Last week we went to Idaho and spent time at Silverwood theme park. They are well known for their roller coasters. Lilyann even rode a child size coaster! She would say "more", "more!" everytime we got off of a ride with her. I think she may be thrill seeker. We then spent time at my dad' s cabin, where Miranda got to go fishing for the first time. She caught the biggest fish, and she was hooked! We enjoyed some relaxing days just hanging out on the cabin porch, or swimming at the nearby lake. Jeff has also been taking the girls to his moms house on Lake Chelan on the days I am at work. Here are some pictures from some of our summer outings:
The Space needle at the Seattle center. This is the location of the science center we took the girls to as well. It was a great day to be in Seattle with the clear blue skies and mild tempts!
Cousin Olivia, Lilyann, and Miranda, hanging out at Boulder Beach, the big waterpark at Silverwood. This is where we spent most of our time there, we all love water, including Lilyann!
The lakes up by my dad's cabin are so quiet and calm. This lake had a campground, and a perfect little swimming beach. Lilyann liked to sit on the beach and play in the sand by the water.
My happy little fishergirl. I mean this girl LOVES to fish. She caught her limit each night, and begged to stay out on the lake even when it was starting to get dark.
Hangin out on the log cabin porch. Lilyann saw Miranda posing for pictures here, and wanted to do the same thing. This was the first time she has done this as she is usually oblivious to my camera and won't sit still for me. The cabin is very rustic. We roasted marshmallows outside at night. We would watch ground squirrels, hummingbirds, and a mama deer and her fawn from the window every morning and evening. On the last day we hiked into the woods to pick huckleberries. We were always on the lookout for bears, moose and cougars, and I made sure dad had his gun with him!
It was a fun time, and we hope to return to the cabin next year. We have a few more short trips planned this summer, then things will start to settle down as my favorite season of the year rolls in...fall!!!
