One last summertime trip to Yahk. Gosh, I love visiting my parents! I love these trips because they are so relaxing and good, ya know? There's just nothing to distract from the relationships. I could play cribbage with my parents all night long! We swam in the river and it was idyllic. Thanks for having us out Mom and Dad! Love you!

Summer isn't complete for us without a stop out at Cocollala Lake to visit Jonica and Georgia. Naturally, we had an amazing time!

After looking at the Dry Falls which was really educational (and kind of boring to my kids) stop, we swam in a lake and it was wonderful! I'm so grateful for this time I spent with my family!

We finished off this day with a bad meal at a hole in the wall diner and a gorgeous sunset. Overall, net positive!

One of our tourist stops was to Dry Falls. A huge glacial lake filled up in Montana many times and was stopped by an ice dam which broke repeatedly sending an insane amount of water through Washington and into the Pacific Ocean. This water carved and influenced the landscape we now live in. It was really fascinating to learn about it!

Our last summer hoorah was the the interior of Washington to the Grand Coulee area. It was a breathtaking landscape and we had so much fun! We spent 2 nights there and every day we same at Steamboat Rock State park. We loved the sandy beach and the water. There's an island that can be swam to and we all liked to do that. A couple times I had Maeve hold on to my swimsuit strap and I swam her out. One time, Conor went with Greta and Holly, but left Maeve behind. The entire time they were gone, Maeve was where she couldn't touch trying her hardest to swim to them. She was determined! That girl loves the water. Summer has ended but our discussion about swimsuits, swimming and lakes may never end.
