Idaho Getaway

This weekend, Nathan and I had the opportunity to go on a much needed mini vacation. My wonderful in-laws offered us their timeshare in the mountains of northern Idaho. They also offered to watch all of our children so we could fully relax and take advantage of all of the amenities offered by the resort. Yes, I realize I am incredibly blessed to have such amazing in-laws. Additionally, Ty, Jenny, and little Anna also come, which made the trip even more enjoyable. We are so lucky that our brother/brother-in-law and sister-in-law are two of our best friends.

When we arrived at Stoneridge Resort, my first thought was "Dirty Dancing!"
It really felt like we were at the resort featured in the movie (except for the whole dancing bit and Patrick Swayze). There were a number of activities to do, a meet and greet, and the atmosphere was very family friendly. Nathan and I mostly enjoyed the typical vacation luxuries: the salt water pool (so much better than chlorine), hot tub and sauna. We also had fun playing a number of shuffleboard matches and a game of miniature golf.

As it turns out, we both love shuffleboard. We are officially 70 years old, I know.

We ate good food, celebrated Ty's birthday, stayed up way too late, slept in, and enjoyed ourselves. 

One of the highlights of the trip was playing racquetball with Ty for over an hour. Afterwards, I could hardly walk. Two days later, I was forced to crawl up the stairs because my thighs and entire body continue to ache. I think this means I need to start working out. The other highlight was eating Ty's delicious birthday cake that Jenny made. Imagine a giant Oreo...two layers of chocolate cake topped with butter cream Oreo icing. It was heavenly.

As always, though, it is good to be home. 


  1. I'm still so stupid jealous of how well your cell service worked. I was DYING without anything. Hahaha. It was so much fun being there with you guys. Thanks for really making it a great weekend!
