Montana Fun

Here are some pictures and video of our time so far here in Thompson Falls Montana.  Cora and I are visiting my family (parents, grandma, sister, brother-in-law, and nephew John) while Jason toils away back in Portland.  We miss him, but this type of arrangement works well in that I can take nice leisurely visits with my family while not eating up his vacation days.

So far Cora has spent lots of good time with Grammy and Grampy.  They have been busy doing some big gardening/yardwork chores, so Cora has had plenty of fun playing in the dirt and trying to pull up flowers.  So far all the flowers (and the cats) have survived her attentions.  Cousin John spent the day with us today since his parents were busy.  Cora likes John and he is a super sweet kid but she doesn't quite know what to do with all his attention so she spent a good portion of the day crying.  Eh well.  When he was distracted, she would creep over close to him, hold out her hand, and say ticka-ticka-ticka at him.  She was also bummed when he took a nap and she was by herself.  She pushed his door open a couple of times to make sure he was there, then when we closed the door better, she sat right outside it eating her goldfish for quite some time.

After nap, she was in a better mood and both kids went for tractor and wagon rides with Grampy.  Uncle Jason came over for dinner , then after he took cousin John home, Cora went for a dip in the pool...this time with no crying, but plenty of pool water drinking -- in fact, I had to stop her for fear that I would have a sick kid on my hands later and she kept burping so loud that Grammy could hear her from clear over on the porch.  Good times!  Guess we'll have to see what tomorrow has for us in the way of adventure...
