Annual trip to Oregon: Donnelly

After 3 or 4 thorough nit-pickings, 1 pesticide treatment, and 2 mayonnaise/cetaphil treatments, we felt we were clean enough to head up to Donnelly, Idaho for a family retreat. It was nice to get away after 4 very stressful days. Donnelly is just over 2 hours from my parents' house. We rented a few houses at the resort there, and just chilled for a few days.

Weighing in at 48 lbs, Hattie was close enough to the 50 lb weight requirement to go on the white water rafting trip. I was worried that she would be thoroughly terrified, but she was a champ and wasn't scared a all once we got going.
Twister tournament...which always ends in tears for the little kids.
And somehow the grandkids love to get in Grandpa's "boat" and explore the "river." I don't know how he does it but he keeps 6 of them entertained at once.
Each house had its own hot tub, so the kiddos jumped in whenever they could.
Definitely a relaxing and much needed part of my 2 weeks out West.
