After four kids, ten moves and nearly two decades, we are still blissfully in love (most of the time) and I found myself back in the state I was born and raised in. It has definitely been a journey. In fact, on our 18th anniversary we pulled the last of our stuff up over the pass and into Montana, leaving our surprise love, Idaho, behind. But Montana is a great place. The last best place according to some. And we fully intend to explore as much of it as we can! Join us on our continued adventure through life, love and other stuff that comes with it.

Ahhhh . . . summer

And this summer I have something I've never had before. Came home on Saturday to the best fluffy mail EVER!! Well, technically it wasn't mail because it came UPS, but STILL!!! It's the best!

We've been anxiously awaiting its arrival for a couple weeks. And Grace was so excited she couldn't wait to get it up.

(Yes, foo foo dog needs a shave--scheduled for next week.)

Brent, my loving handy-man--errrr husband, wasn't so thrilled.

He wasn't anti, but wasn't thrilled.

But nonetheless, he went and got the drill and his measuring tape.

All the while mumbling something about he should get a beer when he's done.

But honestly, even if there hadn't been beer as part of the equation, all four of his girls were SO excited that he was powerless to say no. I love that man.

Summer bliss!

And Mr. Skeptical? Well, I told him that it's a family size hammock. And he should join the family. He did. After rolling his eyes. And then after a moment, "This isn't too bad, actually."

Later: "That's actually pretty comfortable. I could see using that sometimes."

I love that man. Have I mentioned that? He usually comes around. And he hadn't even gotten that beer he was mumbling about.

If you like my hammock, check them Mine is the silk spun and it's lovely. They tied the bag with what I'm assuming is another type of rope they use for hammocks and the silk spun is divine! I'm excited to get some use out of it this summer (and many summers to come)! The kids are too.

The littlest helper. Just because she's cute. And I'm her mom. And it's my blog.

Okay. That's three reasons. But like I said, it's my blog.

Happy Summer!

Lovely pictures! You should photograph for our catalog! And thanks for plugging Twin oaks hammocks - they really are nice hammocks, I think, all biases aside. :) Take care,
