A Very Special Weekend

Canyon Ferry, MT    High 85  Low 56

Last weekend was my birthday and our son Todd joined us to help celebrate. (I keep trying to tell everybody I am not having any more of these birthday things but nobody seems to listen to me.) This KOA has cabins for rent and we were able to get one for Todd. Our little trailer definitely doesn't sleep three adults. Todd also wanted to do some fishing with his Dad.

Todd caught a couple of really nice walleye.

The weather was perfect for being out on the water.

We also put Todd to work. The hot desert sun destroys a lot of things and one of those was one of our vent covers.  So Todd climbed up on the roof and went to work. As with almost everything that needs to be done, the process doesn't always go smoothly. But Todd is definitely his father's son. Both he and Jim have the ability to analyze the situation and then determine a way to make it work.

Todd had to head back to Billings on Sunday and it was hard to say goodbye. But we will see him again in August.

My sister and her hubby drove out from Helena and bought us dinner at the Flamingo Grill. I forgot to get a picture but we had a great time visiting.

A truly wonderful weekend.


  1. Don't say you don't want any more birthdays! You know what that means, don't you?? Glad you're having a great time.

  2. Birthdays are a celebration of Life so please keep having them.
    Nice to have those family visits.
    Be Safe and Enjoy!

    It's about time.

  3. It's good to get to see our kids every now and then. Glad you got to visit with Todd and with your sister.

    Birthdays are good. It's the acknowledging of them that hurts. We did a pretty good job of ignoring mine yesterday. :)

  4. Happy Belated Birthday Wishes. Your son's visit was very special and created new memory for you all.

  5. Happy Belated Birthday Sandie! How wonderful to get to spend it with special people.

  6. Happy BD and good your son could be with you.

  7. Great photos and it's always good to have a helpful son! I love birthdays--just celebrate the day and forget about the number!

  8. How cool was that, another visit. Also cool was getting help with the vent cover. Those things can be a major pain.

  9. Can I borrow Todd? I've got a few things that need attention on my RV roof. Sadly, I have no place for him to fish. ;c)

  10. Looks like such a good time. Happy, Happy Birthday to YOU!!!!

  11. Lucky you to celebrate your birthday with family. Good times again.

  12. the ability to analyze the situation...... the best way to solve any problem.


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