4th of July in "Stars Hollow"

First of all, if any of you can guess the "Stars Hollow" reference you will receive a gold star. It was such a fabulous weekend, the Steele's and Cannon's (Some of our closest friends who we don't get to see nearly enough) joined us in in the middle of nowhere to celebrate our countries independence. We attended:
: The horse parade (Almost as exciting as it sounds)

: The Ravalli County Rodeo pageant ( Oh my Nellie, I am going to try to send for the transcription. AWESOME! )

: A dutch oven cook-off (Very tasty! Seriously why don't we have a dutch oven restaurant here!)

: The Ravalli county Hoe-down (Think of the worst Stake Dance you've ever attended and times it by 100, and unlike the typical Stake Dance we couldn't even leave early to go get ice cream because nowhere is open after 9:00 p.m.)

: Andy my favorite- the Watermelon Eating contest ( This definitely deserves it's own blog. Stay tuned. )

We also went to Lake Como, and Blodgett canyon. ( We might not have a store opened past 8:00 p.m. but we have plenty of nature) It was a great weekend!


  1. Gilmore Girls!

    Glad to see pictures of such a handsome crew!

  2. Jill, we had SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO MUUUUCCCH FUUUUNN!!!!!! Thank you for everything!! Can't wait to do it again. :)

  3. The downside to having such a good time is that eventually one has to come home. You could make it all better though if you got those transcripts!!!
