As usual, Clint came to hunt and it was Marion's turn to come with him this time! We had such a fun week with them here. Their much anticipated arrival was met with squealing, jumping, and lots of hugs. Here Q and J give Uncle Clint a welcome tackle.
We got some snow so the Texas cousin got to have a little snow fun!
This is a paper Nolan wrote in school.....
I left to go to the gym and came back to these 2 jokers who were both dead asleep.
We went for a walk one afternoon and got to enjoy the snow with warmer temperatures. Meanwhile Uncle Clint was out looking for a bear.
A game of cousin telephone.
Kanyon playing telephone is hilarious for a billion reasons.
I'm pretty sure this was a structure Jaylie built for Balloony to stay in, complete with a sign that says
One evening me and Clint took Marion, Q, and Juney out to the ranch to see if we could call up a coyote. These pictures should give you a pretty good hint as to why we didn't see any animals....
They all got to blow on the call, look through the binoculars, and eat some snacks. So other than the actual animal part, the hunt was a complete success.
Sweet little cousins snuggled up.
Clint struck out on a bear this time, but he did kill this White Tail the last day.
As Clint and Marion's trip was coming to an end, the second half of the party was just beginning. We were all headed to Texas for Thanksgiving. We had fun traveling together...
Boarded and ready....I will take this opportunity to tell American Airlines that I love them and they have made so many things so much easier for us by starting their direct flights from Billings and Bozeman to DFW. The prices were way higher at first, but now they are as equally unreasonable as the ones that have layovers (which usually end in disaster for us) so we are SOOOOOOOO thankful to have these direct flights!
klp assumes his travel position pretty quickly...
He did wake up for a little snack
Made it to DFW and waiting for our car! Great group of travelers!
In all the craziness of the fun week and trying to get packed up to leave for Texas, we forgot to take a porch picture! Roselyn saved the day by drawing us a porch picture! It may be my favorite porch picture ever!!!
