Ceour d'alene trip with the Averett side

We got home Sunday and then left again weds July 3 for our next trip with the Averett side up to Coeur D'Alene Idaho up to Ryan and Kims house. We drove through the night and made it in the morning of the 4th of July. While Ryan and Tyler went golfing with Ryan A. the rest of our family went with Aunt Kim, Josh and Andrew to watch Rachel in the 4th of July parade to promote a play she will be in. It was a great parade and the kids loved it until we all started feeling like we were melting and left a little early. Treven was a little dissapointed that they didn't throw candy, but atleast we got to see the Blazin Divas and the best band ever! They had an old man in a toga and Captain America! Idaho knows how to PARTY! After the parade we meet the Colton Family down at Lake Coeru D'Alene and had fun  playing at the beach and getting some tubing in with the kids. We had dinner on the beach and then loaded up on Uncle Trent's boat to go and watch the fireworks out on the lake. It was the coolest thing! Not only were the fireworks fantastic but the sound coming off the mountain from the fireworks were so loud it was incredible!

Friday we spent the day out on the beach and boat having a good time wakeboarding, tubing, and surfing. After some ice cream we went back and boated some more before heading out to the movies. It was a great day being with all my family.

Saturday was Josh's baptism day so we finished up boating and got to see Matthew play some baseball and then it was time for the baptism.  It was a great baptism and Kim gave a wonderful talk while Ryan shared a very touching story about his confirmation of the Holy Ghost. After the baptism we had a BBQ and then it was time to drive back home through the night. The kids did really good, and we can't wait to see the Averetts at the end of July when they come for a week and then we get to go hang out in Vernal with the Coltons for Jaron's baptism. It was a great weekend of boating, talking, laughing, hanging out, and being a family!
