Time in McCall

After a week in Utah, we drove 7 hours north to McCall, Idaho, where my family shares a condo with my extended family. It was my family's turn to be there, and no one else was interested in coming up, so we took advantage. We had a few days there by ourselves; then my sister Laura, who lives in Iowa, arrived with her 6 children. The kids had fun riding Grandpa's boat into town to visit the legendary Ice Cream Alley.


Hattie was pretty excited about wearing a life jacket for the first time


And she did pretty well on the boat ride


Cousins Grace and Myra walking with Hattie


Myra, Grace, James, Paul and Hattie


Our huge banana split...but they forgot the bananas!


Hattie certainly ate her share


Hattie with Grace...one of my favorite pictures


The view of the lake


Myra and Grace


Anson loved playing in the sand, but Hattie was paranoid about all the sand on her feet and preferred the swimming pool



The pictures really don't do this place justice. I grew up visiting McCall often and consider it a second home. I'm excited to share this place with Hattie.

Oh this looks soooo fun! I am totally jealous. Also I miss you a lot. It is lonely around here! I need to call Chelsea and see if I can catch her on a non busy day!
