We were very blessed by a weekend spent with Christian & Kate.  It was an honor that they would take the time & trouble to come so far to visit us.  We had some really nice times together.  Thanks to Kate for all of the best pictures on this page. 
We went straight from the airport to Glacier National Park, my happy place. We enjoyed the wait for the opening time for the dining room at Lake McDonald Lodge 
Kate's photo  

Rock skipping contest.  Everything is a contest with these two!

Rose had a beautiful dinner on Friday night.  Here you see how she can set a beautiful table.
