There is much to post about!

Over Father's Day weekend we hopped in the car and drove to Northern Idaho. We had heard how beautiful Couer d'Alene was and had to check it out. My parents came along for the ride.

My Aunt (my Dad's sister) lives in Spokane, and I had asked if we could meet up for dinner. I told her I would be bringing two friends to dinner with me, she didn't know my parents were coming. She was surprised to see my parents, and thought it was funny I had referred to them as my friends. 
My parents are always fun to have around.

Lake Couer d'Alene is gorgeous!!! It is so beautiful up there!

We drove up to Sandpoint and saw Lake Pend Oreille, also amazing to see! Which is one of the deepest lakes in the United States at 1,158 feet, that is scary deep!

Every other year we try to stay home for the 4th of July. This year was the year to be home. My parents and my sister in-law and niece came up to spend the holiday with us. 
We went to the zoo, ate a lot of Reed's Dairy ice cream, did arts and crafts, napped, ate wonderful food, watched fireworks, played games and saw hot air balloons take off in Driggs. 
Sadly the only thing I got pictures of was the hot air balloons, I have gotten bad about pulling out the camera to document things.

Dad and I arose at 4 A.M. to get to Driggs by 6 A.M. 
We got there just in time to see the first one get blown up.

There were several of them!

I loved how this picure turned out. You can barely see the Tetons over one of the balloons on the right.

They are fasinating to watch in the sky.

Too bad I am afraid of heights, or I would like to ride in one of these.

This is how Cosmo has spent his summer days.
Lucky dog.

We have also made several trips down to Utah for family activites, family reunions, bridal showers, birthday celebrations. After the family reunion, we got to spend time at the Dude's family cabin with his parents and siblings. 
We have been keeping busy this summer!
