so he decided to just skip the story and finish off the fireworks. Thanks to all who came! We enjoyed your company and look forward to seeing you all next year!!!

Vacation to Plains, MT
I absolutely love this place!!! I'm sure people thought my kids were crazy when they said we were going to the beach in Montana. Montana-Beach? Yep, it's true. This place is like a little paradise in the middle of nowhere. It's a tiny town surrounded by mountains with a big, beautiful river and a beach within walking distance of their house. What more could you want!?!! Every time Jer and I go to Plains, we leave wanting to move there. It's so beautiful and the lifestyle is so much more relaxed and laid back. We went for a bike ride every morning and every night. During the day we floated down the river and went to the beach. We saw TONS of deer, petted all sorts of animals, watched Uncle Larry saw down a tree, went for a drive up the mountains sitting in lawn chairs in the back of a pick-up. Sure can't do that here! We can't thank my aunt and uncle enough for letting us invade their home and feed and entertain us all week long. We sure did have fun!!!
