And so ends our tour of Helena (at least for this visit). I hope you have enjoyed it half as much as I have.


  1. Thanks for the extra tidbits of Helena. Yes, I enjoyed my visit to Helena with you.

  2. I'm still surprised every time I pull up your blog and see those two adorable faces staring up at me. They are so cute and that is a great picture.

  3. I was looking for the "like" button- I guess I use Facebook too much...feels good to have internet access again and to check and see what everyone is up to! I am HOPING we make it to Montana this fall...I'll let you know if we do!


Thanks for visiting today. I look forward to reading your comments. Have a beautiful day.
