I shoulda been a cowboy....

My favorite place in the entire world is {Drummond, Montana}. It's a tiny little town on your way into Missoula (which is where I was born). If you blink, you'll miss it... I promise. The population of this little place is around {400 people} (not including livestock)! Anyway, my grandparents live there on about 50 acres. I love to go and pretend to be a {cowboy} for a couple days. It was still SOOOOO cold while we were there so we didn't get to spend a ton of time outside but we did have a good time. My kids {loved} the horses and loved to "throw rocks in the water"! On the day we left, it finally warmed up and melted all the snow. Of course!

The best part about these trips though is the time I get to spend with my {sassy, swearing, old} gram! Mary is truly one of a kind! I love her to the stars and back. She's seriously hysterical! In the picture with Hiley in the sink you can see her on the left. Anyway, we had a really good time and can't wait to get back and play again!



Us in Missoula having lunch at Hoagieville! It has the most amazing hoagie sandwiches and cheese fries!



Hiley would not take a shower for some weird reason while we were there so we had to bathe her in the sink!

I think anyone who has had a chance to be in Montana would feel the same way...I too have a grandma in Montana and everytime I visit I always daydream about what it would be like to live like a "cowboy" in Montana! Looks like you guys had fun!
