Clark Fork Rafting

We spent another amazing July 4th weekend rafting and camping in Montana's Alberton Gorge.  Great family and friends always make the trip memorable.  This year we had warm weather, great rapids and lots of fun. 

This year we mixed it up with a little cliff jumping.

There were plenty of kids to be found playing and enjoying each other.

A few of the favorite non-river activities included archery and pine cone launching

Thanks to everyone who joined us and made it such a great trip!
And thanks to Verna for some of the photos!

The color decision was made and I have started painting the farmhouse!  Rosemary was kind enough to volunteer her help and we began the project today.  We were able to paint three sides of the house (none of the garage) with one coat. Right now it looks like lipstick red which is not what we wanted.  With a little drying and another coat, it should look like this beautiful color:

Behr Dozen Roses

Tomorrow... a second coat, maybe some trim paint and possibly some red on the garage!
