Dear Mom & Dad,

Thank you for buying a cabin on lake Pend Oreille and thank you for letting us come and stay with you for weeks on end.

Thank you for cooking dinners and grilling meat; for taking us for rides in the boat and for letting Sawyer steer; for hanging up our wet towels and inflating our inner-tubes; for having an endless supply of coozies for our Bud Lights; for filling up the swimming pool with water and for laundering our swim trunks; for building a floating dock and for putting in a water slide; for teaching indy how to tie a sailor’s knot and for always lighting the canon when we ask.

We love visiting you in Sandpoint because its like being at summer camp.

Except WAY better.
