As President of our Wood River Fire & Rescue Firefighters’ Association, I was called on to help organize a BBQ for over 400 motorcycle riders from the POW/MIA organizations around Idaho. They were riding into Hailey to show their support for Private Bowe Bergdhal who has been held captive by the Taliban since June. We were given about 3 days notice to pull this off, and Justin and Brian stepped up to the plate, pulling off a great event – even though the weather didn’t cooperate!
While it hasn’t stopped raining in a few weeks, summer has technically arrived in Idaho (well, there’s no snow on the ground). Here are a few shots of some of my favorite summer scenes in and around our home.
Last year we started a Tuohy Family tradition, an annual Welcome to Summer BBQ. As we are such poor entertainers the rest of the year, we saw this as an opportunity to invite all our friends over for a big shindig, and also to celebrate the beginning of summer (and more importantly the end of winter!). May and June are traditionally rainy out here – but rainy like a British August, not a British April – this year however, was a very different story. It hasn’t stopped raining in over 3 weeks – unheard of. But, we braved the wet and borrowed some tents, soldiering on. We were lucky actually as it only rained for a few minutes, but it was cold and windy – not so nice. Our house held up well as an alternative venue for our backyard BBQ. Our new wood floors were the star of the party. Here are a few shots, I completely forgot to take any before or really during as I was so busy, but these are a few from the tail end of the party, with just a few diehards left!
