Island Park

A couple weeks ago James an I took a trip up to Idaho to visit my little brother and his cute family. His wife Jen's family has a cabin in Island park so we headed up to spend the weekend with the bears. Let me say, I am NOT a camper. Never have been. BUT, this was a cabin with a toilet and running water so I fared pretty well. We had a great time. The weather was perfect. The night before we went up I was able to have dinner and spend some time with an old friend. Jaime and her husband Brandon. It was so nice to see them and their super cute kids.

James also had a chance to re-visit his adolescence...
I think my favorite part of the trip was riding the quads. No broken bones this time.
We visited the oldest cabin up in Island park. It was built by a man named Johnny Sack. He was only like 4 and a half feet tall. So everything in the cabin was little. Here John and James decided they would reenact what Johnny must have looked like next to a normal size man.
The cabin sits at the head of the river. The water is crystal clear and you can go and feed the fish there. James thought it would be funny to feed me to the fish.
James trying to find signal to call a prescription in for his patient. What did we ever do before cell phones? Oh wait, I know, we had nice, quiet, peaceful vacations.
James really loves kids. And they love him right back. Trynitee was his new best friend while we were there.
I went out with the boys to watch them shoot. I did give the handgun a try. Not a big fan of shotguns. I was quite content to run the skeet shooter.
Dad and John giving me a few pointers.
We decided to do a little fishing before heading home. Unfortunately all that was accomplished was the refining of our casting skills.

John with his little boy Johnny and a pink and purple fishing pole...hey I'm just pointing out details.
"Taste?"
On our way there and on our way home I got to meet my sweet little nephew Juno. He was such a cutie! Needless to say he looks just like his momma and big brother! I think he got Bud's hands and feet. ;-)

You guys take the most fun trips!! It feels like forever since I have seen you. I hope you are at the next bunco or else we will need to plan a girls night.

Also I have quite missed your conservitive soap box. It's been a while, and you really have a way with words and makeing the D's sound as stupid as they are.
I love to hear your opinion :)

You are a trooper. I've always wanted to go to Island Park, but I would have toilets and running water on my must-have list as well.

I'm late on this blog!
Oh how I envy you! I love Island Park. That's where we honeymooned, strange I know, but so great to be up there all alone after being bombarded on wedding plans. It's so pretty! I love the picture of you with the gun! Priceless! Glad you got away and all went great.
