How do I love thee, Idaho - let me count the ways...

I know...I sound like a broken record...a paid promoter for Idaho tourism...or someone who wakes up each morning and can't help but feel grateful for being able to spend the glorious summers here.

Roger got home from Guinea and immediately started work on getting the flotilla launched and the dock swung around to the stairs.  A flock of geese took advantage of weeds that formed an island when the weeds got hung up on the mooring buoy.
Cara Moe was visiting with her family and used her best MacGyver-ish skills to cut the weeds with a bread knife strapped to a pole.  Well done, Cara!

Cara and Jason's boys and their friends loved tubing and riding on the jet skis...and well, pretty well everything about being here.
Oscar is ready --- just has to wait around 12 more years before he can drive on his own!

 We spent a great evening with Dwayne and Annette Majcher on their boat on Lake Coeur d'Alene-- and had fun dancing to some tunes.
No -- I haven't grown.  I'm standing on the bench.

We were invited to our friend's house for dinner.  Gail has a beautiful house on the river and we realized it was near a favorite spot we like to anchor our boats.
We took the ski boat into Sandpoint for dinner at Spuds one night.  Perfect evening with friends and a beautiful evening to drive home in the dark.

Our ski boat docked on the boardwalk.  Going to restaurants by boat is my favourite mode of transportation.

We have a busy time ahead with 20 friends and family visiting.  While most have been here before, I know our first time guests will fall in love with the area and want to return again.
