Day 584 of Life on the Road as a Family, only 3 days until we’re home…

IMG_2783Nate and Eliza hanging out on Tablerock and checking out the Boise foothills.  It was a hot hike up to the top!  Ryan grew up nearby and Carrie does it all the time, but it was the first time for the rest of us. The view was worth the hike!

IMG_2786Our LAST hike of the trip!  Wah!  I’ve been weepy for the last 7 days. Last this, last that, oh, it’s been a BLAST.  Every minute.  I’d do it all over again.

IMG_2797We hiked through the quarry on the way back down and the view was beautiful the whole way.  Creepy to be able to look into the Old Pen.  The city of Boise is behind them.

IMG_2806After a picnic lunch in the park, we walked through the Nature Center.  Nate was the only mature enough to take this photo and not be in it.  We’ve seen cutouts all over the country, but never of owls – so funny!

IMG_2821The night before we were able to hug Carrie’s side of the family, and tonight we hugged some of Ryan’s siblings and his dear parents.  Just the nicest people ever and we wish they all lived next door.  They were all grateful for Dan’s sacrifice and were kind about saying so.  For Dan it wasn’t a sacrifice though, it was a gift he was glad to give.  Seeing Ryan with his family made Dan’s kidney donation to Ryan even more poignant.

Another fun day in Boise; we’re exhausted!
