Before Karl arrived we sent the girls out to pick wildflower on his property and put together a bouquet for him.
When Karl finally arrived we greeted him with flowers, food and drink. Then we flopped ourselves in his outdoor living room enjoying the evening sun. The girls threw an endlessly repeating stick for Raven, much to her delight, and wandered the fields under the setting sun of Montana’s Big Sky. As night fell we lit a fire in the belly of an old washing machine’s inner tub, roasting mashmellows, making s’mores, and trading stories into the night.
