Missoula, Montana

We left the Miracle of America Museum in great haste as we were concerned about securing a place to stay in Missoula on a Friday & Saturday night.  We had good reason; we secured the last spot for both nights with a bummed someone in line just behind us.  The kids enjoyed our stay here at Camp Jellystone.  The playground & the pool were big hits, and we had full hookups.  It was a little pricier than our first choice, but it turned out to be  a good stop anyway.

Our whole stay here in Missoula turned out to be all about the kids.  We spent the day at the Dragon Hollow playground, the Carousel, and the Families First Children's Museum.  All four kids had an absolute blast!  The children's museum was great.  The staff was super nice, they accepted our reciprocal museum membership with no hassle whatsoever, and the atmosphere was relaxed & low-key enough that Steve managed to find a quiet spot to take a nap!  Even though before leaving Texas, we'd been to the super nice Fort Worth Museum of Science & History  which has waaay more stuff for the kids to see & do, our kids all said they had a better time here.  It was just the right amount of stimulation without big crowds.  And now that we live in an RV without all the toys of home, this was just what the doctor ordered!
