Hot springs

For the past couple of weeks Dennen and I have tried numerous times to take Finn swimming. Our hopes had been dashed because every time we tried the pools were closed. We had wanted to go to hot springs but it has been way too cold outside for Finn. Today was our day though! It reached a balmy 40 degrees and we ventured to some hot springs in Idaho.

Almost there...



























The hot springs are in this canyon, and the reservoir is called the Oneida Narrows. It was a pretty drive and we even saw a whole bunch of swans on the reservoir. Swans, what the?! Anyway, we had a bunch of fun, and so did Finn we think (sometimes he's pretty emotionless).

My sis Rachel came along too. Side-note: lately, a couple of people have said that Rachel and I look like twins. Really? Do you see it?




























Dennen squinting into the sun, and Aunty Rachel telling Finn, "there, there, everything is going to be alright."
In other news, Finn has learned to hold his own bottle! Just look at that little stud relaxin' on his salmon pillow. He loves feeding himself too, and gets so excited about it. He kicks his feet and shakes his whole body to watch the milk slosh around (kind of a messy business).

bummer josh and i couldn't make it. looks like tons of fun and warm :) i always thought rachel looked more like me but i guess not. i think if two different people thought you were twins not knowing you two even knew each other you MUST look like each other. i dunno but it is crazy!

Alli - They are about 30 miles north of Preston, ID. So, it's about an hour drive from Logan. There are some closer ones that are only about 40 min from Logan too. If you guys ever venture up this way, we'd love to go again!

Oh, don't you LOVE it when they can hold their own bottles?? It took Macie forever, but it was nice when she finally got it down. Plus it looks so cute. :) Now you've got me itchin to go to some hot springs. Looks awesome! Oh, and I don't know if I'd say you and Rachel look like twins but you can most definitely tell you are sisters!

Amazing! They look wonderful. I've always wanted to find some close hot springs--thanks for the info.
