We were lucky again to escape the heat and stay at Uncle Bubba (Doug) and Marilyn's Whitefish home. Andrew played in the Whitefish tournament again this year to defend his title. It was such an easy trip out and first class accommodations as always. We enjoyed the Farmer's Market, visiting the park, Big Mountain with chair lift ride and alpine slide, boating on Whitefish Lake, Glacier National Park and the infamous rafting trip. We had evenings watching the deer and Davis dancing on the deck. Fireworks started at 11PM in Montana when the sun finally set and were enjoyed in the backyard. The kids took amazing naps in that Montana air. Uncle Bubba joined us for the later pater of our trip, taking us on a tour of Glacier National Park. We were able to see Lake MacDonald and do a walk to see Anchorage Gorge. Uncle Bubba gets big points for his efforts to get Davis on a raft. It started with yellow jacket stings for both Doug and Andrew and finished with my picking them up off Hwy 2 while it was hailing. But it was an adventure for the little man that he won't forget. Next visit, we'll get that rafting trip checked off our list. Thank you Marilyn and Doug for sharing your home with us and allowing us to have such an enjoyable family vacation.
