Our Trip to Idaho

Sunday my cousin Mandee was blessing her baby in Idaho. I hadn't seen her forever, I even had to miss her baby shower so I definitely wanted to go. Devan and I found a sub for primary and we headed up to his sister's house in Logan to stay the night so we wouldn't have to drive quite so far in the morning. The baby blessing was supposed to start at 11:30 so we left around 9 and drove up to Idaho Falls. We got there at about 11:20, but the exit number we had been told to take wasn't there so we tried to call someone but they all had their phones off already. We spent the next hour and a half driving around trying to find the place before we finally got a hold of someone. Turns out we were supposed to go to Twin Falls, not Idaho Falls! We were about 160 miles away from our destination but we didn't want to do all that travelling for no reason so we hurried on our way to Twin Falls. On the way, Devan got pulled over and ticketed for going 25 over. His first ticket ever! He was pretty sad about that. We finally got to Twin Falls just as everyone was leaving the place they were having the luncheon. We went with everyone to see the falls and then we went to my cousin's house to eat real quick before we had to leave again. It was so good to see her and her family. Their baby is so cute! Its too bad we weren't able to stay longer so we could visit more. After eating, we were back on the road again and got home at about 9:30 pm. We drove for a little over 10 hours that day for a trip that was supposed to be 6 hours. Its a good thing Devan doesn't get mad otherwise I would have gotten upset as well and we both would have been miserable. But Devan stayed calm so I could be calm as well. Our trip was actually quite enjoyable considering the circumstances. :)

This is totally unrelated but check out this "movie poster" that Marc (from work) made.

It cracks me up. Devan looks like a very nice phantom.

great poster! Wow, you were thirty minutes away from me! Until you turned around and went to Twin. Now, did you go see Shoshone Falls as well as Twin Falls? Shoshone is better, so I imagine you went there. Although, I have no idea what it looks like in the winter.

I think those woops trips are kinda fun.
