Lucas Family Fun, Lake Coeur' d'Alene and Liberty Lake

We combined several trips we have been meaning to take this summer into one weekend.  We visited Erik's sister Brenda and her kids in Spokane, WA, went to my cousin Lauren's wedding in Flathead Lake, MT, and then went to Glacier National Park in MT.  We had a ton of fun visiting Brenda and Matt and their boys Mathew, Jackson, and Gavin in Spokane.

Our first day there we drove over to Coeur' d'Alene, ID where Matt works as a physical therapist.  We picked him up from work and spent the afternoon at Lake Coeur' d'Alene, hiking along the bank. We hiked to a nice enclosure where the boys did some serious swimming and jumping off the rocks.  

Another day we went to Liberty Lake to so some Fishing/swimming/picnicing/hiking around the lake.  It was a glorious day, we we caught a fish almost everytime we cast.  The only problem was that each fish we caught was only about 3-4 inches long.  But Gavin loved catching the little "Gav Fish" beacause they were little like him.  

It was really great getting to know the Lucas boys a little better.  Even though Erik and I have been married 4 years we don't see his family very much and when we are together it is usually the entire family, where it is hard to get to know each other on a personal level.  So it was a lot of fun to hang out with them this weekend. We had a blast, I would love to live up in this part of the US, although I am pretty sure the winters would be a struggle.

I think it is hilarious you do not show pics from the wedding. You are so NOT the girlie girl, Nevitt!
