Day Two started with another ride on the carousel for Anders, Finn and I. Then across the parking lot to check out the Children’s Museum.
I was so impressed with this museum and the kids loved it. If I hadn’t dragged them out (it was our first warm weather of the year, I couldn’t stay inside) we would have been there all day.
After a good long play, I wanted some Thai food. Our food choices are pretty limited over here in Livingston, so it was exciting to eat something different and yummy.
(Sidenote: A Thai place opened in Livingston last weekend!!)
To continue our eating tour of Missoula, we crossed the bridge to sample some of the best ice cream in Montana.
(Sidenote: We walked everywhere while we were there, so felt ok about indulging a bit.)
After the ice cream, we wandered along the river and then back to our hotel for
my nap quiet time.
That evening we got a babysitter-someone a friend of a friend recommended. We almost never have a babysitter, and certainly not someone we never met, but what the heck? The kids were sleeping soundly when we returned, so alls well that ends well.
Henry and I went to the IWFF award ceremony. We got a little lost on the UM campus (when someone tells you it’s in the brick building, it’s like being told to find the guy in the tie dye shirt at a Dead show), but eventually a very friendly gal walked us across campus to the theater. We ate, we drank, we applauded as folks got their awards. I was the obnoxious person using a flash on the camera. What can I say, I was excited for Henry.
The next morning, with our trip coming to a close, we snuck in one last activity– a short hike to the concrete “M” on the hill behind The University of Montana. It’s shorter than Bozeman’s “M” so it was a prefect morning shake down before a longish drive.
Then my camera broke. The end.
