Island Park, Idaho...I think we'll be back!
As we drove there on Thursday, "I hope there's snow..." was mentioned more than a few times. Aaron was anticipating going snowmobiling with BIL, Blair, in the mountains, and I was hoping to get some outdoor sister time in with Kristin and the boys.
There was definitely snow!
I just had to snap a picture of my sister on our walk, depicting just how high the snow was. The second picture was after my foot and leg went through the snow bank while walking up to our cabin. My foot still didn't touch the ground! So yes, there was definitely still snow. No need for us to worry! Ha!
There is just something about being in the mountains that gets me. When I was growing up, my dream was to live in the mountains. Dreams change, of course, and I wouldn't change where I'm at for anything. I love the little ND town we live in. That being said, the mountains are sure a wonderful place to visit, though! :)
Kristin brought the snowshoes, and so we enjoyed 'shoeing along the fence line in back of our cabin rental. The temperature was in the mid 40's - wonderful!
On the first evening there, I was able to get my first taste of what snowmobiling was like as I watched Blair go UP and over the huge snowbank in front of the cabin. I was sure the snowmobile was going to go over backwards. Ugh! The pictures below are Aaron and Zane, atop the snowbank. I just love that little boy!! "Of course!" seemed to be his phrase of the weekend.
Inside in the evenings, we enjoyed spending time with the boys and their parents. The last evening there, Zane put on a show for us (a very high energy show I might add!!), and Cullen toddled around, generously giving us smiles.
Until next time, Idaho!
