Vacationing in Montana

Hi all!

I'm away on vacation for a few days..relaxing in Montana with my family. A nice train road overnight on the Amtrak was fabulous! I couldn't get any decent flights out of Oregon without only spending a day and a half with my family. Taking the train gave me a day and a half longer. Go figure! Getting your own sleeper cabin is the only way to go.

Champagne was promptly brought to me when I settled in my cabin. Complimentary when you get a cabin...and it's STILL cheaper than the airlines!

And little touches like chocolate just make my day!

This is our cabin! Waiting for my sis, brother-in-law and niece to arrive from California.

For less money you can get this tee pee to stay in. Kidding.

And seven dogs to greet us. These are a few. I've been slobbered! :)

Be back soon all!
P.S. I have not forgotten about my award!! :) I will be posting soon with all my answers!


  1. Ooooh, what a wonderful get-away! And what a way to get there! Soooo nice!!

    I hope you brought warm clothing. I was just looking on the Weather Bug, and it was showing snow showers in parts of Montana, and into the Dakotas. You may get snow bound and have to spend days doing nothing but resting up! lol

    I hope that you have a super wonderful visit with your family!

  2. Enjoy your family time. The pictures are great!

  3. Ooh, I <3 Montana!! Must take Amtrack somewhere sometime, looks like loads of grooviness!! Enjoy your vaca!!

  4. I've never taken a train before, but I bet it's fun.

    Have a wonderful vacation!!!


  5. The train looks like a great way to travel!

    Have a super time with your family!

  6. Hope you have a wonderful time!! I like the idea of train travel. Makes me think of the Orient Express!

  7. My OH and I have been contemplating taking the little ones on a train ride back to Indiana to visit his family. The horrors of flying with toddlers are too numerous to mention. Glad it's as awesome as I was envisioning. Hope you have a great visit!

  8. I just surfed in and wanted to let you know, i ADORE your blog...Your doggie pics are fabulous as well!
