Idaho, As Far As We Travel These Days



In Mid June we went to Idaho for Brian's best friend, Amanda's wedding. When we are with Brian's family, Challis is all I hear about, mostly it's remoteness and the crazy people. But since his parents moved there hasn't been much reason to go a town that isn't on your way to anywhere and boasts a population of 900 or so. I could tell Brian loved it. He was always smiling and telling stories on the 5 hour drive. We saw the house he grew up in, where his Karate studio used to be on Main St.(now a computer parts store), ate at the two restaurants in town(one of which is the bowling alley), and even tried to go fishing until the utter cold drove us away.
It was good to see where Brian came from, the places that hold most of his memories. He ran into plenty of people around town and at Lavender Days. Amanda's outdoor wedding was picturesque and I finally saw part of what makes my husband who he is-outdoorsy, sentimental, hardworking and much more.

I love that you have a blog too! Where are you guys living these days? We're still in Provo...maybe if you're here we should finally get together! I think our little ones would have fun.
