Just got back from an amazing trip at Cascade Lake! Every year, for as long as I can remember, my family has vacationed here for our annual "Lewis Family Reunion." This was the first year that Swede was able to join us, so I wanted to share a few pics from his "newbie" experience :)

I will admit -- we are all a bit silly ...
Swede out early, gettin' in a good morning ski
Yes, Swede truly loved his tube rides
I might have had to push Swede off this bridge to get him to jump with me...
"Flying" off the zipline! Nice form Swede :)
On Sunday we all gathered together to play "Minute to Win it" The following 3 pictures and 2 videos are us trying to complete each task in under 60 seconds... this was SUPER fun ! I would recommend these games to everyone, a great activity for friends or family! (can find online)
Okay yes, it looks a bit grungy... but its a family tradition. haha We enjoyed a little dip in the hot springs at White Licks.
Another family tradition -- rafting the Payette. SO fun. We may have flipped the raft on the ginormous rapids, we had to make sure Swede wouldn't ever forget the trip... haha
We ended the trip with a refreshing canal float
Swede and I were amazed by how beautiful the mountains were. For some reason, living in Texas had made us forget just how breathtaking they are. Oh how we miss them! Hopefully we will be able to make the trip again next year, our fingers are crossed :)
