I know you may be thinking why Idaho? We went to Twin Falls, Idaho to attend my cousin Bret’s wedding. We being me(Heidi), my husband Steve, my daughters Addison and Hannah and Hannah’s fiancé, Cole and of course many other family members. We decided since none of us had ever been to Twin Falls that we would go the night before so that we could explore before the wedding festivities began. We didn’t make any particular plans we just decided to go at the last minute and just see what adventures we could find. To our surprise this was the best thing we could have done. Below are a couple of our adventures we documented. From downtown Idaho to shopping and sightseeing, we were not disappointed.
We decided to just start driving and found an adorable street in downtown with some unique, wonderful shops. They were the kind of places that everyone should know about but they are just these great secrets. Slice pizza restaurant was calling our names as we walked by. It just looked delicious from the outside. It may or may not have been the smell that lured us in. It was an awesome choice. Everything was amazing from the pizza and mac and cheese to the caprese.
We stopped in a clothing store called The Brass Monkey because there were cool things in there for guys as well as girls. This quickly became our favorite because they were giving away free delicious cookies from the cookie store next door. Genious!!!!!! We will be back.
One of the stores we stopped in had a nice gentleman tell us we should go look at the Perrine Bridge. He told us it is 1 of only 3 bridges in the world that is legal to do base jumping from. Of course we had to go see this bridge and try to see some base jumping. Our view from the bridge was breathtaking.And then we saw it!!!! Someone jumped 486 feet to the bottom landing next to the Snake River that ran under the bridge. People just kept jumping!!!! My stomach dropped every time. I may just want to do this one day. Whatever!!!!!!!!
Then on to the wedding.
We quickly got changed and ready for a beautiful wedding and reception.
On Murtaugh Lake out in the middle of corn fields and rolling hills. Other than the bugs it was breath taking. So happy for Bret and Mekenna. The next few pictures are of family. I feel so blessed to have a wonderful family and events like this that we can all share.
The only bad part of the weekend was that we had to leave late Saturday night after the reception with a 4 hour drive ahead. We all had different responsibilities to attend to early the next morning starting at 7am and continuing throughout the day. Church meetings, teaching and classes to attend were all important to each of us. For one small moment of time we took a little breather and went on a quick road trip that was spontaneous and fun and gave us time together. We laughed and ate and shopped and spent time with family. Times and seasons as my sweet father always says to me.
