We had a great time this weekend working at the river. We loaded up the pickup and left home about 10 a.m. on Saturday, to go to Helena to pick up the trees to plant on our Missouri River property. Due to all the driving, we didn't get to the river until 5:00 pm.
After setting up camp and planting the big tree, we had a snacky supper of chips and salsa. Since I didn't bring a wine glass, I ended up drinking out of the bottle. Julie, my husband took this photo just for you!
We planted an eight foot pine tree, a four foot pine tree and four river birch trees. And because I was whining about all the water I had to carry, my husband volunteered to water all the trees. I did mow part of the the knee-high grass and weeds with a walk behind mower.
For dessert, I indulged in quite a few burned marshmallows.
Due to the wind I couldn't quite keep them in the coals, so they would catch on fire. Anyway, that brought back a lot of childhood memories. After it got dark the fire was beautiful and we sat there quite a while just watching it. We woke up in the middle of the night and the stars were AMAZING! It was like they were right there shining as brightly as I've ever seen them with the Milky Way cutting through the night sky. It was definitely worth waking up for!
