Idaho Vacation

A few things I learned on our summer vacation this year:
{a} An evening at the golf course with Whitney really means that I get to play caddy and drive the cart. Golf just isn't my sport.
{b} Overlooking the valley of Derek's picturesque hometown was eye opening. I have had a soft spot for Idaho since college, but this blew me away.
{c} Lots of laughs and smiles during a family photo shoot. I don't even want to tell you how many fish heads were in that water right there. Nasty.
{d} Check out that golf swing. Better yet, that bum. All mine. :)
{e} This is on a street in Oakley. Seriously? Look at that green. It was gorgeous. Besides that, don't slide you hand on a wood bridge. You'll get a nasty splinter.
{f} A dirty, thumb aching, 3 hour exploring adventure with only 3 freak out moments was good for me. My panicking days are over! (until chillen's come)
{g} A cute couple photo. Minus the fact that I have a pigment change above my left eye causing light to catch and giving me a permanent bug bite in photos. Oh, and don't wear super textured sweaters in family pictures- adds major poundage.


  1. Okay, I know that it's not, but photo 'c' looks TOTALLY photo-shopped. I'm fairly certain y'all were in a studio and they cropped you into that gorgeous background.

    Who knew Idaho was so beautiful? Thanks for sharing your trip with us! ;)

  2. Ha ha ha! You crack me up MJ! It's totally real! It was insane when we saw the prints!

  3. Glad you had a great trip! I agree that Idaho is beautiful in the summer time. I don't know how much I appreciate the beauty of the endless winters though.
    Your family pictures turned out great and you look BEAUTIFUL as always!
    Hopefully school isn't too crazy for Derek and you can get plenty more weekends like this one. If not, I am sure we can find plenty of chick flicks we could go to without having to make our hubbies suffer!

  4. cute family! and oh so jealous you got to escape the heat, and to a beautiful place too. i can't golf either- i think it's hard, and boring!

  5. Haha mostly I just drive the golf carts too! I think it is sometimes funner than playing and sucking! Ha and were you on a four wheeler? I went on some intense four wheeling rides (I drove)in Idaho and I was SO stressed as they were so scary and really unsafe! What a fun trip! Idaho is a fun place!


  6. looks like you had so much fun!!!!
