Happy Friday Party People!
We had the BEST day yesterday!
Josh had to look at a job in a little town about 2 hours away.
He suggested we all go as a family and go to the National Bison Range on the way home.
Now I have to admit, my first thought was
"National Bison Range . . . . um yeah honey . . . that sounds like fun"
Then I saw my half painted laundry room and the pile in the dining room that needed to go back into the other room we just painted, then there was the classroom that looks like a bomb went off . . . and the thought of 'losing' an entire day made my heart have irregular heart beats.
But then after a few deep breaths I came to my senses.
Days like yesterday is what it's all about.
The here and the now.
I have a dear friend who just watched her baby girl walk across the stage and receive her high school diploma.
As cliche as it sounds, this time with my baby girls is going fast!
Josh and I have decided that this summer is all about family time.
Creating those memories, making the moments that bring us closer as a family and makes this short time together special.
So ALL that to say . . .
we went and had the greatest day!
This amazing pile of sheds was at the visitor center.
Montana has the most amazing mountains!
I really thought we weren't going to see any animals,
but boy was I wrong!
We saw a brown bear with her cub, deer,
and then there were the bison.
We saw a few far off
Then we came around the corner to find this mass right off the road.
He was shy at first.
But after a family of 6 yelling
"Yo Yo Yo Buffalo!"
he shot right up and went right across the road!
Oh hello there!
The girls absolutely LOVED it!
They were glued to their windows.
We got out at a designated area and took a little hike.
It truly was an amazing day.
It was just what we needed.
So my encouragement to you is this:
it's ok to leave a messy house and make memories with your family.
It's so much MORE important than all the other things we busy ourselves with.
My half painted laundry room was waiting for me when I got home.
So after a hike with some friends this morning,
I'll get back to all those projects.
I hope you have a wonderful weekend
making sweet memories with your family!
