To celebrate Grandma and Grandpa G.'s 50th wedding anniversary, they treated the whole Grassli fam to a wonderful week at Lake Cascade in Idaho! (Shouldn't it have been the other way around - us treating them?! They are far too generous!)
We all had such a WONDERFUL time basking in the sun, riding on the Chugg's boat, wake-boarding/tubing/bare-footing/surfing, relaxing, laughing, eating lots of yummy food, and spending quality time together!
This lake was the perfect setting for a vacation - we had a house large enough to fit everyone, a private beach to lay on, and the water was glass all day. The time of the trip was perfect - a couple days after Michael and I finished summer term finals; we were definitely in need of some down time! I was taken back every day by the great beauty all around us. Heavenly Father must really love us!
THANK YOU!! THANK YOU!! THANK YOU!! to everyone who made it such a memorable week.
