MONTANA

I think this has been my summer of vacations. John and I made a trip to Montana to see my Aunt Darcie and Uncle Dennis. John had been to MT once a long time ago, so he definately enjoyed the drive. We drove throught ID and a place called Island Park. Island Park is BEAUTIFUL! He decided someday we have to have a cabin there.


While we were in MT we spent time the family Grandpa and Darla were there, also Andrea and the boys came to spend the night, and Erick as well. We played a lot of cards and had a lot of late nights. It is so much fun to get all the family together. John was definatley initiated into the family. We also played golf on Friday ( it was my first time and I LOVED IT!!) It was so nice to get away from the fast paced life that we have here, and go somewhere that is so mellow. I would love to live in MT it is gorgeous there. The winter is pretty tough, but the summer makes it worth it.

So on the way home we stopped at Bear World near Rexburg, ID. It is a wild animal park that you drive through and there are elk and wolves and obviously lots of bears just wandering around. They show you a bunch of pictures with the bears climbing into truck beds and standing on cars, they have broken through windows. I was pretty nervous since we were driving my new car through the park, but we survived with no bear encounters. Its so weird to drive by a bear 2 feet away from ya though. It was so hard to get a good picture because they told you don't stop your car because that is what interests them and thats when they come and jump on your car. So my pictures don't show how cool it really was. The park also had a petting zoo and they had 6 baby bears that you could bottle feed. We didn't feed them but we watched and it was so cute. I definately recommend stopping in next time ya drive by.
