Vacation, Day 8

We woke up and had a great breakfast at the Chewuch Inn & Suites in Winthrop.  It was such a great place to stay.  It was the feel of a bed & breakfast with the privacy of a hotel.  It was awesome.

We headed out on the 4 1/2 hour drive to Idaho.  Eastern Washington looks nothing like most of Washington.  There are no pine trees.

It looks almost like Arizona.  Seriously, this could be any road in Arizona.  Minus the cactus.

I have a new found respect for farmers.  There was miles and miles of wheat for as far as the eye could see.  It was crazy.

We finally made it to Idaho and the kids wasted no time getting in the water.  My Dad put in a slide off the end of the dock.

And they borrowed the neighbors giant raft to hang out on.

The got Noah this little battery powered jet ski.  He loved it!

We are all hanging out in the water.

It also shoots water out the front and he was sure to get us all!

Emily went for a kayak ride with Grandma Suzy.

Emily did about 100 flips.  She wonders why she has a headache now.  Hmmm....I wonder.

Noah and Emily playing some sort of game.

Suzy bought the boys some nerf guns.  FUN!

Suzy made a yummy bbq dinner and we all enjoyed that.  Then, I went out to sit on the swing for a long, long time tonight while the sun was setting.  

Then, the kids decided to do American Ninja Warrior on this long.

Then, my Dad put on the sprinklers and they jump on the trampoline and get soaked.

And my husband fell asleep.  I don't know what it is, but this is the ONLY place this man will ever take a nap.  He was out cold!
We are getting out the jet skis tomorrow and having more fun in the sun.

Wonderful! Everything looks like so much fun. Glad you arrived safely and still had lots of time for fun and frolics. Your dad and Suzy really do spoil you guys and are so considerate of things to make the kids happy. Enjoy yourselves for the next 4 days as all too soon it will end.(Boohoo!)

Interesting that Eastern Washington looks very much like what we drove through in Kansas and especially Eastern Colorado before the mountains. There is nothing but cattle farms through those regions, but for the most part, I thought it was beautiful because I long for a land like that with no people around. :)

I can't believe you are so good about writing your posts and uploading the photos - I have hundreds of photos to go through from our Colorado trip and I may get through them all in the next two days between laundry, and yard work - IF the rain ever stops here in very hot and humid Illinois.

Love, Linda
