We both enjoy our home and our quiet country spot–it’s unusual for us to go to town more than once or twice a week. This week we’ve been five times!!–and we are exhausted! Thursday was a Billings day–the Cowboy had a routine doctor’s appointment and I was getting a haircut plus we had a ton of errands to run–it was a very busy day!
Friday morning was spent at home but in the afternoon we drove to Livingston to renew the Cowboy’s driver’s license and have dinner at the Rib and Chop House with Sarge and Sarah. Our meals were delicious and the company great as usual!
Sarge, my Cowboy and Sarah.
Today was Sweet Grass Fest in Big Timber plus a high school class reunion for the Cowboy. Vendors, car show, climbing tower, dunking booth, parade–something for everyone. Our little town was crowded!! It’s always such a wonderful time seeing friends, meeting new ones and experiencing small town living at its finest. Friday and Saturday night there is a rodeo and usually live music.
The Cowboy’s class had a simple float in the parade and threw candy to the kids/adults–
How come I only got ONE chocolate???
After the parade the Cowboy’s classmates gathered at the local lumber yard owned by a classmate. Big building, out of the sun–perfect for a potluck. Classmate Royal grilled burgers and hot dogs with the rest of us providing sides–it was again a fun time visiting with old friends.
It was finally time to head home and we were all ready–we retrieved Emmi at Nat’s and headed up the Boulder–a great day!

Cool Mike’s class reunion! Did they have paper then or just chalk boards? Ya gotta love small hometown parades!
Mike said to tell you they used “rocks and charcoal.” It was such a special day!
We’re only 25 miles from Helena and I really don’t like having to make that drive very often. Sometime even Townsend is too far. But there is nothing like small town celebrations. Having a class reunion at the same time is a great idea.
Big Timber class reunions are always held on rodeo weekend–I think there were at least four different graduating years having reunions this year.
Love the small town activities:)
