We decided months ago that we wanted to go on a family trip this summer before Tanner left on his mission.
I have great memories of visiting the Seattle area with my family as a kid, so that's where we decided to go. Our dance group planned a trip to the Couer D'alene area around the same time, which just happens to be about halfway to Seattle so we joined with them at Silverwood Theme Park & Triple Play Family Fun Center. It was the perfect trip for our range of age groups in the family!
I was really hoping the whole family would be able to come with us, but it was really too difficult for Dex & Akayla to get so much work off and afford the whole big trip as a newly married couple.
But Corina & Daniel were able to come, and we even flew Adri from Zion's National Park so she could come too!
We had a blast!
Definitely not a relaxing vacation, but we packed in A LOT of fun!
You would think packing 12 people in a motor home for 10 days (Corina & Daniel slept in their own tent) would cause a lot of contention, but we had a lovely time together with very few issues!
