We are in Montana right now having a blast with our chosen family. This is just a quick post with a few pictures of what we’ve been up to, a more detailed post will come on the heels of the California trip posts.
On our way through Kennewick, WA we stopped to have a picnic. We stayed and played on the swings for a few minutes.
Lily playing with Aunt Becky‘s legos.
Two heads are better than one.
Me and Lil at breakfast at The Buffalo Cafe.
My eyeshadow <3
Lily had a stinking blast playing xbox kinect with our friends Anthony and Maggie’s son Conrad.
Last weekend we washed the car and Lil decided to do a little dance before we started.
I harvested garlic this week. I think there are around 24. Vampires beware.
We had lunch outside one day when it wasn’t tooooo hot to deal.
Apparently Lil spent a lot of time in her bathing suit this week.
Sprinkler play on Wednesday.
We went to the zoo on Sunday (still have to post pics from the last 3 trips I think) and Lil was so bummed because no butterflies landed on her. This has actually happened the last 2 times. So she was crazy pumped when this ladybug hung out with her while she was playing in the sprinkler.
More fun hair. I have wanted to braid her hair forever and was so happy that she finally let me and liked it.
We were headed out to get our hair trimmed on Tuesday, but Waldo was on a phone call so Lil didn’t get to kiss him goodbye. We took a picture for him.
The other day I asked Lil to fold some wash clothes. When she was finished she asked for more laundry to fold. I gave her a bath towel. It wasn’t folded how I would have done it, but she tried her best and that’s all that really matters.
Deep thinking at the park.
I pulled up some of my garlic. They really look good. I’m so happy.
I made some deodorant last week. It was super simple and so far works great. I didn’t have any old deodorant tubes, but I did have one large lip balm type tube so I used that and put the rest in a shallow dish. I totally expected that it would release from the dish after it was set up, I was very wrong.
The fun hair continues. I really need to work on straight parts.
Lily was hanging out in the window the other day.
This week has been fun hair week it seems. For a kid who usually won’t let me do anything with her hair but make it look nice down, this was a lot of fun.

The Doctor is checking Kittie’s chart.
NO! Bad Kitty!
The garden is going gang busters. These are the red potatoes I planted.
My Father-in-Law is trying something new with his cucumbers. Last year they took over the entire garden so we’re hoping the tomato cages help control them a little. In the background you can see my strawberries. They are growing really well, but didn’t put out much fruit.
The foreground picture is my FIL’s cantaloupe plant, the right is his tomatoes. Both are doing good, but not producing much fruit…yet.
My cutie-girl playing. There will be a post on Monday to explain the letters on the ground.
We went out to dinner with a super cute witch.
Last weekend we went to one of those serve yourself yogurt places, Lily was in heaven.
I don’t know what else to call it, but backward airplane seems to sort of work. Anyway Lil loves to stand in my hands and then once she grabs my feet I lift her up and once up in the air she lets go of my feet and sort of growls. This is her new favorite thing and she wants to do it all. the. time.
Last week she wanted me to take a picture of her doing this little trick. It was very hard to get it, but I decided to try and get a video while I was at it. My phone was laying on my belly since I didn’t have any extra hands to hold the phone. I took like 6 videos and only two were sort of ok and I decided to only share this one.
