I went to Coeur D’Alene with Joyce (Doug the mule’s wife) to spend the 4th of July with friends. They live on the Spokane River and it was beautiful. We sat on their deck and watched people go up and down the river in really cool boats and had great food and great company. We took several rides on the boat and saw incredible houses although the one above took the prize 🙂 It was a very cool weekend and we had to wear heavy coats when we went to watch the fireworks on Lake Coeur D’Alene but it was worth it. The show was incredible and something I will always remember. We had a perfect spot sitting on the boat with the displays just overhead. I couldn’t ask for a better last 4th of July holiday.
