A Seven-Year-Old’s Love Letter to the Resort at Paws Up

Dear everybody at The Resort at Paws Up,

I love you. I miss you so much. When Mommy told me we were going glamping in Montana, I knew my vacation was going to be good, but I never guessed how special this Montana Ranch would be! I wish I was back at The Resort at Paws Up right now! I cried when it was time to leave, and cried a little bit more the whole time we were driving away because I didn’t want to leave all my new friends.

School is starting soon, and I’m so excited to tell my school friends about all of the fun I had at Paws Up on our Montana ranch vacation! With Mommy’s help, I put together a photo album of all my favorite Montana adventures! I’m planning to take these photos to school with me on the first week but thought I’d share them with you first.

I hope you like my Montana Memories!

Even when it rained, The Resort at Paws Up was so pretty! I will always remember the big rainbow I saw when I was playing in the fields after dinner at Pomp.

I got to be a real cowboy. I saddled up on a HORSE not a pony, just like a real cowboy.

I brought my harmonica and played it for the cows and the buffalo one night. They loved it and came right up to the fence to listen!

A nice man named Shaun taught me throw an axe and I even got three bullseyes in a row!

I stayed in a fancy cabin in the woods. Our house came with a car, a hot tub and a cozy fireplace.

And then we went glamping, in a tent with more rooms than Harry Potter’s. Glamping in Montana is the coolest!

The best part of life at camp was making new friends with my camping butlers. They taught me how to build a fire, and how to make the best S’mores.

I had fun playing with kids at the Kid’s Camp, and I made friends with all the animals. My favorites were Lewis, Sugar, Cinnamon, Flopsie, S’mores and Marshmallow.

I made s’mores every day and I also tried all different kinds of yummy Montana foods I hadn’t tried before, like bison and huckleberries.

Every night, we made new friends around the campfire roasting hot dogs and s’mores. I played with them while Mommy and Daddy drank wine with their new friends.
