Tree got home safe and sound last week. However, I am currently sucking at this whole adult thing, so I am just now getting photos up. Big fat apologies to my awesome partner who literally made my kiddos day.

My daughter is in first grade, and when I signed up, my partner agreed to tailor the whole box for her. This was all part of my goal to get her to learn more about other places. So here we go!

Box opening...

And happy to see Tree in her new skirt!

Very carefully reading the card. She read it all by herself with no help.  Cheesy

One of two things that tied for her favorite in the box, a tie-dye tee. She LOVES tie dye and wore it the next day to "show all her friends".

Her other fave thing was a kinder surprise egg. There is no picture of the egg because she INHALED it, but here was the toy inside.

The awesome album. It has sooo many cool pictures and brochures from everywhere she went. I am super jealous Tree got to see Chihuly glass.

Eamea also shared her favorite book from her childhood (so sweet!! <3 ) as well as a bag made from fabric she picked up in Egypt.

Tree was lucky enough to have the opportunity to sit with a master portrait artist, Eamea's niece.

She also got a new wardrobe. The St. Louis Blue shirt was a funny surprise. Three years ago, my husband went to St. Louis and watched them play. It is the only pro hockey game he has ever been to. We still ahve his souvenier cup from the game.  Cheesy We also got a magnet from Scotland. Tree got to go to friggen SCOTLAND!!!

Lola also got a button up shirt turned apron (cool!) and a new pillowcase just for camping.

I think it is safe to say we got a great partner, and both Little Visitors had a great time. Smiley

Ugh, I am so sad/mad at myself!! I COMPLETELY missed the mini 12 days sign up.  Cry

I am not a big fan of the stocking swap, but I will be keeping my eye out for something else Christmas themed.

I have been really behind sharing pics too! BUT Aurora has been having a grand time.

Mid July, her and I went to Tippet Rise, a new place where sculpture has been installed on a working ranch. You can do walking tours, bus tours or attend live musical performances. We hiked nearly seven miles together, then listened to a non-traditional percussion performance that it turned out two of my friends were part of. Here, she is pictured taking in an Alexander Calder sculpture.

On the way home, we got food at a summer must-stop, the Fort Rockvale Quick Stop. She stopped and talked to the resident bears and than we shared jalapeno poppers and a huckleberry shake.

During MontanaFair, I did a live paint. She came along to supervise the setup.

Last week, we also took a trip to my home state of South Dakota. On the way, we stopped in Deadwood at Chubby Chipmunk. They have the BEST, massive, luster-dust covered chocolates. I sadly did not realize the pic turned out so blurry. Sad

Of course, we had to stop at Wall Drug. For the food and jackalopes.

Through a change of plans, we also ended up at my favorite clothing shop in the whole world.

Thankfully, now that school has started, I think everything is going to calm down a bit. We still have some fun cool things to go do, but (hopefully) I will be better at posting pics in the home stretch. Smiley

Can I just say I am SUPER jealous Tree got to see Chihuly glass??

Aurora has had a more mellow few weeks since backpacking. She has been helping me declutter my house in preparation for a new puppy. But soon we will be packing up to head out on one last trip! &#128516;

I will share some new pics his afternoon when I am not on my phone.

I am so jealous of Tree right now...that shop looks awesome!!

Aurora has been having fun as well. Two weeks ago, she came with us on a family camping trip to Emerald Lake.

She also stopped with us at the Fishtail General store to get food and a gift to bring home after her travels.

Just this past weekend, she also went backpacking. My husband and I hiked up to Blue Lake in the Crazies. Here we are surveying the part of the trail we already covered.

She also approved of the very small tent.

And a view from (almost) the top. We started at 6,500 feet elevation and topped out at 8,300. This picture was taken around 8,000 feet. The bottom of the valley where the trees turn into a field is where the truck was parked.

Our summer had a slow start because of so many things we had to stay home for. And kiddos getting sick too. :/ But now we finally get to go CAMPING! Aurora was helping us load last night. Looking at this picture now, I am realizing I should've backed up more for context. But here she is sitting in the doorway of the camper. She is so excited, she spent all night in the truck waiting. Smiley

We will be out of contact for several days. But we will have TONS of pics when we return next week. And hopefully some cool treasures, too.

Aurora was a super helper this past week. There is a park right across from our house and for ten weeks in summer, Monday through Friday, they give free lunch to every kid 18 and under. Since I take both kids nearly every day, I wanted to add something to it. So I gathered up books, sorted them into bins and have been giving them away to the kids during lunch. My little visitor was a book ambassador!

She may have also done some reading herself. Smiley

After this week, she will be CRAZY busy. Two or three camping trips, a trip to my grandparents cattle ranch, an art auction, an art fair, day trip to a sculpture garden...plus whatever we do in between. I may have to make her a little backpack. Smiley

Well, Aurora had a strong start with us, and than illness struck. Me, my husband and both kids went through a varying combination of sinus infections, ear infections, mystery stomach bugs and migraines. That led us to a total of three doctors appointments and one ER visit. BUT we are all feeling 100% now, and Aurora is reaping the benefits.

Last Friday (when Eric and L were still sick), I grabbed Q and Aurora and hit garage sales. Look at all the books she helped me find!

Kindergraten ended last week, so Tuesday we had a fun day out and about. We started at the children's museum. All of us really enjoyed this sand table. There was a projection on it with a relief map that changed as the sand moved. We all built little islands together.

We also went out to lunch at my favorite place. Aurora got to share with all of us: chicken quesadilla, mac and cheese and a thai wrap.

She also got to take in local art at the table. We did go to the library and garden center as well, but she was napping in the car. But there will be pics tomorrow when she goes to the bookmobile

I am glad to see Tree has been having lots of fun. She loves deer, so I am happy she was able to spot one there. Smiley I think both our LVs are gonna have a great summer.
