Oh What Do You Do In The Summertime?

I know people have all kinds of plans for the summer. Crazy plans like spending time in San Diego or at Disneyland. Well we really aren’t like most people, I mean who would want to hang at the beach when they can go play in the snow?


That’s right…the Snow. Gotta love Idaho in June.


Why yes that is a huge snow drift that is covering half of the road on Mount Harrison.

And since it is summertime and playing in the snow wasn’t really in the plans I didn’t pack quite the right clothes.


I packed 4 pairs of shoes for this trip…all of them flip flops. Hello? I’m from Arizona.

Shorts and flip flops. Perfect for the snow. At least I did pack jackets.

The kiddos had a blast.

Once the kidlets got used to the cold they had fun too.

Once Ham figured out that snow can be shaped into a ball and thrown he was a happy camper.


Big J decided to make a snow angel lizard.

LaLa decided that she could match that and made a snow angel frog.

At least the snow IS melting. The run-off has Bennett Springs running pretty strong.

On our way down the mountain we saw these guys.
