Our family history is bold and exciting and this is how we live our lives. We too love adventure and travel is our favorite past time. Jennelle own's a specialty bakery for Gluten Free and Vegan needs and Scott is in the iron business. Our oldest is in college and two in high school. We travel back and forth from MT to TX but we will forever have our hearts where our home is, The Big Sky~

The location is ideal for easy access to Glacier National Park as well as many of the areas amenities.
