playing in Island Park

Since we were going out to Idaho for Katie's wedding, we decided to go out a few days early and spend some time at Mark and Vicky's cabin in Island Park.

Even Katie came up for the afternoon on thursday. We had tons of fun playing in the water, and made smores later that night. Uncle Charlie roasted a little bat that had been terrifying Ben and Nancy in the cabin that morning.

We also went up to big springs, which was just a few miles away.
Kiersten really took a liking to uncle Charlie, and wanted to hold his hand, talk to him, and ask him questions all day.we were disappointed to find that instead of tons of really huge fish to feed, there are now one or two fish and tons of seagulls.

Vicky bought this blow up toy, but it had a few holes in it. So Ben made her crawl in there first to prove it was safe for the kids to use.

The kids all loved playing in the water. We had a couple of really nice days, and amazingly, no one got sunburned.

Kiersten's turn to ride.Evie had fun in the water too. She loved borrowing Tommy's little float toy.

I just downloaded 300 pictures off my camera from our trip, so I'll be posting again soon!
