Next Project Need

Lots of teenagers means lots of cars!  We have three girls in college now, all driving, so there is a need for many more parking spaces.  Between visitors, the girls, their friends and boyfriends, the front yard can be a muddy mess from people parking on the grass.  Our next project is to stabilize the grass with a special material used for parking spaces in which grass is planted on top of heavy duty material which allows cars to park on the grass but prevents erosion and a muddy mess. We are soliciting various companies with a similar product that allows this.  We need to raise the money to afford the product and  help with installation.  I will update when we know more.  One company is looking into the cost for us right now. There is often five cars parked, with visitors coming and going.

Yellowstone National Park vacation

The family went to Yellowstone National Park in July, 2013.  Thank you to everyone who made this trip a possibility, we are very grateful!  Everyone but Amanda was able to make it.  We flew into Billings, Montanna and drove to Gardiner, Montanna which was our home base.  We rented a house for a week.  It was the best time! Montanna is so beautiful.  We went horseback riding and rafting and lots of hikes and swimming in thermal rivers, etc.
