We wanted this trip to be nice and relaxing and so we took our time driving up. On Monday morning, we had breakfast and then headed up towards Stanley. We stopped in a little town called Idaho City, which is about 45 minutes outside of Boise so that I could feed Bauer. The boys had fun playing on old mining equipment, looking at the water, going over the bridges & playing on the stage.
After Bauer was all fed, we got back in the van and drove for another hour or so, then we found a nice bumpy (Keagan was very excited about it being bumpy) dirt road that had lots of trees and was by the river. We got out our picnic lunch and had lunch. Make sure you notice Keagan lounging.
After eating, the boys went over to the water and had fun throwing rocks in the water.
Then we set up a camping chair for me under a tree by the water so I could feed Bauer again before finishing our drive. While I feed Bauer, the boys went for a walk and found sticks (which Keagan enjoyed fighting tree stumps with).
About an hour later, we arrived in Stanley. We checked into our hotel and relaxed for a little bit. Then we went walking around the little city looking in gift shops and having fun. After dinner, we drove over to Red Fish Lake to scout out camping spots.
The next morning, we drove over to Red Fish and the boys got busy fishing.
They also had fun fishing off the dock.
