10: Sean: Baseball and bike Riding. I liked the open field to play baseball... Minus looking for the ball in the grass!
11: Michael: I think my favorite memory was when me and Sean rode the bikes up to Kintla Lake and back. It was so cool out when we left, we were thinking we should have brought jackets. After a few miles we were hot and sweating. I wish I could have ridden bikes around there when we were kids but those roads would have torn them up. It was fun to be able to do that with Sean , who really loved it up there.
12: Denise: I loved sitting on the porch in the late afternoons as the thunderstorms rolled past. Chris's sourdough pancakes! YUMMY! Loving that we were all together again!
13: Josh: Foosball and Fishing
18: Chris: The drive out to the indian reservation was definitely my fav. The lake was beautiful and so was the company. It was a blast throwing Sean's B-day party out in the woods. On the way back out we sang along with James Taylor and Carole King What an awesome and unexpected experience. | Patrick: That lightening bolt blew my socks off even though I didn't see it. At least I got to see all the faces of those who saw it. And that was a fine consolation as the Kelley's are the finest family a person could ask for. Thank you everyone for such a fun trip.
19: Emily : The lighting striking the ground, the freezing cold mountain we went on, going on a million mile walk! Polebridge baked goods, all the deer, but no bears, trying to fish, making up stories, playing out in the fields, marshmallow roasting with giant marshmallows. | Zach: I would probably say, walking to the mercantile thinking it wouldn't be too bad of a walk. All just to get a brat sandwich. Then when we finally got there we had to start walking back - an eternity, but thankfully were saved. haha!
20: Avery: The most pleasant memory I have of our trip to Montana would have to be the many times I felt great sense of peace in this place of quiet and simplicity. I was also glad to have shared this time with my extended family of which was necessary and long over due. One thing that stands out in my mind, would be the afternoon we spent together around the bonfire in the front yard; the scenery and the overall feeling of comfort and tranquility is something that I will remember forever.
21: Fishing down at the river and catching two fish in a row!

23: My favorite memories are sitting on the porch at McFarlands visiting with my beautiful family and enjoying the breath taking mountain scenery. Love, Dad | Thanks Dad For making this trip possible!!
