We also had the luck and were blessed to get some time in with my cousin Stephanie today before we left as well! Steph's daughter, Bella, was our flower girl at our wedding last year. Her Husband, Ben, Just returned from 10 months in Iraq, he is only home for a few weeks though, he has another several months of his tour to finish. They drove up to Lewiston from L.A. Thursday and Friday to see his family, so we were able to spend about an hour with Steph and Bella. I was so happy! Hopefully, we'll be able to see them again when they drive back down.
We also found a very yummy new restaurant in New Meadow (just north of McCall) on the way home, we were exhausted and starving, so we had some BBQ at Sagebrush BBQ on the main street through town. it was sooo good!!! They even let us sit out on the patio with Abby at our table, we were the only patrons eating out there, but it was still nice of them. try the potato skins, incredible!
Overall we had a wonderful, long, tiring weekend! The trip was worth it, but we are truly glad to be home.

I truly enjoy our camping trips now, even when I know that they are more of scouting trips for Brent. I usually end up just trailing him up and down hillsides watching for elk or deer all day... but I have fun. Abby loves it, she could live her entire life on the mountain. This trip she actually was coming back into camp one morning with Brent when I heard him start yelling at her, she ran past going 100 mph. She had seen a Buck in our camp, just walking buy, enjoying his breakfast, she got about 20 ft from it when he realized that Abby was coming after him, I guess she chased him up the next hill and into the woods. Not exactily what Brent wants her to do, but she was very protective and proud that she had chased off some wild animal. Good girl Abby.
Loving the fish mom caught! she just kept licking them. Whenever we go fishing she sits and watches for a line to bob and if you stand up and say something she is right there because she knows you have a fish on, she loves it!!
Lil in her cave and abby trying to cuddle, this is usually how it is, Abby will lay down with lil and lil will get up and leave, but occasionally she will stay and just let the cuteness happen.
