|"life is just a tire swing" - Jimmy Buffett|
It was so peaceful and enjoyable out here by the river that we all decided to hang out and do it again on our last night. Out in Montana, unbeknownst to me, the summer days are much longer than ours in south Louisiana. So, even though it seems the middle of the afternoon it was much later. This gave me more time to do everything I wanted during the day and then come back and still have a couple of hours to paint. While they played on the rope in the river, I painted. You have to imagine me standing all the way to the right of the tree and bushes on the right of this photo looking back out to the river. I couldn't see the kids or my husband going out over the river until they were at the furthest point they could swing out and then drop in. So, it was quite entertaining as they yelled at me to watch (while I was painting of course) when they each went out. Of course there were lots of "I'm awesome" and "Cowabunga" being yelled. They did this for about an hour. When they finished, I was too.
