So I blogged forever ago about my trip to Utah to see my family, but I neglected to blog about our trip to Idaho this summer. Since I just realized this I am going to remedy that right now. It was such a wonderful trip. Matt flew in the night before and we drove to Arco, ID where my Mother-in Law Joy grew up. It was her parents 60th Wedding Anniversary that we were celebrating and it was about time we went to Idaho because in our 10 years of marriage we have never before made the trip up there. The drive was a lot of empty space. I don't think I've ever seen so much empty space in a drive before, but it had it's beauties for sure. Matt taught us a song about Idaho and we had great fun singing crazy songs on the drive. When we got to Arco we went to a park where we had a picnic with general visiting with family, crafts, games, etc. It was fun to meet some of Matt's cousins that I had never met and to re-meet some that I have known but not seen in years.
After the picnic we checked into our hotel, that was very small, but still not the only one in Arco amazingly enough because it was the smallest of small towns I have ever been to with the purpose of visiting. We freshened up and headed over to the church to have our anniversary celebration. The funnest part of the evening were the props they had for pictures. We had great fun with that.
The next morning we went to Church in Arco and had lunch at the Tibbitts' home with the family. Matt showed me around the house he remembered visiting so often a kid. It was very nostalgic for him. He was especially excited to show me the red carpet in the basement.
