Hiking in the wilderness

Yesterday we took a trip out to Couer d'Alene to enjoy this last weekend of Summer. We met my parents out at the park. The weather was nice, but a little breezy which made the freezing cold water even worse! The swimming part of the afternoon didn't last for long! Joe and the kids came back shivering and covered with goosebumps. We enjoyed burgers from Paul Bunyan's and a live band playing at the concert stage. After dinner, my parents had to leave, but we decided to take the kids to go on a "hike" at Tub's Hill. The kids LOVED it! The boys had fun following every trail and climbing on every rock. Sam was sure to warn us about poison ivy ("Don't worry, I learned about it in first grade" he told us very smuggly.) and Andrew thought that this must be like the wilderness in the Book of Mormon. They were amazed by the size of the lake.

 I told them to pretend like they saw a bear for this picture...

And of course the muscle shot...

After we got back to civilization (A.K.A. the parking lot) we decided to take them down to the dock to walk for a bit. We only made it down one side (everyone was getting pretty tired from all the walking) but they loved all of the boats. We finished off the fun evening with a stop at Cold Stone. Sam serenaded us by singing along with the radio that was playing there, he said they were playing all of his favorite songs! It was a very fun day. I love spending time with my family, especially when we get to go on new adventures!
