The location is FANTASTIC! When plans unexpectedly changed for my family on the 4th, we were left wondering …..so what do we do now? Enter my super fun neighbors (who I will admit I handpicked since I sold them their home!) with a last minute invite to float the Boise River. Yes please!!! So off we go for some fun in the sun….just 10 minutes from our homes too! SE Boise offers so many wonderful opportunities for outdoor enjoyment. The Boise River, Lucky Peak Reservoir, the Greenbelt and Foothills access for hiking, biking and running, the Shakespeare Festival, Lucky 13 and Bown Crossing just to name a few. All this only steps from your back door. It just doesn’t get better than that!!
The people are AWESOME! While floating down the river, Merrill and I decide that a BBQ sounds fun, so we contact some previous clients and friends who live in our hood and pull together a small last minute Fourth of July BBQ at the Trailside Place II common area. Or so we thought small……Turns out when you provide delicious food (my neighbors can cook!) drinks, fireworks and music, the SE Boise fun crowd comes out to play!! By the end of the evening, we had made at least 30 new friends, not just from Trailside Place II, but from the surrounding neighborhoods of Solaire and Trailside Place I!! We watched as our kids had a blast setting off fireworks, dancing to the music and stuffing themselves on hot dogs and cupcakes with blue frosting. At the end of the night old friends and new friends enjoyed watching a fantastic fireworks show from our perch overlooking the downtown area. This is just an example of the sense of community in SE Boise that is unlike anywhere else in the valley. We love where we live and we love those around us.
I can’t sign off without a special shout out to Amber and Dana Hawkins, Megan and Aaron Brown, Katie and Cale Marthens, Jessica and JC Porter and Jaci Natoniewski for helping to make our Fourth of July shindig a smashing success! Here’s to many more neighborhood gatherings and fun times in SE Boise!!!!
If living the SE Boise lifestyle is something that you appeals to you, we are here to assist. Many of our neighbors and friends were previous clients. In fact, one of my favorite things about being a realtor is the opportunity to help families find a community where they can create friendships and a life with many happy memories. Isn’t that what it’s all about anyway??
