I barely had time to throw in a quick braid and get the kids out the door for a picture and the bus was here! Luckily it comes right into our driveway.
Lewis and Clark Caverns and saw lots of great cave formations.
After that we headed over to Virginia and Nevada Cities to explore the old gold rush towns.
Sunday we went and did the self tour of the old Montana State Prison, which parts of were very creep and said to be haunted. We didn't have any ghostly encounters. I am not sad about that. They also had an old car museum at the prison. The kids thought they were being tortured looking at all the cars.
Monday we headed back towards home and made a stop at the very fabulous Museum of the Rockies and took in two planetariums shows and looked at as many exhibits as the kids could handle.
Our final stop was the Grizzly Bear Encounter place right outside of Bozeman, MT. There were two bears out while we were there and they were very active. The guy at the place was full of great tips and information on bears.
We also made a random stop somewhere along the way at a lake to play around and practice skipping rocks across the water.
Fun times. One last little hurrah before school started.
I also didn't run at all on vacation. I don't even feel bad about it. I kind of wanted the whole weekend to be all about spending time with the kids. Now here I sit in an empty house and have lots of time on my hands to run and workout. Feels strange.
I admit I took this whole week off. The first part of the week I wanted to just have to spend time with the kids and the rest of the week is all for me. HAHAHAHA!
