High Five for Friday

I am waay late with my post today, but that's because I had such a great Friday! Ya-hoo!! My dad, husband, D and I went up to McDonald Pass, which is this great national park/vista/hiking trail system about 20 minutes from our house. We had just planned to go do a little recon for a horseback riding trip my parents are going on tomorrow, but we ended up walking around for a bit. It was absolutely breathtaking! I can't wait to do some serious camping, and to see the mountains covered in snow! And obviously, we had an impromptu photo shoot :)

And of course, D had a great time riding on Pappy's shoulders!!

It went from being about 80 degrees to being about 50 degrees practically overnight, so when I saw this hat at Target, you know it was necessary. This picture has made me smile all week!

He is enjoying living out in the country so much. He loves to watch the horses, dogs and cats, and gets sooo excited. He also is very interested in all the different plants- he loved this flower!

That's about it for this week...not even five things! Epic H54F fail. But, we're having a great time here, and feel like things are falling into place! A couple of great things happened this week (that I can't share here quite yet!) so I feel a little less overwhelmed than I did right after we got here. We are finding our groove, getting to know our way around town, and loving just how friendly everyone is- aside from the road rage, that is. I have a theory that everyone in Montana is so kind because they take all their anger out while driving!

We have some great things planned for this weekend; heading to the Farmer's Market, and trying a new church! I am super excited to find a church family, I think that will make all the difference in us feeling at home here. 

I hope everyone has a great weekend!!
