i’ve finally gone through all of the photos i took while visiting my family in northern idaho late last year. i was there for about a month, spending a little time with a few of my siblings and their families. it was so much fun getting a small view into their lives and getting to know them a little better as adults and as parents. i’m always amazed at how much of their personalities play out in their kids, as shown by tiana and lily goofing around in these photos. we are a … charismatic people.
for what seemed like a short visit, a lot happened. there was a birthday, a move into a new house, a baby was born, a lot of pie was eaten (specifically, on thanksgiving.)
it was hectic, like everything in my family, so also very comforting…the trip started out in post falls, idaho with my sister susie and her daughters, star and lily, who is shown below with her pumpkin pancakes with the family cat, twinkle
my sister wanted to go to a gun range for her birthday. this is me hiding in the cornernext stop was lewiston, idaho, where i got to see my sister debbi and my brother pete, who recently moved back to idaho after his job took him to california for a few years. this is pete’s youngest, brice, who proved a great photo subject .. until he got sick of the camera and told me to stop.
my youngest brother ej lives in orofino, idaho with his wife amy. when i visited they had just had a baby boy. i already posted a little bit about him here.
the trip ended with susie’s move into her new house. i love this picture of them, camping out in their new digs. they were so excited they couldn’t wait for their furniture to get moved in.
