Postponed Mother's Day

This year, Sunday, May 8th, 2016, 
was a busy time of the year for 
our family.
It was in between two birthdays and
 a mother that was 
9 months pregnant.

Best thing to do was, push it out so everyone 
could enjoy spending time together.
So we postponed it until
Last weekend, it was the time!
We all piled into the 14 seater van and headed to
the town of Horseshoe Bend.
There, along the side of the road,
 was a perfect spot for a picnic.

It was a short hike to a sandy beach, 
right on the Payette River.
There were hundreds of rafters
that floated down the river.
We had plenty of time to sit, relax, talk, eat, and 
enjoy each other.
Happy Mother's Day Kimmy!

We even had homemade cards,
 special crowns and presents.

Lots of photo opportunities!
And plenty of time to watch
the boaters.
It was so exciting.
Some boats would stop right in front of us to
use the rope swing!

Happy Mother's Day


  1. Oh Christine, what a delightful and blessed time! I can tell by your faces that everyone enjoyed themselves :)

  5. What a beautiful family you have!! The day spent together looks perfect.

    We love driving up Highway 55 along the Payette. It is so picturesque and really quite soothing to the soul.

    And congratulations son the new grandchild.


  6. I love seeing how much fun you had on this day. I was well worth postponing. Happy belated Mother's Day! Maybe you should make this an annual thing.

  7. You have the best adventures. I am thrilled for you {and a bit jealous} that you live close to your grandkids.

  8. What a beautiful place to have a celebration. Those kids are getting so big! Sweet baby. My kids love those little carriers. No one to go into one right now, but...wait for it....we're expecting another in 2017! I'm catching up with you! :D
