vacation – day 1

24 Aug

I love a great vacation.

We’re just back from a wonderful vacation in Idaho with three other families. Together, we rented a house right on the Spokane river. The house was fantastic, the company was wonderful and we made some great memories. Here are a few shots from the first day…

Here is our house. The first picture is the back, the second is the river side. It was just beautiful with plenty of room for 17!

This creek ran through the back of the property. We also had a sandy beach, jet ski lifts and a really nice dock.

Some of the kids (here: Cassidy & Sarah) hit the lake. Some of us took an evening cruise up the river.

The Gillis family on their way out and Kendall on the boat… isn’t she precious?

Day one also included a six hour drive, so it was pretty low key. We were all pretty happy to get there, get some groceries bought, have a simple dinner and relax. The perfect start to a vacation.
