Happy Birthday Mr. Awesome

Billings, MT  High 73  Low 53

Today is Jim’s birthday and I want to tell him how much I love him and how proud I am to be his wife.

We started the day by having breakfast at his favorite breakfast restaurant – Cracker Barrel. He loves their country ham and grits. Can you tell he’s from Virginia?

The rest of the day was pretty mundane. We did laundry and ran errands because we are heading out tomorrow.

Our big celebration was last night when Todd and Michaela joined us for dinner at the Montana Club. Jim and I split a rib eye and it was really good. However, the steak we had at Marysville still ranks at number one. It was fun to spend time with the kids and we said our see yas til next year.

The Moose Lodge camping area is empty except for our rig and one other. Too bad the trains and traffic are still running. I am looking forward to a much quieter night tomorrow night.

We are slowly going to be making our way towards Kalispell. First stop will be James Kipp BLM area about 40 miles north of Grass Range. That’s north of Billings on the way to Havre.

  5. Happy Birthday Jim! Hope you had a good one.

    We stayed at the James Kipp Recreation Area on our way back up to Canada this spring. Very nice area there.

  16. Happy birthday, Jim! Great he could celebrate with the kids. ( They'll always be kids no matter how old they are. ) So you'll be going across on 2. Don't think we've done much of that. And never been to Upper Missouri River Breaks. Should be interesting.

  18. Happy birthday, Jim! Good to see you celebrating with the kids.

    You're ging north on your way south? Be aware there's a BNSF mainline that runs parallel to US Hwy 2 so you'll still have trains if that's your chosen route.
