We met Andrew and extended family in Whitefish Montana July 10th for a family reunion. Whitefish is quite a ways from the Mississippi Gulf Coast but as usual it was a beautiful setting for a gathering, despite the heat wave. Davis and I flew solo and met Andrew in Whitefish. It was the longest flight by myself. It began with my waking at 3:30 and whisking Davis out of his crib at 4AM. Luckily I lots of strangers helping me along the way. Davis did great on the 3 hours flight to Seattle. An elderly man impressed with this two years olds tech skills asked to snap a picture of him playing the ipad with headphones on. We then had a short flight from Seattle to Kalispel with this view.
Andrew arrived 5 days before we did and was busy doing this...
Thank you to Kate and Gran and Granmother who arranged for us to stay in a neat old home in downtown. It was a quick walk to all the quaint downtown. Each day and night was organized and scheduled with a large family dinner and family educational activity. More evidence, that I married into a big, loving, and very fun family with the Medleys. Hosts Doug (Tim's brother) and Marilyn have owned a second home here for years and have always had a open door policy. They scheduled a great week for all. Marilyn provided a crib for Davis and a basket full of toys, including a gold set. He played so much with it in the front yard he blistered on his hand. Like father, like son?
