Meanwhile, Back at the Ranch

Last weekend my mother and I took what passes for a vacation around here. We loaded up my son and drove over to visit my sister in Spokane. Since my brain is still toast from the trip and trying to catch up on work when I got back, I'm going to settle for posting a few random pictures rather than trying to write something coherent.

First pit stop is always at East Glacier, Montana for Pepsi and snacks.

My sister's back yard. I guess there's a reason people want to move to Spokane.

I took a side trip to Pullman, WA and Washington State University. Being an athletic trainer, it was pretty much mandatory that I wander around and take pictures of the facilities.

The women's basketball team was playing Stanford, the number two team in the nation. One of Stanford's best players is a Montana girl, but since her parents went to that OTHER college, we'll just leave it at that.

On the way home, I risked life and limb to stop along the highway and snap this shot of Flathead Lake and the Mission Mountains.

Meanwhile, back at the ranch...

Luckily, that wasn't our only ray of sunshine. Our first baby of the year was born on Monday morning. So here we go again.

LOVE the photos! The lake is gorgeous and, um, what's with the boats? Is the water really, really low?

The picture of the Mission mountains is breathtaking.
Thanks for sharing.

I agree that the picture of the lake and mountains is gorgeous. Thanks for snapping that one.

I am glad we don't really start to calve until later. Though we have a couple new cows that have calved already. So much for being April Calvers!
