Happy Fourth of July (only 2 weeks late)! I'll catch up eventually...
John and I ran a 5K in Big Fork, phew! That's a lot faster than I normally run, maybe I should get back to doing intervals once in a while. At least it was over quickly. And now we have done a race in Montana:
Kathy and Bob joined us for the Big Fork parade. We love small-town July 4 parades, always something different and cute. For example, a 3-layer cake (sadly not edible):
And a calliope:
Waiting for the fire engine (no water hose fights a la Silverton, alas):
Santa on a 4-wheeler, why not?
I'm not old enough to know what this is:
Browsing curious clothing in the sporting goods store - hiking kilt, anyone?
As close to a bear as I will hopefully ever get (by the way, no new bear sightings to report to date):
Back in our neck of the woods near Columbia Falls... we had to experience "The Vortex" which promised to show us "a genuine quantum or gravitational anomaly that may re-define the laws of physics and nature." Something different!
Our tour guide showing us that the cement pad is level:
I'm not normally at eye level with John:
That's more like it (wish I had been sure to stand up straight for this one):
Kathy and Bob's turn:
The tilted house was our favorite part, goofing around with the ladder, a marble rolling "uphill," other fun things to play with:
Bob standing on the wall ladder:
The garden labyrinth:
The incredible shrinking/growing bench!
Or maybe it's us that are shrinking!
Too much fun :)
