“Hello Boise !”

Those of you who know me well . . . know that our son Jay is a sportscaster. He’s the Sports Director at KTVB, Boise Idaho’s number one television station.  Recently Jason,  Chrislyn and the kiddos spent some vacation time in Boise. They arrived in just time for dinner, baths, to jammie up and to catch the evening news.

Holland was both surprised and excited when she saw her uncle on TV.

The following morning, they visited Jay and fellow journalist B.J. Rains at their live week day morning radio show, The Press Box where . . .

Hello Boise !


. . . Holland got to go “on the air” to say “Hello Boise!”

The kids quietly watched and listened to the two hour broadcast.

After the broadcast they visited the famous Boise State University Broncos “Smurf Turf”.

The COUGS are playing the BRONCOS pre – season this year.  ( All three adults above are Washington State University grads!)  People are already asking Jay what colors he will be wearing on game day.

The next day they hiked up to Table Rock . . .


. . .  to fly above “The City of Trees”!

This may sound strange . . . but . . .it’s comforting to watch my family, “be family” when I am not “in the picture”.  Jay was over the moon during his visit with his sister and her family.

( I know he misses his family.)

I embrace how Boise has become home to Jay. He loves his work . Through sports and sporting a better cause, he has a deep connection to his community.  It’s where he met the love of his life! By this time next year, he and Camille will be married and in their brand new home.

( . . . and my family and my heart will be all the bigger!)

Soar babies, soar!

It’s a beautiful view from the nest on 34!
