They had a cookout in the mountains, enjoyed a ride through Bitterroot Mountain range on one side and the Sapphire Mountains on the other side. They saw the first home Bill and Laurie lived in in Hamilton, Mont. On their way back, they enjoyed eating at a local restaurant in Stevensville, which was the first settlement in Montana. They visited and enjoyed swimming at the Lolo Hot Springs one evening. On Friday, they visited the Bison Museum on the Flat Head Indian Reservation. They stopped in Polson, Mont., so they could have a picnic along the shore of the Flat Head Lake, which was beautiful. Then everyone, except Bill and Laurie, were surprised when they looked up and Saw Scott Center walking toward them. He planned to come out and surprise them, but truly was more of a shock for them. They left there and traveled on to Kalispell, where they spent the night. Early the next morning they traveled to Glacier National Park where they spent the day. It is indescribable in it's beauty. They attended church Sunday, at Living Hope Fellowship, where Bill is the pastor. They were supposed to have a cookout at Chief Looking Glass Campground after church, but the rain kept them at the church, but the food and fellowship were just as good. Scott flew back to Kansas City early Monday morning, and planned to wait at the airport for the rest of the family who were flying out Monday afternoon. The plane they were to fly out on was struck by lightening as it was landing, so they extended their stay one more day. Ronette Center met them at the airport on Tuesday. After lunch, they returned home.
