Home In Montana

Home In Montana

I've been spending the holidays with my family at home in Red Lodge, Montana. It's been a great visit and I really treasure the time here. My brother Brad, his wife Hui, and their 4-year-old son Ethan were also here for several days. Red Lodge is a small ski town and I love the community and pace here. There's lots of snow and we've been taking advantage of it with several trips sledding. My brother and I also did an interview session with my dad. Mark Edwards of Audiobiography has been recording my father's memoirs and the last session was with me and Brad. We told stories, asked questions of my dad, reflected on our lives together, laughed a lot, and cried a lot.

Breakfast at the Pollard Inn, where Brad and Hui stayed.

Three generations of Wilsons enjoying a good smoke with our gum cigarettes. The Texas sweatshirt ... yes, a little baffling, but it was a gift from my dad's stepson who lives there. Brad is a dead ringer for our late grandfather (my dad's father) -- it's a little hard to tell with all that hair, but check it out: http://www.meganwilson.com/scrapbook/scrapbook.php?Qwd=./family%20images&Qif=94_Image.jpg&Qiv=thumbs&Qis=M

My dad with Greta, his step granddaughter, and the puppies! There are 9 of them -- very cute!

Brad and Ethan sledding -- Ethan named himself "little mountain goat," which was appropriate as he was able to cruise right back up the hill faster than anyone.

My room at the Rock Creek Resort. The owl painting was a gift from my brother -- it was part of my mom's collection that he has part of -- was a very special gift! The resort has lived up to its name -- it has a full sized swimming pool, jacuzzi, and sauna, which I've been taking advantage of daily.
