Turns out, there’s not a lot of time blog when on a road trip. Who knew?
I suppose my posts for the next few weeks will have to be rather raw & uncut.
No editing, no filters. Just images from our trip & some commentary. I don’t have a lot of time, but I want to stay connected with you & let you in on our little world of travels & adventure.
While in Idaho, we went to Bear World.
It’s a wild-life drive through, just right off of West Yellowstone Park. Kinda funny, because at the end of the “drive-thru” (where we got to see black bears, moose, deer, elk), there was a small amusement park. Not sure what kiddie rides have to do with wild animals, but the kids liked it.
Got to see lots of bears (hence the “bear” in Bear World).
Loved the little guys, who were so rambunctious, & wrestled with each other the whole time.
There were some other wildlife there, too.
Hyrum petting the chickens. (That’s what we like to do, pet chickens, not eat them.)
Asher & Salem feeding a deer.
Aunt Alice & Salem.
We went out to eat at a Mexican restaraunt.
Our first pick was a Mongolian grill (where they stir fry all your veggies, noodles, &/or meat/tofu). But once we realized they didn’t offer tofu, we were outta there.
We went to Garcia’s instead. The kids got bean burritos & rice. I ordered a fish taco, without the fish, added black beans, held the aioli, with a side of pinapple salsa & whole pinto beans.
Yesterday, we drove to Provo. On our way there, we stopped at City Creek, an outdoor mall in Salt Lake City.
If you ever get the chance, you must visit City Creek. It is one of the most ecologically friendly/green malls in the U.S., with lots of natural terrain & water built into the design.
There’s a creek that runs through mall.
On the sky bridge, that connects the two halves of the mall.
We ate dinner at the food court. The kids shared all of this–spaghetti, fresh melon, steamed veggies, a breadstick, & potatoes, all from Sbarro.
I got a fresh, made-to-order salad from Salads-to-Go (isn’t that a great restaurant?).
Mixed greens, chopped romaine, spinach, shredded carrots, cucumbers, celery, black beans, cherry tomatoes, with a baslamic vinaigrette dressing. Only $6.
When we got to our home in Provo, the kids were thrilled to be out of the car. Turned on the sprinklers, & enjoyed getting wet for awhile.
Today Joseph has been packing up our remaining belongings to put in our storage unit.
I think I may have a fetish for mirrors & wicker storage baskets, don’t you think?
Sad to see my kitchen look so bare.
The kids & I went to a water park today. This afternoon we’ll hit up a few parks, maybe the library, just try to stay out of Joseph’s way while he packs. More about our plans & details about our house, next post.
