Summer #3 Idaho/Washington

In May we rented a car with some friends,and headed up to Couer d'Alene, Idaho for a weekend of fun! On Sunday, we drove to Spokane to see the play Wicked. I was so excited to see it. I've been wanting to see it for a long time. My dream finally came true! It was just as good as I thought it would be!

This is us at the play! You can't tell, but the stage is just behind us. Disregard all the red eyes in this shot.

Before the play we went to dinner and then took a tra ride over the spokane fall. The water was really high, and the river was raging. I've been there a few times, but have never seen it this high or fast.

This doesn't do it justice, but you can tell that the river is going crazy! Our little tram thingy got drenched around this point. It was pretty though!

We also hit an amuzement park called Silverwood. This is after the river raft ride. We had a total of 6 adults and 2 teenagers in our raft and boy did we get soaked! We had almost a foot of water in the bottom of the raft at one point, and the other family was using flip flops to get it out. It made it so ever drop and rapid we approached just soaked us. It was fun, and wet, and after a while it was cold. We rode the roller coaster called tremors at the end of the day, and it was awesome. The picture is classic, but after that I was freezing! It was a great day.

Peek-a-boo! This was taken while Jeff and I were on a coaster. I like it!

The first day in Couer d'Alene we went to lake Couer d'Alene and took a short hike called Tubb's Hill. It was a great day, and the view was gorgeous. I look a little weird in this pic, but I was tired and not feeling too well. Later that day we took a cruise on the lake and got some sun. The lake is pretty, but I was itching to go on a ski boat!

This is the resort on the lake. Our friend Jared used to work here! Hoe pretty! We tried to go to one of their restaurants for dessert, but they were closed by the time we got there. Bummer! I was excited for it!
