Beautiful Miss Kayci Lulu Madman & her trusty goats
These photos were taken on my first day back in Montana. I got to Charlo at midnight the night before and woke up to help my cousin and her family pack up their house and move ... down the road! They rent their house out every summer to the fire service (two pilots are staying there now) and my cousin is conveniently house sitting for a couple that lives on the closest property while they bike through Europe for two months. Luckily we traded one cute house with an awesome location for another! This was a nice pause in the day where I took the kids outside for a break from packing and cleaning to run around in the sunshine with a brand new parrot kite.
Summer is magical and I am gulping it down.
I feel really lucky to be in Chico, my hometown #2, at this pivotal moment when the creeks are warming and the college students have left. Us locals get to take over what is rightfully ours ;). The sun is warm on some days, perfect for walks in the park under the epic oaks. And other days it's hot, perfect for whole afternoons spent at swimming holes.
Summer is medicine and I am gulping it down.
