walking on my parent's property

i spent 2 wonderful weeks in idaho with my parents. we love it there. navy plays outside all day picking flowers ("no no no!" she tells me when she does. but it doesn't seem to stop her), chasing the dog and cats and pulling their tails (once again i hear "no no no" but it didn't stop the whole time), and going for walks. we went to the nighbor's house and saw there cows, chickens, bunnys and cats. navy loved it. my sister even came up from portland for a few days and it was soooo fun to have her. navy loves her De De.  mom had one of the weeks i was there off from work too so i got to see a lot more of her on this trip then i did on the last few. i love my mom. we are similar. thanks to dad we ate so much good food lot's of it having to do with huckleberries since my dad is obsessed with picking them. if anyone wants a huckleberry milkshake or smoothie, or pancakes, or pie, come on over cuz dad sent me home with a ton.

so i just got back from my parent's house in idaho and i have lots of pictures and stories to share, but that can wait. i just read the nicest, most heart warmng and tear inducing post from nicole about my sister and i and it required an immediate response. she has been my best friend since seventh grade. she is my better half. i know that term is usually reserved for spouses, but nicole has always made me want to be a better person. never mind WWJD, for me it was always WWND (what would nicole do?) she is such a good example to me. and loved me no matter what. we have so many memories. chris' cafe for early morning breakfast. i would go to her house at like 7 am in the summer time, sneak into her room and wake her up and we would go out to breakfast in our pajamas. nicole one of my favorite memories is laying with your mom in bed after a party and telling her all about it. she would gossip with us just like she was a sixteen year old girl. remember when your mom put on a big hoodie and came with us to a party at the beach? haha! anyways, look how cute these old pics are that i got off my parents computer. i love you nicole. don't those pictures just take you back in time?
