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.

Meeting old friends

Like quite a few people these days, I meet people in cyber space.  People from around the country and around the world.  And many times, I'm lucky enough to meet them in person.  Recently at the babywearing conference I met a whole slew of them and it was amazing.

A few years ago this mama, Tracey, and I hooked up and we worked together to design an awesome website.  It was seriously the coolest website on the planet.  She's a fellow babywearer and lives on the other side of the country.  (That's Castle Geyser going off in the background if you are wondering.)

But this summer, just a couple weeks ago, she and her family came to Yellowstone.  And she's awesome enough that even in my uber-pregnant state I dragged my three kiddos up to Yellowstone to meet them.  (And she was aweseome enough to actually let us know she was in our neck of the woods!)

You know how it is sometimes when you are meeting someone for the first time and you wonder if they are going to be lame or awesome?  I had no doubt how awesome Tracey and her family would be.  We met at Old Faithful and walked the boardwalk out to Morning Glory Pool.  The weather wasn't too hot, it was overacast and there was a breeze.  Perfect for this pregnant mama to walk and talk at the pace of the kids--which isn't very fast unless they all decide to RUN back.  Which they did.  And they had a blast together--always a good thing! 

And then they had ice cream.  Well, we all had ice cream, actually.  It was yummy.  And it was made even yummier with the great company.

Sometimes it's nice to actually meet an old friend.  To Tracey and her family, it was fabulous meeting you!   Come back any time! 

(And, if anyone is looking for a graphic/web designer for a project, get a hold of her.  She's super talented on top of being super nice.  One of those folks I don't hesitate recommending!)

Likewise, mama, likewise! :D It was definitely a big highlight of the trip for me, and you were even cooler than I knew you would be!
