While on the way to Seattle...

While on the way to Seattle, our first gas stop was in the middle of nowhere, Idaho.  Yet, it was quite the surprisingly, charming stop.  Even though the gas was a grand $4.56 a galloon, it was worth every penny due to the following:

First:  Alpacas.  Two of them. (Do you see the second one?)  They were both here to great you first thing as you walked into the store.  I actually didn't notice them until the way out.  Funny how something so obvious should slip my vision.

This is Zuni and Sam the Alpacas welcome sign:

You enter in, and they had the great Idaho Tumbleweed on display, and the pathetic Utah Tumbleweed in comparison.

More humor:

Now THIS was quite the treat.  Ryan and I approached ever so carefully, apprehension growing as we climbed the steps to peer over to see those little snakes:

They got us.  They got us good.

Hello, Seattle!

Can I tell you how much I love road trips?

I love road trips.

Road trips renew my soul.  They give me insight, hope, and direction.  It's just you and your thoughts while on the big open road.  I needed this trip.  Desperately.  I was on the verge of my breaking point.

Thank you Seattle, for showing me the light.

More to come...If you're lucky!!!

Summer Rooftop Concert Series

Erin, Callie (our darling little sister), and I went to this last Friday:

And then we acted like this:

and this:

 this too:

We had a ton of fun. It was so good to spend some quality time with each other. If you haven't been to a summer rooftop concert in Provo you should make the effort to go. There is a concert held the first Friday of every month during the summer. And to make it even better all the concerts are FREE! Here is the website to see what bands are playing this summer: Click Here. I am looking forward to seeing The Fictionist this year on September 7.

Erin and I noticed a couple of trends that are hitting this summer.  Since the attracts a trendy 'hip' (I feel old saying the word hip) crowd we thought we would share with you what we observed.

Here is our list:

High waisted skirts
Colored skinny jeans
Glasses (Most likely fake glasses)
Red lipstick
and of course fedoras!
