Escape to the Sawtooths and Redfish Lake

After record-breaking heat, a trip to Redfish Lake was just what we needed. This post is brought to you in partnership with Merrick Pet Care. All thoughts and opinions are my own. It's amazing how some things work out when you don't make any plans. As a self-described type-A, I like plans. Knowing where I'm going to be and when, for how long, etc., is important. Without these plans I can turn into a complete basket case, but often that's where…

Kayaking the Payette River – Wrap-up to our Boise Weekend

This is a long time coming considering Kyle and Kendrich completed their race a little over two weeks ago. How is June already almost over!? Craziness... I was expecting two half-Ironman finishers to be pretty beat for a while following the race. And they were... for like, a day. So what did we do our last two days in town? Hiked around Tablerock and whitewater kayaked the Payette River. [caption id="attachment_1510" align="alignnone" width="625"] Had I seen what was ahead, I wouldn't…

I wish I would have written down more throughout the day, but chasing them around and trying to get photos was enough for me to handle. Although I've…

Road Trip: Boise 70.3

The big day is almost here! Kyle and his brother, Kendrich, are competing in the Boise half-Ironman tomorrow. We spent all day Thursday in the car heading down. I don't know if it's because we made the drive so much in college or what, but there's just something about the drive from Cd'A to Boise that I just love. Of course the scenery is gorgeous, for the most part, but it makes me feel peaceful and at ease. It's probably…

Road Trip: Boise

It's time for another addition of my Road Trip series. To add to the collection that includes, Seattle, Boise, McCall, Sandpoint, and Montana - here's another Boise addition! (I swear someday I will travel further than the Northwest!) [caption id="attachment_1384" align="alignnone" width="625"] There may not be a whole lotta trees or water like northern Idaho - but there is something very magical about the never-ending rolling hills.[/caption] Back in the day, Kyle went to Boise State University. One of his former…
