Brian's visit

My brother Brian was just here to visit for a week. He lives in Montana, so we don't get to see him often. We were able to meet up with him this Spring at my mom's house in Arizona for a quick weekend, but it's been a while since we had a good chunk of time with him.

The kids LOVE their Uncle Brian. We had so much fun getting out and doing things and also just staying home and talking. I'm so grateful for my brother!

While he was here we: ate at a few fun places that he doesn't have in Bozeman, talked him into getting a pair of Crocs (yes!), played at Sky Ranch, went to the library, went to a high school football game, spent a day out at Dave and MaryBeth's, visited IKEA and played some cards with friends.

We spent his last full day here out at Sky Ranch. We played mini-golf, jumped on the jumping pillow and swam in the party pool. It was a refreshing, relaxing way to spend our last day together and we all had a great time! :)

Now I'm busy plotting a trip to Bozeman to visit Brian next Spring or Summer. The boys and I haven't been back to Montana since we moved away, and Bridget has never even been there! I'm thinking a road trip is in order. :)

Road trips are so much fun!

I can't believe you went to IKEA again and didn't call me! Its only 5 min away :)

So glad you had a great visit . . . wish he lived closer! Wasn't he kind of thinking about re-locating here?
