|Amy's Birthday Float
July 21 - 23, 2016
|My good friend and sister-in-law Amy had a
landmark birthday this summer. Her ever-thoughtful husband Jeb
decided to plan a surprise camping/float trip for her to celebrate.
They were kind enough to include me on this trip and I had a great time
with them and their friends.
|Looking out at the Flathead river from near the camp site||This is for my Okie friends, we aren't used to water this clear!|
|Our home for the weekend||Madison, Storm, Aubrey, Amy, Jeb in the foreground. I had already
trekked the steep
slope down to the water, and once was enough for me!
|Friday morning moonset||Jeb knows how to cook up a beautiful camp breakfast!|
|Jeb, always willing to be Amy's gift||Now we are on our float. My waterproof camera was not the greatest, but at least it worked.|
| We came around a bend to find everyone else calmly fishing all while
hats. Then they gave the birthday girl a hat of her own. Madison was grabbing a nap.

|Storm & Madison||Osprey nest and a pretty rock bluff. It was really neat in person.|
|Stopping for some fishing, snacks, and bluff jumping. The water was COLD!||Jeb doing a little fishing|
|Showing off a huge fish, so big it broke the pole||These two dogs were so cute. That little white one ruled that ice chest.|
|Storm making the first bluff jump||Colter giving us a dance before he made his jump|
|Friday night Jeb treated everyone to steaks and we had a huge birthday dinner||It included Morel mushrooms, corn, salads, and the works|
