These are all pictures of our time here in Spokane and I realize they probably aren't that interesting to anyone but us, and maybe Grandma Fox. I do at times wonder if my whole blog is a really great way to preserve our family history, or if it is just a self-centered self-indulgence. Should my time be spent more wisely? I can say for certain that posting on here is therapeutic and relaxing to me. Of course, so is going to a spa, but that could be taken to extremes. Either way this is my blog, it's free to create and it makes me feel happy. These times in Spokane with dear family are happy times we definitely want to remember. So, here goes!
(Abe comment: This is now one of my ALL-TIME Favorite PICS!!!)
Grandma's big tub and huge rubber ducks are looked forward to every year. Forgive me, children.

Jesse and Amy have more varied tastes and like searching out the best "hole-in-the-wall" eating establishments. I think they are much more interesting people to be friends with than we are.
And we were the beneficiaries last night because we had a very enjoyable and tasty time at this little Greek restaurant in Coeur D'Alene, Idaho.
The Fox Family Reunion does not officially begin until this coming Monday and then goes for five days. We came up early because we'll be leaving after the third day. Even still, there will be plenty of joyous cousin time!
In the shade it was quite pleasant.
This was a great lake we had never gone to before. Not too big, not too crowded and a great pier that went all the way around a not too deep swimming area.
George and best cousin Asher. They are just a few months apart in age.
Building sand castles.
The finished products.
John is almost ten and Cannon just turned seven, but they are buds. Cannon adores John and respects his soccer skills.
John kept Cannon on the run during a little match in the heat.
During our lunch break Abe entertained us all by recounting the story of the first time he went water skiing on this very lake as a young man.
Peter enjoyed himself some oreos.
I enjoy myself some Peter.
