One of the Croney family's favorite places is Twin Lakes, Idaho. We grew up going there every year with the Rupp family, and we now find ourselves there with our own kids every few years. The kids love it for the same reasons we did. Camping, swimming, and playing all day in the sand and sun with your best friends. There is nothing better.
Claire has never even been to Twin Lakes, but she knows all about boating. And she loves it. We are the only ones out of my brothers and sisters that don't own a boat, and you can bet our girls our girls take every chance they can to be on the lake. The day we were packing to go, Claire was so excited to go boating that she wore her life jacket all afternoon long while we packed. As soon as we got to the lake that evening, she had to put it right back on! "Go boating? Lake?" she asked all day long!
Of course, we had to take the opportunity to celebrate Uncle Chris' 40th birthday! My goodness! Forty? My siblings are getting old. . .
Since Chris has a little bit different look than the rest of us (dark skin, hair, and eyes), it's always been a family joke that we adopted him from Mexico after he swam across the Rio Grande river. In fact, his kids still believe he is adopted.
