You know those places that are so special to your family, it just feels your heart is going to overflowing?


Island park has become one of those places for us. I usually go alone, with all the kids, this year it was alone with most of the kids. We stay with my bestie in her family cabin. We roast s'moritos, ride the 4 wheeler, swing in the trees, ride bikes, sit by the river and just soak in the magic. 

This year we added kayaking to our list of fun. I'll share where we got on and off below.


First, tradition, we always stop for fries before we reach Idaho.

Oh, three year old Wells, you are the cutest!

There are random trails all over so we just let the kids go crazy. Riz and Berd both drove the 4 wheeler for the first time. 

This years Island Park crew.

22 years of friendship. Seriously the bestest friend I could ever ask for.

This is the beautiful river that we floated. We put in where most people were getting out, right before the big white bridge. There is a parking lot, but it is a fee area.

We started there and continued on for several hours to the private doc.  If you go up river a few miles, then you could ride down and end where we started.
