Trip to Boise

     This last week Derek had some seminars in Boise, so the kids and I jumped on board and tagged along for the trip!
     By far, the kids favorite activity was swimming at the hotel. Good thing daddy is a fish himself, because that's all they wanted to do!! They even passed up going to the zoo for MORE SWIMMING!
     A little stop at Cheesecake Factory was just what Derek & I wanted. It was soooooo good! I started out with an appetizer of avocado egg rolls followed by an entrée of chicken bellagio, and to top it off, some red velvet cheesecake for dessert. Pure heaven. Better than Thanksgiving! The kids and daddy devoured strawberry shortcakes without even a peep! And Dylan was so happily stuffed that he fell asleep while cuddling his blowup fireman's ax when we got back to the suburban.
     We enjoyed some shopping at some of our favorite stores -- REI, Cabela's, Life is Good, & TJ Max, and while Derek was in seminars, I caught up with my good friend Camille (which I'll tell more about in the next post).
     What a great trip we had!


  1. Looks like fun! It's always good to get away, stay in a motel, eat out, and go shopping!

  2. We loved seeing pictures of your trip! Cora thinks Dylan looks like Max. What a cutie!!! Oh we have got to get together. We miss you guys SO much!! We love you!
