Life has been busy at the McDougalls Home and I am a bit behind on my posts.

We did not go camping over the Memorial Day weekend.  Rather, we went on a nice picnic on Saturday at a campground about 15 minutes away from our house.  We had a real fun time.  Click the picture on the left to see more of our fun picnic.

On Memorial Day (Monday), we had to stick around to receive a load of about 33,000 pounds of blocks for our retaining wall.  We have a retaining wall in our back yard that was quite delapidated, and in dire need of replacement.  With our wonderful children’s help, we tore the old one out and we are in the initial stages of building a new one.  It will be very nice when we place the last of the 33,000 pounds in place. Whew!  Click the picture on the left to see it so far.

We had our church picnic yesterday evening. What a great time we had.  The picnic was at the Kleffner Ranch betweeen East Helena and Montana City.  It was well attended with probably 200 or so people.  Denis Young and his wife Stacy own the ranch, and host many events there all year around.  Denis gave us a grand tour of the barn and of all the work they have done renovating it.  The barn was build in the late 1800’s and is in great shape.  Click the picture to see a slide show of our fun picnic and the tour of the barn.  John

We went to the Boulder River at the Galena Gulch Campground near Boulder, on Thursday evening for a simple picnic and to wade in the river.  We had a great time, playing around, finding pretty rocks, skipping rocks, playing tag, reading, and eating.  It was fun and refreshing.  John
