Have you checked out my review page? I just posted about some super cute kids' shoes....
Yesterday was Diesel's birthday. He turned eight.
Anders and I made him this cake. Yes, there is a whole website for exchanging dog treat recipes. Probably more than one.
We all gathered for a party in the yard and made Diesel stand next to his cake without eating it. Aren't we a fun party crew?
Tangential sidenote: When Diesel and I started living together, I realized he didn't have a middle name *gasp* so I
insisted on "Rudyard." It's both fancy and the name of a Montana town.
When it gets hot (you know, above 80 degrees F) we need to cool off. The splash park in Belgrade, Mont. was just the ticket last week. (Park details below.)
Getting there: The splash park is in Lewis and Clark Park, right near the Central Valley Fire District Hall. West of the airport on the frontage road, at the east end of Belgrade.
* sheltered picnic tables
* barbeque grills
...he likes to ride his bike. And I may have sneaked in some footage of my perennial bed.
We finally got around to taking a beach vacation. It was just a day trip, but still a vacation. And it wasn't really a beach, since a beach is attached to an ocean or at least a sea. This sand is attached to a lake.
The boys and I spent the Fourth of July playing in the sand and splashing in the water at the Bozeman Beach in the Gallatin Recreation Area. (Details for getting there are below the photos.)
This is the perfect spot for little kids. There is plenty of sand to dig and the water is shallow a long way out. While we watched people canoeing and floating around on innertubes, I read my book and the boys wore themselves out having fun.
The pictures I took of the boys were so cute, I couldn't decide which ones to post, so I posted them all. aha ha ha ha....
Getting there: Drive north on 7th St, cross over the highway, turn right on Griffin, left on Manely Rd. and right at the signed entrance to the East Gallatin Recreation Area.
Dogs are not allowed anywhere in the park or lake.
