Enjoying some HEAT {finally} @ Priest Lake

Earlier this month we had a very impromptu camping trip to Priest Lake. We'd intended to go later in the month, but Jason's work schedule got changed unexpectedly and we weren't going to be able to go as planned. Booo :( But after finding that the weather was going to be good, we were able to reserve one of the few remaining campsites and headed on up. It was a wonderfully WARM weekend with the added bonus of getting to go to one of Luke's friends birthday party and spend time with our awesome Priest Lake community from last summer.

{Since then the weather has been nasty enough that I've had to put our flannel sheets and down comforter back onto our bed - and this is supposed to be summer. Idaho-Grrr!}

Daddy's helper :)

Luke immediately wants to get into his mummy bag even though it was 90 degrees outside.

The beach is a short walk from our campsite.

 Ahhh ... family campground time. So thankful to one of our Priest Lake friends who loaned us the walker/saucer for Mabel to use.

5 am in our tent ...

Love the lake in the morning!

 Awesome boat ride compliments of the Hayes Family!! Mabel was not a fan and cried nearly the whole time until she fell asleep (she DID have a hat on, but it blew off right as we took her picture).

A trip to Priest Lake wouldn't be complete without the trek up to the Lionhead State Park beach with its ultra soft white sand beach and sparkling clear water. We had the beach completely to ourselves & even I couldn't resist getting into the chilly waters for a swim. It was wonderful!!

We are missing this special summer home very much.
