A Walk

We went for a walk on Saturday afternoon around downtown Provo to look at the houses. We found an amazing one that is brand new and has gorgeous landscaping in the front and side yard. It also had these huge sunflowers- the biggest I've ever seen!

Our quick trip to Boise was actually really fun. We don't mind road trips and we really like getting to visit new places. Boise surprisingly reminded us of parts of California- Anyway, it took us way longer to get there because we were towing a trailer but it still wasn't a horrible drive. We arrived on Friday night, but on the way down we stopped in Roy, UT to try the Burger Bar. We try to eat at places featured on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives if we get a chance. We like food way too much. The hamburgers were really good and so was my peanut butter shake.

On Saturday morning we wanted to stop in at a Great Harvest in Boise because one of David's mission friends, Wil, owns it. Unfortunately he was not there and we were a little disappointed...until Wil's wife walked in! She recognized David immediately. We ended up going over to their house and David got to visit with him while Amanda and I entertained their cute little boy by pretending the flashlight he was shining in our eyes was hurting us :) He really is a cute kid. I'm glad David got to visit a friend that he hasn't seen in so long and catch up.

We loaded up the truck with Amanda's stuff and on the way out of town stopped at the West Side Drive-In, another DDD restaurant. We ordered these buffalo fries which were basically potato wedges with buffalo sauce on them. They were really good! David got steak fingers which apparently is a really popular meal in Idaho + Wyoming. We also tried their potato ice cream which is just ice cream in the shape of a potato with cocoa powder on the outside to make it look like the skin of a potato. It was good and funny.

We finally made it camping after several failed attempts this summer! We went up Hobble Creek Canyon and ended up finding a gem of a spot next to a creek to camp at. We even had to make our own fire pit. The best part was that the scariest animals we encountered were grazing cows. Clementine was in heaven having free space to run in and she got filthy from all the dust and dirt. We had delicious tin foil dinners provided by Christiana and the boys kept our fire going by cutting down dead trees. We will definitely return to our secret spot!

utah state fair

i'm not gonna lie- the utah state fair was the worst fair i've ever been to. it was expensive, i had bugs in my food and i couldn't find any fried dessert besides funnel cakes. i was expecting more, i guess :) you can see below that david and keith paid to see the smallest woman in the world. i was kind of scared to see her but i watched their reactions when they saw her.

We're heading to Boise this weekend- what a treat! We've both never been there and are exited to possibly try some of the restaurants featured on Diners, Drive-ins and Dives. Anything neat we should try? We'll be there for about a day.
