Vacation Time

Time away is always fun.
This time it was, the BEST!

Tom and I planned our visit to Idaho,
  (where the grand kids live) 
for the annual Chick Fil-A,
Cow Day.
I don't know who was more excited,
Tom or the kids!
We all wore our homemade outfits 
and received a free breakfast!

Next day we went for a boat ride on
Lucky Peak Lake

It was really hot out!
We all got in and swam around.
The water was so refreshing.

Tom had fun teaching 
Lulu and Levi how to float.
What a fun time!

But the best part of the vacation
was Silas.
Look at him!
Silas is strong, active, healthy, and HAPPY!
Can you tell he had open heart surgery
just three months ago?

Time with our grandchildren also goes too fast.
It's always so hard to leave.

My girlfriend, since I was 3 years old, now lives in Idaho!
Can you guess who we visited on the way home?
They built a beautiful home on a lake
and we had a great time,
talking, laughing, talking, eating, talking, swimming, talking, boating, and TALKING!

Didi's dog entertained us non-stop with 
water tricks.
Lucy got brave enough to go out on the dock 
all by herself, one morning.
It was before anyone else was up, except me!

On our way home we ran into a wild fire, out break.
We got stuck on a bridge, with backups for miles.
The temperature was hot!
Praise God, we didn't have to wait very long.

Then the next night,
 Tom and I went to the
Ringo Star Concert.

It has been a wonderful and happy week for me!

                   Now, it's back to laundry,
                                                                    and cleaning.

I'm content!


  1. Such a great vacation. It's so good to see Silas looking so healthy. Praise God!

  2. What a wonderful week friend!!!
    Silas looks so happy & good to see

  3. So fun! Family, friends, and a concert with your hunk?! Well done Chris, well done! Love you!

  4. My goodness, you HAVE had a wonderful week! How very fun...all of it!

  5. What a wonderful week you've had! I love that you all dressed up for Chick-Fil-A. :) So thankful that Silas has recovered. What a special little boy.

    By the way, old friends are best. Glad you had a chance to spend time with your friend.

  6. What fun it was to get a glimpse into your fun adventure! I love seeing little Silas looking so happy and healthy!

    You and your friend look great! Can't imagine how much fun you all had! Spending time on a boat, with good friends, what could be better!

    The best part of this post, were the last words..."I am content." Thanks for sharing it all with us.

  7. I like the way you ended this one.

    I'm content....That pretty much sums it all up.

    I loved the cow photo best of everything, but your adventure on the way home sounded pretty fun too! (I have a little phobia of long bridges so being backed up on one might have given me the heebie jeebies. )

    And... Ringo Starr? Very cool indeed.
