A Beautiful Place – Big Sky, MT

Once all of our guests arrived safely in Billings, we packed up and shipped out via the Moho to a cabin we’d arranged to stay in for five days in Big Sky, Montana. We rented a place called “Eagle’s Nest” in the Moonlight Basin, just across from the local ski resort. The cabin looked pretty…

A Detour Inland – Nashville, TN

From Cades Cove in the Great Smokies we headed west to Nashville to visit some old friends. We met Rob and Natalie in 2003, a decade ago, just before our wedding and just after theirs. We were youth group leaders together (Rob was the Youth Pastor) for a few years and made some great memories….

movie break

We got to go on a date last night with our lovely friends here from Arizona, Alonzo and Molly (and thank you to our fabulous and adorable babysitter, Kylie, Zephyr’s new love). We saw “Bourne Legacy,” which was not as good as the other three. Jeremy Renner was likable and less serious than Matt Damon,…
