Our family made a spontaneous decision to drive out to Silverwood Theme Park way up in the Idaho Panhandle. We headed Thursday night, stayed in Moses Lake, then continued on Friday for the park. It was the Friday before Labor Day weekend and the place was unusually uncrowded. We hit the rides first the Boulder Beach, the water park. It was nice floating on the lazy river with a margarita. The weather could have been ten degrees warmer. Boulder Beach has great music. The bluegrass-ragtime music in the amusement park wore me out. Silverwood is a lot like Knott's Berry Farm but located in a beautiful mountain setting. We stayed overnight in Coeur d'Alene then headed home with a stop in Spokane to check out the falls.
