Who’d have thought that there was so much to see in little ol’ Idaho?? But low and behold, Nate’s work has brought us to another gorgeous part of our state. I’d heard of Stanley before… I heard GORGEOUS lakes, mountains, parks, rivers, canyons… but I’d never heard of Mackay, a little town past Stanley. It was a wedding there that got our family into the car on a road trip to the unknown. We left early so that we would have time to stop and explore and picnic and obviously… take pictures. ; ) Here’s what we got on our trip up:We found this amazingly clear and clean river… we could not believe how beautiful it was.
When we got to the hotel, Jace was in SUCH a good mood. He slept almost the entire drive up, and so he had SOO much energy to expend. We had such a blast playing and talking and singing with our gorgeous little boy!He had a FULL range of emotions and a complete set of facial expressions to go with them! Now how the heck did we get such a tow-head?!?!On the morning of the wedding, Nate and I had some time to go exploring and visit the Pass Creek National Park. It was beautiful and breathtaking… and just BIG; everything was in such a grand scheme, larger than life.
The wedding went absolutely fantastic… obviously. Nate can’t do anything less than that. We headed back the day after that and stopped a few times to snag some family photos. I have to say that the most overwhelming smell overcame us as we were walking through the woods getting our shots. The pine and the wood and the lake and, augh! It was just intoxicating. I wish I could smell it again! Here is me waiting for Nate to set the interval timer…. just singing and dancing in the hillside! Would the caption be: “You make me feel like a natural woman?” Haha!!
OH! Look at those THIGHS!!! I’ve just got to chew them up!!
We HAVE to go back to these hot springs!! AMAZING!
