Montana Family Vacation

Adam and I have always shared a passion for travel. When we got married we agreed that we would make sacrifices in order to get to travel (like waiting on getting a new car, living in a 1 bedroom apartment or whatever it may be). We made a bucket list of places we wanted to go and have been able to go to many of the places we dreamed of.

Thankfully God has blessed us so many times over with free trips, winnings from work, and generous family members. We have had the priveledge of traveling all over the US and world together and have made some pretty unbelievable memories. These memories are worth more to us than things and we enjoy getting to see more of God's awesome creation on our trips.

We have a travel journal and when we get back from one of our trips we try to write some of our favorite memories so that as time goes on we can look back and enjoy the memories again.

Having children has changed the way we travel (ex: more things to pack, working around nap times, adjusting to time changes) but Harper is a trooper and seems to enjoy traveling as well.

We recently got back from a trip to White Fish Montana. Montana has been a place that we have wanted to go since we visited friends that lived in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. It is a wonderfully beautiful place. The entire time we were there I just kept thinking "What will heaven be like if this is part of earth?" WOW, the grandeur and beauty just can't be described in words.

We went with Adam's entire family, 13 of us, and stayed in a beautiful house overlooking Whitefish Lake. We visited Glacier National Park (This is a must see if you visit) and rode these really cool open air buses, we hiked, went on the alpine slide, Adam went zip lining and fly fishing, ate at some yummy restaurants and took time to just rest and enjoy the time with family. The weather was a perfect 60-70 degrees every day. It was a great escape from the Texas summer heat.

Here are a few pictures of our trip:

So here is the picture of just Adam and I in Glacier National Park
