Back from Vacation…

We had a fantastic trip to Idaho visiting our family and friends. We started in Boise and had a wonderful time relaxing, checking out the farmer’s market, going on bike rides, dining at our favorite restaurants, celebrating some birthdays, making s’mores, and spending time with our family and friends. Here are a few photos from our trip.

I’ll be back to posting recipes tomorrow…

 

Spicy margarita – cheers!

Next we headed to McCall where we visited my husband’s mom and step dad. We had a great time playing in the lake, watching a small town 4th of July parade, lighting fireworks, going on a horseback ride, riding four wheelers, and hanging out with friends and family.

What a view

Next we headed up to the mountains to stay at my husband’s father’s cabin in Riggins. We had a fantastic time riding four wheelers up the mountain, playing at the river, driving over White Bird Hill to visit a cool museum, watching movies, taking a nice hike, and spending time together.

    That funky sculpture is someone's interpretation of Medusa of Greek mythology.
    A very good one so befitting a restaurant.
    Original of course.
    Love seeing it, thanks.

    The shot of Chad and your daughter reminds me of teaching Trevor just 3 years ago.
