Our vacations

johann  on the lake in McCall

We had a great time spending the week in McCall with family.  The last day we were they we spent most the day on the lake.  We let the kids play in the raft.  My son really wanted to fish but there was not a good place to take him, he was sad about it.  So Johann loaded him up in the raft and paddled out into the lake a bit and let him cast his line over  and over.  He did not catch anything but came back happy as can be that he at least got to try. Johann is so good with the kids, it is so nice to have an extra set of hands around to help.

We only have 2 weeks left with him, we sure are going to miss him.

Johann and the kids on the jetskyWe have been having a blast in McCall, Idaho.  The last few days we have been playing hard and enjoying the beautiful mountains.  The lake is warm enough for the kids to swim in, and they have all decided that jet skiing is pretty much amazing.  Both riding on the jet ski and riding the tube behind the jet ski.

johann catching frogsWe took the kids fishing, but did not catch anything  other than a few frogs. Our poor kids go fishing every time we go to the mountains but we  never catch a fish.  But on the bright side, we are pretty darn good at catching polliwogs and frogs.  After a long day on the lake we come home to Smores around the camp fire.

Mustache in the woods, Fun family reunion ideas #FamilyReunion, #NatureWalk, #Mustache

We are in McCall Idaho for a Family Reunion with my husbands side of the family.  The “old people” went to go golfing, but the kids and I went to go on a nature walk with Granny and Papa.  The kids had a blast exploring the forest. Some of the fun things the kids found were sticks, rocks, pine cones, wild flowers and moss on the trees.  We made “Moss Mustaches” which the girls thought were  super silly.   Nature walks are a great way for kids to learn about there surroundings and the things that grow and live  in the forest.

Big Juds in Boise IdahoWhen Johann’s brother was here 2 years ago he did the Big Jud’s burger challenge.   You have 30 minutes to eat a HUGE Big Jud burger with a 1 lb beef patty.  You also have to drink a large soda and a large basket of tots or fries.   Just to put it into perspective… our WHOLE family of 6 orders this same meal, and we share it.  It is a TON of food.   But Johann was very excited to take on this challenge.Big Juds in Boise IdahoTen minutes into the challenge he was over half way done with the burger and tots, he was sure he had this challenge beat.  But he began to chew slower and it became harder to swallow.  As the clock ticked down he just could not get the last few tots and small bite of burger down.  He was not able to complete the challenge like his brother did.  Worst part is he became rather sick after and it was a long bumpy ride back home.   I think it will be awhile before he wants a burger again.

The next day we went to a pizza joint for lunch and he did not eat much.  BUT he did feel well enough to go shooting.  This time they went clay shooting.
