Getting it done....

 Post work moto missions sure do have a way of making the days stressors at work fade away with the first twist of the throttle!  

Last week, over in Idaho, enjoying being in the mountains with my bud Nate.

Following mom's lead.

Dash had a very healthy end to the week doing some yoga and eating his veggies!

Yea Tucker!!

 Tucker, dad extrodinaire, small business owner, and bud of mine for a long time bought a moto this summer.  Well...., he explained a well known path to me of addiction, admiration, lack of fishing, floating, golf, certainly mtn biking, etc...... all in the pursuit of riding a moto.  Tucker, bearing down on the big 50, proving you are never too old to pick up a new, badass sport!  Well done my man!  

 Tucker, on top of Big Munger, above the smoke line.  Tucker certainly went all in on his first moto, getting a KTM XC-F 450.  Same exact bike as mine.  Yep.  Let the big dog eat....

 Trenching up a big climb.  

Hard to believe Rock Creek is still moving.

Dash being.....

 the awesomest lil dude ever seems to come naturally to him.  Happy as could be in a hat and car seat ready for the next adventure.  

 Hiking with mom and Sophie the giraffe.  

 Long and lean this dude is.  

Sure dont love all the smoke that has blown into the valley of late the past couple of weeks, but it makes for some awesome sunsets.  Driggs, ID the other night.

Til next summer...

A trip up to Cd'A will be happening at least once a summer if not more.  Seeing friends and fam is too good not go.  Paddle boarding in DelCardo Bay back to the Tanner cabin just in time for the bbq.  
 Yea, snuck a sweet bike ride around Hayden Lake too with Sarah, my mom, Terri P, Steve M, and Adam S.  

 Sitting around a fire catching up with ol buds drinking adult beverages, does it get any better?  

Boat Capt. Noah showing Dash how to dock a boat 40 times older than him!

Lake Living

 Dash couldnt get enough of Matty.  Luckily she was very patient with him! 

 It was my sister Sarah's first time meeting Dash.  

 No  trip to Cd'A is complete without spending time on the lake, what CdA is famous for after all!  Luckily, there is never a problem finding buds whose families have old school cabins with all the boys to boot.  We headed out to Noah's folks place for an overnight of fun.  Boat only accessed cabins are the bomb!  

 Dash and Holden being awesome.  

 Lake Cd'A in all of its magic.  

 View from the top deck looking down on the gang having breakfast on the beach.  

Lila and Dash.

N. Idaho

 The Robinson road trippers headed north last weekend to Cd'A to see a bunch of my old time buds from growing up, their families, and mine too.  We had such a blast!  

Holden holding onto Dash like he means it!  

 Lila was so enamoured with Dash he literally never left her side!  

 The crew minus a few who couldnt make it unfortunately.  Me, Noah, Tony, Joel, Adam, Adam, and Brian, and the growing tribe of kids!  

Pretty cool to think that we were all in diapers together what seemed like not too long ago and now all of our kids are hanging.  

 Da boys.  And.....Levi.  

 Dash was all about staying at his grandparents.  He was pretty pumped on having more room to stretch out, dogs to hang out with, carpet, you know, the simple things in life!  

Grandpa GR and his favorite lil Dodger fan.

Hiking with my Mom...

 HI.  Dash here.  I just love going hiking on summer days with my mom.  

Thursday, August 20, 2015


It has already been SIX MONTHS with this little ball of goodness!!!
And it just keeps getting better every day. Rolling over (just to your left), smiling at EVERYONE, belly laughing, bike rides, sticking anything and everything into your mouth, drooling and tummy time (who would have thought) are now some of your favorite things.
Can't wait to see what the next 6 months have in store! xo

YOu are darn right...

 Our good bud Ben Jones is a mythical figure of sorts that comes into town for a week or two a handful of times a year when not guiding climbers to all the major peaks of the world.  

It was so awesome last week to get Ben out on a moto.  Nevermind that it was in jeans, he didnt have moto boots, his helmet was a sweet barrowed pink from Chels and his goggles were scratched.  None of that mattered.  The huge smile on his face the entire afternoon was outstanding!  Can't wait to take you out again Ben.  Thanks for watching the Dashman too.

All the boys were reunited last week for Hager's wedding!  So rad having my old time best buds around.  BC, Heather (looking very small!) Proops, and Ball game.  
Capt. Awkward fish release!

I am a big fan of days...

 in the middle of the week that look like this.  Float with buds in the afternoon complete with lots of fish boated.  

Classic moment.  Teddy's lil Ranger truck pulling out my dads stuck suburban and raft. 

And the day started with a morning dawn patrol out to Kelly, Antelope Flats, and back.  Ohh yea, a day of work was thrown in between all of this too.

The man.

 Dash trying on his sweet new lid for his first wedding last weekend.  

And hanging with two out of three of the amazing Holland girls.  Lydia and Maggie were all about Dash.  Probably the first baby sitting of sorts while we all ate dinner.

 Lazy days of summer in the park swinging with the Dashman.  

Final trip of the Adam's crews visit, and......Skylar pretty much sums it all up!

Top of the WOrld

 Had a blast taking the crew up the tram to see the sights.  Mandatory group shot looking north.  

Look closely at this rad shot and see if you can notice anything different with it?  Hint......., best view in the house is NOT in the tram but ON the tram.  
 Really was one of our favorite weekends ever in the stompin grounds of non stop fun and activities known as Jackson in the summer.  Already stoked for next summers installment.  

 Waffles and cold beers.  Yep, only the essentials.  

 Chels showing Dash Corbets and some of the lines on skiers right into it.  Dash, I cant wait to make the leap into Corbets with you my friend.
