Montana Trip Part 2

The Phillips' cousin Barrett got to town the same day we did. He is there for the next month working and helping out. Here are the 4 of them ending the day with Mario Kart. Always. (Clint, Tye, Kory, Barrett)

Something was getting fixed at the shed, so me and Kanyon went down to can fully see the baby roll on my tummy.
Ahhh the rake needing a little fixing so Wes and Kory are all over it...we just observed to make sure they did it right.

This was the day that was the best because Sydni, Sayler and Hayven came!!!! We hadn't gotten to see our newest niece and I couldn't WAIT to get my hands on her. She is the cutest thing you've ever seen. Here are the 3 grandkids piled in the car. We went up to the Snowy Mountains to check on the cows in the summer pasture. A guy that had done some fencing for them said he saw 200 elk, so that was our hope, but we saw 0. But we had LOTS of fun! Aren't they cute all piled in there.

Kanyon found THIS in Hayven's car seat and decided to chew on it as if it were HIS!!! AHHHH!

Once we got up there, it didn't take long for the boys to find something that needed fixing. This time it was a gate.

As we drove around checking on everything, klp ended up in Chief's lap and let me tell you he wanted the WHEEL! No sitting and watching for him.

Taking a break to say hello to those 2 lovely ladies

Back to the driving...

Just a pic from the top of where we went. I think I take this picture every time I'm up there, but I can't help it!

Cousins! I have to say that I don't know if I've ever seen Kanyon react to someone the way he reacted to Sayler. Its not their first time to see each other, but its the first time since Kanyon is up and about. He LOVED her. He followed her all over the house squealing and giggling at everything she did. She was SOOO sweet to let him "tag along" and play with him. She is my favorite 3 year old in the whole world!!!!!!!!!

Nothin' hits the spot after a long day workin' on the ranch like a hamburger. Kanyon wants our food SOOOO BAD but when he gets it he panics and gags and freaks because I guess he doesn't know what to do with it. Here Kory is letting him lick his burger. Ha Ha!

The Phillips Boys: Clint, Kory, Kanyon, and Tye
One evening we went up the mountain behind their house to check out a HUGE fencing project they finished. They had a fire up there over a year ago so we saw some of that that we hadn't seen on the last trip.

Here is part of the burnt/cleaned out area
This is another picture I take everytime we're on our way down from the mountain. It was starting to get dark, so they aren't too good.

On our way down we ran into a group of turkeys. There were tons of little babies with them and they were so cute! I tried so hard to get a good picture, but it was getting too dark. If you look close you can see a couple of the hens.

Another must-take picture

We got home just in time to beat the next little storm rolling in.

This was one evening out at Tye's place. It came a DOWNPOUR while he and Kory were trying to move some cows. Then we saw this gigantic rainbow. We could see the end of both ends and there was double rainbow but you can't see the other one in this picture.

Right up there with Sayler is Cooper, Tye's dog. Kanyon really enjoyed him!
We get to do some of this if it rains! I love this picture! Everyone enjoying a morning game, newspaper, etc.

klp with Uncle Tye. We all love Uncle Tye. He's such a good uncle to all 3 of the little ones.

Susan makes the yummiest Cinnamon rolls....I don't think they even lasted 24 hours once they were out of the oven. Kanyon wanted to taste them, so Chief perched him right up there by them and he poked his fingers around and licked them over and over. I'm sure everyone else appreciates that, but Chief and Kanyon sure did have fun!

Stay tuned for ONE MORE instalment of our Montana Trip!
