“Love is the most important thing in the world, but baseball is pretty good too.”
Ty and Kate take on season #2 in Great Falls, Montana! No matter where Tyler ends up each season, it is a goal of ours to make it an adventure.
Montana: (According to Wikipedia) “Montana has several nicknames, although none official, including “Big Sky Country” and “The Treasure State”, and slogans that include “Land of the Shining Mountains” and more recently “The Last Best Place”. Montana has a 545-mile (877 km) border with three Canadian provinces: British Columbia, Alberta, and Saskatchewan, the only state to do so. It also borders North Dakota and South Dakota to the east, Wyoming to the south, and Idaho to the west and southwest. Montana is ranked 4th in size, but 44th in population and 48th in population density of the 50 United States.”
When Tyler told me he was going to be with the Chicago White Sox this year but with one of their teams in Montana I had to google if there was anything interesting about that state. I certainly didn’t think their was, BUT it has been surprising to me. I actually really liked it. To most people I’m a big city Dallas girl, but I also love a slower paced life…at least for a few days at a time. One perk of being a flight attendant is I am on the go constantly for 4-6 days and then I get to do whatever I want the next 2-3 days. During baseball season this means I get to chase Tyler around the country. Last week I went to Montana for the first time and I fell in love. Great Falls is a cute little town with a slower paced life and full of friendly people. During the summer, it stays light until about 10:30 pm which for a now is great, but I’m not sure I could handle the opposite in the winter. The good news is, I won’t be there in winter!
Last time I visited we went to Giant Springs State Park. It was beautiful and the story behind it all is really interesting so google it. I already gave you your fun facts about Montana for the day. Of course I went to some of the Great Falls Voyagers baseball games as well! I am so lucky to have someone that loves adventure just as much as I do. I don’t think this lifestyle is possible without two people who will do anything to make it work but I am truly blessed. I love my life and wouldn’t trade it for anything!!
I had so much fun and I am on my way back right now so be sure to check in soon for another update. Tyler actually has a day off this time so stay tuned to find out how we made Montana an adventure again!
