Sensational Summer Day

Little Joe in the act of stealing stuff from inside the tipi near Hawkins Point on Lake Pend Oreille and hiding it.  Only problem was I tracked him down with this particular theft.

Joe stayed with the rest of his family ovenight at a tipi on the lake shore. 

Some of us attended Julyamish in Coeur d'Alene, always a wonderful regional Native American cultural event. 

Nothing better than Wood's German sausages grilled over an open fire next to a beautiful lake. 

A small portion of my day involved going to Dover Bay to visit with members of the Sandpoint High Class of 1976.  I had such a good time that I was definitely wishing there were more hours in the day.  The alums put on a wonderful reunion.

Welcoming note and flowers from Billie for the family members who stayed at her tipi on Lake Pend Oreille last night. 

Kiwi agrees that Oregano is lovely this time of year.

Lots of vendors selling their wares and showing their talent at Julyamish.

These gals will never tell!  Coeur d'Alene Tribal member and royalty aficionado LoVina, niece Laura, daughter-in-law Debbie and Swiss Miss aka Laura.

Cuteness at its canine best.

Obligatory "outlaw" photo of Kirsten who's a judge in real life.  Thanks, Phil, for the glass of wine.

Sometimes it's better to snooze amidst all the activity.

At the end of a busy and fun-filled day.  Lots of miles covered and countless special moments experienced. I do believe a good time was had by all.
