David’s mother has had some health challenges recently so we decided to make a trip to Idaho to spend some time with her. We took her out for coffee, lunch, and a couple of dinners. We also went for long drives through the beautiful scenery in the Boise area.
It was good for David to get to spend time with his mom:
During our drives we saw some gorgeous scenery, including the Boise River:
One night we had dinner with David’s mom, sister, two of his sister’s adult children and five grandchildren. It was wonderful to get to spend some time together. Later that night our nephew, Shawn, met us at one of his favorite places and the three of us had a couple of hours to just chat.
On our last day we picked up David’s mom, went to lunch, drove for a couple of hours and stopped for ice cream before taking her back to the assisted living center where she lives.

It wasn’t a long trip but it was a good one. There are never any guarantees so I believe it’s important to spend time with the ones we love while we can.
