Family Vacation 2010

Last week we went on our much needed family vacation. It was hard to slip it in between finding a place to live in Seattle, working, and packing all our stuff for our move. Every summer my family goes to Island Park, Idaho for vacation. My grandparents have a cabin in Macks Inn that we stay at. The kids were in heaven! We played in the river, fished, and spent lots of time together. This picture is from the dock, it is so beautiful! This post is going to be mostly pictures.
Tanner loved trying to find minnows and tadpoles in the water.
Love him! It is so nice to be able relax as a family.
Aubree, with my little sisters.
They took Aubs across the river. It was freezing!
Sweet Aubs! She loved jumping off the dock.
Tanner and cousin Jay looking at the bucket of minnows.
Aubree had so much fun playing with Jay.
Tanner is such a funny boy. I think he is sticking his tongue out at his shadow.
Travis loved "fishing" off the dock.
Andrew hanging out at the dock with my mom.
Our family tradition is for the babies to take baths in the sink at the cabin. Andrew loved his sink bath.
After church on Sunday we attempted some quick family pictures.
It was way too hot and sunny, and I couldn't find any place with good lighting. This was the best we got.
We headed to Big Springs (a place with huge fish under a bridge) and Aubree went there with a big group while the boys napped and we went later with the boys while Aubree stayed at the cabin.
The water is freezing.
Love this girl!
Aubs and Jay doing their serious faces.
The boys at Big Springs with Sara and Leslie.
Trav always has to wear his hat.
Travis and Tanner looking at the fish. Travis' shoes were too big and while he was climbing one fell into the river. It started floating down the river and Travis was crying.
Travis crying while Sara is climbing into the freezing cold spring water to get his croc.
Sara got the shoe!
Travis and Leslie
Eric and Tann looking at the big fish.
A few days later we went to Mesa Falls. We took more pictures and I will post them once I get them from my mom's camera.
Eric and my dad took the kids fishing. They loved it, especially Tanner.
They each "caught" (reeled in) a fish on this trip.
The video above is Tanner catching his first fish by himself. Ignore my voice. It is way too loud. Tanner wanted to go fishing all day/everyday. As we were sitting there fishing a moose came out of the nowhere. It was pretty awesome.
