Story told by: Lainey
We went to visit the Strickler family in Montana for a few days over Spring Break this week! Daddy had to work, so it was just us and Mommy.
It is close to a six-hour drive, so we got to watch our Kindles in the car. Mommy used a high-tech baggie to attach them to the seat in front of us.
We were going a little stir crazy by the time we reached Sandpoint, Idaho, so Mommy gave us ten minutes to play on a playground.
As usual, Henry took no time at all to find something tall to climb.
He took about ten seconds to conquer it.
When we arrived at the Strickler’s house, we were thrilled to find lots of snow!
We had our snow pants on before Mommy had even finished unloading the car.
After going to sleep, we were all up bright and early (Mommy wants me to be sure to tell you that it was SUPER DUPER early) to play with toys! Oliver and Henry had a blast with these nerf guns.
Darcee made a delicious pancake breakfast!
And then we were outside by 8:30 a.m. for more playing in the snow!
I worked hard on fine-tuning the snow fort.
You’ll hear over-tired Brody in this video. Ignore that, and pay attention to the fun we’re having.
Otis was a lot of fun this trip!
We would have loved to stay outside all day long, but we did come in a couple of times to thaw out.
Mommy wanted a picture of her and Darcee to document that they did exist on this trip.
We brought some fun games to play with their family.
We drove home today. Brody stayed awake the entire drive, but after stopping at Safeway in Pullman for a few groceries, he fell asleep for the final ten minutes of the drive home. Thank you, Stricklers, for a great few days in Montana! Can’t wait to see you guys again!
