Collecting Memories in Helena
You probably heard that Emily recently spoke at the annual meeting of the Northwest Archivists, which was in Helena, of all places.
Fortunately, I was able to join her for part of it. Her session on artifacts in archives was a smash, and we had fun visiting friends and family.
My first meal in town reassured me I was in my hometown, where they almost always put ranch on the table next to the ketchup:
Speaking of ranches (sorry), Emily's conference reception was at the charming Kleffner Ranch:
That's also where she got that great sunset photo that's up top...
Had a nice drive up to York for dinner with Marisa and Dave:
And we saw Mike and his family. Unfortunately they're all too fast for my camera, but here's an action shot of the Easter egg hunt:
That's Mike, and his kids—Gavin, Skylar, and Tatum.
Is it the second biggest Easter egg hunt in the country? That claim sounds suspicious to me, but it was in the paper, so who knows?
Spent our last evening in town with Maraya and the rest of the family.
I got a couple of photos of Ryan, but I guess we'll have to go back for pictures of Tryna, Connor (well, he's in the background above), and Devin.
Cheers, reader. Hope you're having a great week!
