The Brown Family Cabin has been around since 1947. Grandpa Brown built it with his own two hands.
It is in Island Park, Idaho right on Henry's Lake. It is beautiful and great place to bond with family.
My favorite things about the cabin include:
Howard Springs (which I like to call Howard Stern's)
Fresh, ice cold water straight from Mother Earth to your water bottle!
They don't sell this stuff anymore - totally vintage.
I don't have a picture of us jet skiing -probably because I was going too fast to catch me!
I LOVE SPEED! I got up to 50 MPH - the fastest that baby could pull. Tanner and I were out there doing donuts, catching waves and speeding across the lake. LOVE IT!!!
This attraction is in the park. It is a natural water slide created by the currents in the river. You jump in - feet up - and then get pulled down the river. This is Tanner and I at the end of the ride.

I love the drive through the park, it is so beautiful. I love the anticipation of waiting to see animals. This time we were so lucky and saw bison, elk, beavers and even a Black Bear!
Haha! He was looking at us like, "Don't mess with me!"
(Notice our police radar - proof, as mentioned, that we like speed.)

My LEAST favorite thing about the cabin:
Last year, 3 bats got in the house. Thanks to Tanner's daring feats and crazy badmitton skills they weren't with us very long. This year, the cousins that came right before us had 40 bats creep into the house!!! AHHH! The "batman" came and fixed the problem, but missed just one little thing: the dead guys. Tanner and I were moving the beds around, so we could have the most comfortable mattress, when we found 2 dead bats under the bed we were going to sleep in!!! GROSS! It smelled SO bad. I am so glad we found them and didn't end up sleeping on bat guts for a week. Yuck!
Tanner says, he likes the bats. Well, they do add some excitement, that is for sure!
