Over the summer we had some really dear friends visit from England. It was such a great blessing to see them after so many years and it was fun to share Boise and the hills with them. I even got to take them all rafting and share my favorite place with them. After going rafting I got to show them around my favorite neighborhood in Boise: Hyde Park and the Northend area. This little area in Boise is full of beautiful homes, coffee stores, bookstores and plenty of great places to eat. If you were to come and visit, it would be almost certain that we would spend some time in this pretty place. We would take a long hike in the foothills and then drink coffee. Rafting, hiking and coffee....it's the way to my heart.
