Sandpoint for Labor Day

Our good friends Danny & Jess invited us up to Sandpoint, Idaho for an adults-only Labor Day getaway. It is such an honor to even be invited to this place, it is SICK! Sick like amazing, like crazy, and ridiculous. Sick like every few minutes you have to stop & look around & remind yourself that you are not in fact guest staring on The Hills. There's the main house, the cottage and the tree house. Yes, the tree house. I know, right? All right right on Lake Pend Oreille. The actual town of Sandpoint is beyond darling. Lots of good antique stores, mom & pop diners and a surprising amount of hippies for Idaho. On the (incredibly long) drive up, (yes, I flew home. That's how spoiled I am.) we stopped in Anaconda Montana so the boys could do some once in a lifetime golfing. Kiesha & Donna & I wasted our time while they golfed at one of the more ghetto spas I've ever been to. But I did receive without a doubt the BEST massage
We went to Joel's for some breakfast burritos, enjoyed the farmer's market (how awesome is it that they still have a copy of the ten commandments in a public place?) got some flowersate like gourmands at each mealdid a bunch of hot tubbing roasted s'mores by the lakeroasted each other by the lake the boys played lots of bocce ball the girls sat around & talked
went out on the boat & jet ski and Becky (Jessica's mom & probably one of my top 10 favorite people on the entire freaking planet) made THE BEST cinnamon rolls ever, sorry, Mom. (among other amazing things. can you say Next Food Network Star?)

oh! and we also, on our last night took the boat over to the other side of the lake & went to dinner at a restaurant called 41 South. It has a dock you park your boat at then eat out on the patio wrapped up in blankets & the food is... holy cow... where to even start? Let's just say Lobster Crepes, amazing Crab Cakes, Lobster Bisque, fall off the bone ribs, asparagus, smashed idaho potatoes, holy crow. You want to go to there.

We had so much fun getting to know Nick & Keisha and Jerry & Donna. We of course already knew & loved Caroline & Clint (and Nora!) and Joe & Brittany. Thank you guys sooo much. Let's make it an annual event, mmmkay?
