SO MANY THINGS TO BE THANKFUL FOR
We are learning over time that Flamingo’s and RV’s just seem to ‘go together’. So imagine our elation and surprise when we opened the most thoughtful gift from mom….a string of Flamingo lights – just what we’ve always wanted. Understanding that space is very limited, we are so thankful for the forethought and consideration that mom put into our gift. We can neatly pack our string of lights away safe and sound instead of strapping a big pink Flamingo to the back of our rig.
BIKING AROUND BEAUTIFUL LAKE COEUR D’ ALENE
We are always up for an adventure so when our beautiful cousin McKenzie asked us if we wanted to go for a bike ride around Lake Coeur d’ Alene we promptly responded – YES! We loaded the bikes on the car and headed to meet her at the trail head at Heyburn State Park. With the exception of smoke hanging in the air from the surrounding wildfires, it was a beautiful morning and the paved trail next to the lake made the 10 mile ride to Harrison a great experience. Lunch was spent on the deck at One Shot Charlie’s overlooking the lake and people watching. By the end of our leisurely ride back to the cars our legs were feeling every bit of the 20 mile round trip ride. Maybe next year our ride will include the next section of the trail.
SPENDING TIME WITH FAMILY AND FRIENDS
Other than the ridiculous beauty of the Pacific Northwest in the summer months our family and friends will forever keep us coming back to the area! We spent our time this summer visiting friends in Colville, catching up with life long friends from ‘younger years’, enjoying family dinners together, watching the pig races, petting the animals too big for the petting zoo, hunting dinosaurs, and nurturing the artist within. The time went by all too fast and soon October 1st rolled around and it was time to pack up and start our journey south for the winter months.
