We visited West Yellowstone, drove to Mesa Falls and went horseback riding. (Not Me and Doug. We cheered for Logan while he rode and then took Brookie and Logan back to the house.)
An unnamed grandson, newly toilet trained and VERY grossed out by the out houses, was pleased to go to the bathroom on the trees. (Funny how boys are boys.)
Logan always comments on Grandma's "Mango" when he comes over :)
#5 Elana and Layne (and Elana's sister) spent a couple of nights with us on their way back to Idaho from Arizona. They had gone to see her brother graduate from college, and have a family vacation. We were so glad to see them. We miss them.
#6 I unpacked the games I loved playing with my children, to play with my grandkids. It was great timing because Elana and Layne came for a couple of days and I had a grandson sleepover.
The other thing is my Great Grandpa's small birth book, written in German at the time of his birth in 1891.
I was surprised when a box arrived from my mom with both treasured items. These are all the gifts I want from my mom for the rest of my life. These are of enormous sentimental value to me. I am touched by her generosity and will preserve and care for them. Thank you, Mom.

And part of my Great Great Grandma's is not in the picture.
I am so happy to have this.
