This week on Don't Be Tardy, the Biermanns head to Montana for a peaceful vacation in the two where Kroy grew up. Plus, Kim and Kroy are faced with a serious decision about the future of their family when they have to choose an executor for their wills. Read on for a full recap of all the hijinks and good times in Montana...
The Biermanns are ready for another family vacation - this time to visit Kroy Biermann's hometown of Hardin, Montana. But before they head west, Kim Zolciak-Biermann and her hubby decide to sit down and go over their wills. The documents haven't been updated (or combined) since before the four youngest kids were born, and it's got Kim thinking about the big what ifs in life. Who would step up and take care of the kids if something happened to her and Kroy? Who would manage their estate? These kinds of responsibilities usually fall to family members, but since neither Kim nor Kroy has any contact with their parents, they need another option. After some discussion, the couple concludes that Bruce, the dad of Kroy's best friend and a surrogate grandpa to the young kids, seems like the most logical choice. And since he lives in Montana, the trip is the perfect time to ask him.
Needless to say, the older two girls are less than enthused about taking a trip to Montana. The younger kids may love the outdoors, but roughing it in the wilderness doesn't exactly sound like a fun getaway for the pampered teens. Plus, Brielle Biermann is quick to point out that Kim doesn't really know what she's getting herself into. After all, the town Kroy grew up in is tinier than tiny and the news that the nearest Starbucks will be 45 minutes away in Billings jolts Kim back to reality. Just like Ariana Biermann states in her confessional, no Starbucks equals no happy Kim, which is bad news for the entire family. This should be interesting...
With six kids, a crazy chef, two dogs and tow nannies in tow, the Biermann bunch arrives in Montana and the trip promptly turns into a three-ring circus. Kim is amazed at the beauty of the state's wide open spaces, but Kroy's the one having to educate his sheltered family on the difference between an antelope and a cantaloupe. (For the record, one is a wild animal roaming the Montana prairies and the other is a melon.) First up is dinner at the Montana Club in Missoula, which is the same restaurant Kroy used to eat at when he was in school at the University of Montana. Before they can even order, Brielle announces that she's going to use the trip to "find [herself] a nice Montana boy," but rethinks her decision seconds later when the waiter tries to flirt with her. While little KJ FaceTimes Bruce to show off the crab legs he's eating, Kim's just grateful to have alcohol and mozzarella sticks after such a long day.
The next morning, Bruce and his family are ready to take the Biermanns snowmobiling to show them something Kroy did all the time growing up. Having only seen snow a total of two times in their lives, the younger kids are positively over the moon about this activity, while Kim's just praying no one hits a tree and screaming "mucho frio" to poor Berta the nanny. Before she knows it, though, Ariana is out of sight on the back of chef Tracey Bloom's snowmobile and four-year-old Kash takes off down the hill all by himself on a (thankfully non-motorized) sled. Luckily, Bruce sprints to the rescue and snatches Kash before he can get too far, but Kim's nerves are completely shot. By the end of the day, however, everyone's had a good time and Kim admits that she sees the appeal of a quieter, more peaceful life in Montana. But no, that does not mean "call the realtor," Kroy.
Back at the lodge where they're staying, Kim and Kroy finally sit down with Bruce for a serious chat. After seeing him chase after Kash on the sled, the couple is more certain than ever that they can trust him to take care of their kids if something were to ever happen to them. Recognizing how much this responsibility means, Bruce graciously agrees to be the executor of their will and the Biermanns finally have some peace of mind about the situation. However, the fun in Montana is just beginning...Next week is part two of the trip!
