Bruneau State Park, ID

From our very adventurous trip to the mountains of Idaho, we came down 1000s of feet to Brunea State Park, about 30 miles outside of Boise. We chose this location so that we could have Ken’s cousins family (the Ellis gang) and our friends (who we met in Brazil – the Wilson family) join us. We had three camp spots all alongside each other. It was a great way to get together with people and just relax as no one had house chores they had to worry about! The kids had fun sliding down the sand dunes – the tallest in North America!

Aileen (Ken’s cousin), Craig and their daughter McKenzie lived in Long Beach California and moved to Idaho a few years ago. They could not be happier. They fully live the Idaho lifestyle, from fishing to hunting. When I told Aileen about my encounter with javalinas in Arizona, she asked if I shot them for dinner. “Ahhh, NO!” Apparently, they make good food!!

My friend Veronica, husband Scott and kids Matias and Sophia also came for the weekend. I met Veronica in Brazil while we were both pregnant. It was so great to see her after many years and we picked up just where we left off in Brazil! Sophia is an amazing and beautiful little girl, having survived a brain tumor 18 months ago. (Many of you offered your support throughout this very difficult time). It was great to get to see her play, ride her bike, draw and write. She’s a true inspiration!

Now off to the city of Boise!
