Vacation to visit grandson in Idaho!

We have just returned from a few days in Idaho, to see our family who now live in Boise!

We stopped in the capitol building which was fabulous...all that marble and a lovely old downtown around it!  So much to do but we were there for a reason....

This little guy was the main focus of our trip.....Wes, almost 10 months old!

When we went for a walk around their neighborhood, I was very impressed with the lushness and abundance of the plants and flowers.  It is a high dessert climate.  Here a clematis the like of which I have never seen before!

Cherry trees were loaded with fruit already!

Back at home, he demonstrates a new toy from his other grandparents!  Way cool! It has flashing lights and gears! Playschool!

Another evening we took our long walk in the fabulous rose garden and green space down by the Boise River.

Truly, Boise is a lovely, easy going small city with a lot to offer!


Saturday we drove to McCall, ID where there was a 2-day mountain bike racing event.  Dr. R  set up his  tent and gave free consultations to anyone looking to improve their well-being!

That night, we headed into McCall for a meal at a Mexican restaurant overlooking the lake. [You can see the lake reflected in the windows!]  Absolutely perfect! (mango margarita for moi!)

Later we strolled by the lake.....

and rested in the cool breeze....

while watching the cutest baby in the world* discover the joys of a sandy beach!

(*the cutest baby in the world is always whichever grandchild you happen to be with!)
