But I have lots of pictures that must be blogged, or they will disappear! Last week my brother and his kids came to visit. We had F-U-N! The kids play so well together, and we were all sad to see them go. But we managed to pack quite a bit of fun into the time they were here, and we have plans for an end-of-summer camping trip with them, so it's okay!
First off was a trip to downtown CDA for dinner and a little playtime at the new park!
That night, the kids and dads pitched tents outside for a backyard camp out. It started out fine, but by about 4:00 am 3 of the 5 kids were inside. And of course I woke up each time another kid came inside, while the other adults slept peacefully outside!
Next...Silverwood! It was supposed to be questionable weather, but it turned out to be warm enough for the water park PLUS it was completely uncrowded. Everyone got to go on all the rides they wanted to go on, plus water slides, wave pool, lazy river... We left totally exhausted!
Next up was Hayden Lake. We were totally worn out from our day at Silverwood the day before, but we were kinda afraid that the nice weather wasn't going to last!
And just a few random "in between" pictures...
Thank goodness for $1 movies when the weather was bad!

Another day was spent at Lake Coeur d'Alene/Tubbs Hill:
Definitely looking forward to our August camping trip!
