It was funny listening to my dad try and describe what Idaho is like during the summer. He stumbled over so many words but then finally said, "You can just feel it. You know it. It's God's Country." I couldn't agree more. I love Idaho Summer more than anything. And the great news is.... I think Jason felt it. Not a lot. He's not begging to return.... but I think he's starting to get it. So here we go...... to Idaho.
|I don't I can't seriously capture it. But nothing beats an Idaho sunset. This was|
taken on our drive up just north of Malad.
After my 4th of July run, we headed to Rexburg for the end of the parade.... but this next picture is most important for my family. Two of the best things are together.... McDonalds and the Rexburg Temple. Yes Rexburg now has two McDonalds. Kinda a big deal.
That night rather than fight with the thousands of people that went to watch "the best firework show this side of the Mississippi" we stayed at the farm and watched $600 worth of illegal fireworks they got from Wyoming. I love fireworks it's true. But the fact is no firework show can compete with Disneyland so rather than fight through the traffic of Idaho Falls this homemade show was way better.
We headed over to Jackson Hole with a lot of the Leon Parson family. Jason and I drove separate because I was dying to see if I could find this sandwich place. See... one time like 5 years ago....
Then we met up with all of the families in the park for the iconic Jackson Hole Antler picture.... Oh and of course one of me and Franci in the flowers.
Then we stopped at Yippee-I-O Candy Shop...... yes, that was it's name. It was darling.
Of course I didn't get a picture with the whole group but it was so fun!
After dinner at a hole in the wall pizza joint, we headed back to Rexburg.......... Man oh man the Tetons rock my world every time.
That night we met Jason's little brother Jared at Sammy's in Rexburg for shakes. The next morning we jointed him at the singles ward on BYUI campus...... first off let's just say I couldn't resist taking a picture of how they fixed the Hymn book...... #onlyinIdaho
