To be totally honest I wasn't too thrilled about going to Idaho but I had NO idea how stunning this place truly was.
The view from our room balcony. Breathtaking.
We got to chill the first day at the resort and then they had a fancy dinner on the terrace overlooking the lake. The best part about these trips are the people. We look forward to not only seeing the same faces that are always here- but each event get's bigger which mean MORE people are rank advancing and moving up! It's so exciting to meet new people each time :) The view each night from the terrace was beautiful. Being that this trip was just me and the Mr. it was so peaceful. We enjoyed every moment.
The next day was out "team building" activity. They drove us over to another part of the resort to have lunch and give us a gift. Last time everyone got a new pair of Maui Jims so we were all pretty excited to see what they got us! We all got Michael Kors his/her watches! I've worn it pretty much daily since then :) Thank you Life Vantage!!!
After lunch we broke into different teams. Each team had one hour and only a limited amount of materials to build a boat that could hold at least one person and ACTUALLY float around the lake. We had a race at the end and our boat won second place! Then we played against each other in "minute to win it" games. I think we might have to host a minute to win it party because we had a BLAST!
Pretty romantical if you ask me...
The next day was chill. Most of the boys got up early to golf. Coeur d'Alene is known for their incredible floating golfing tee in the middle of the lake. They had to take a little shuttle when they got to this hole. Jon was in heaven. He is a golfer at heart.
The girls got to choose from a bunch of spa treatments. Massage, facials, nails and toes. I got my nails and toes did. They gave us ridiculous amounts of food vouchers...so I ate...and ate.
Then took a shuttle to lounge at one of their pools.
We ate again and got ready for a LONG day. The next day we woke up EARLY and drove two hours away to Montana to go white water rafting. Not gonna lie to you I am not really a fan. I had a feeling I wouldn't be either. I don't love that feeling of being out of control. Oddly enough...LOVE sky diving! (Strange, but I do) Would do it again in a heart beat. After numerous times of scuba diving- I STILL freak out every time, so this...looked scary to me. We were on the river pretty much the whole day. A lot of it was more like floating, and the rapids....weren't TOO bad. However, our boat got stuck trying to save another one on our first rapid so it wasn't the best start. And then....on the class four rapid, I fell out. I was the ONLY person to fall out. I got pretty bruised and banged up and was pretty shaky for the rest of it. I guess our tour guide was just out of training. Our boat practically flipped at that moment. Jonny was pulling in another guy that almost fell out (Vincent) while I flung out the other end. Luckily Melissa (the other girl in my boat) had a mommy hero moment where she grabbed me by the vest and pulled me back in. Could have been bad otherwise!
Melissa and Vincent and their kids were in our boat :) Thank goodness too since Melissa SAVED me when I fell out! haha!!!
And no toilets obviously so we all had to watch each other pee in the water...hahahahaha Caught you Bailey
Although I was scared out of my mind after falling out of the boat we were with AWESOME people that made the day worth it. MAYBE one day I will forget the falling out part and do it again - we'll see :)
The next morning we were signed up for paddle boarding. I wanted to sleep in and was super sore from the day before so I veto'd that idea. Instead we lounged around in our room watching movies, eating food, and went to the pool for a bit. JUST what I needed after a busy few days. (We ordered their huckleberry juice- what they are known for and had NO idea it contained alcohol til it came up to the room....oops hahaha!) Note to self- don't order the huckleberry juice :)
That night they drove us to this amazing venu for dinner and a show. The entertainment was to watch a "logging show" I was like...ummm what the heck is a logging show. It was actually way cooler than I expected. It was a bunch of guys and gals (yes girl loggers) who competed in front of us doing different activities. Like who could cut a log the fastest, running on that log in the water, throwing axes, and sawing things out of wood. Unexpected but appropriate for a dinner at a barn :)
All the while this menace was at home having fun without his mommy. He did so good and it was so fun seeing his reaction when we got home :) He did so good we are leaving to Puerto Rico this week without him too- I think after this though I'll be taking him along with- I already miss him and I haven't even left yet! Thank you Lifevantage for this incredible event :) We feel so blessed to be a part of such a wonderful business and incredible group of like minded individuals.
