This weekend she came for a visit and it was GREAT! It was fun showing her our apartment and all the fancy new things Rexburg's added since last July.
She came with her friend Teri, and Teri's nieces Elsa & Hayley. Elsa is coming to school up here in January and this trip was designed to get her even MORE excited about it. And because everyone's first impression of Rexburg needs to be in the summer... otherwise they'll never come back.
They got here Thursday night and I took them to Twizleberry for frozen yogurt - and to temporarily blind them with the bright green and orange walls. Then we drove up the hill for a closer look at the temple.
|sooo pretty :)|
Then it was time for CORN-ON-A-STICK. I've been hyping it up to everyone all semester, so it was pretty permanent on the to-do list. We even waited around for a bit because it wasn't quite ready when we got there so eagerly at exactly 4pm. Needless to say - it did not disappoint.
|please ignore that i'm the whitest of them all - i live in idaho.|
|that's my lover... yep.|
|he's got tea parties d.o.w.n.|
So - what better way to spend some extra time in south-eastern Idaho than at BEAR WORLD!!
It was a lot of fun! John even had a good time!! And we got some huckleberry honey from the gift shop.
And after driving through the animal enclosures we found this sign where you can measure yourself against a bear...
|me and john - just need some baby bears! haha.|
|Teri, Hayley, Elsa and my momma.|
After our adventure at Bear World we headed into Idaho Falls to do a little shopping. [It was technically a "girl's trip" after all...] John was such a champ hanging out at the mall for so long, going in and out of stores, sitting outside dressing rooms... I did maybe bribe him with a prize and a snack :)
Later on Saturday night we went to see 17 Miracles at the dollar theater. The movie was good. But after the movie we had Cocoa Bean cupcakes! MmmMmMmMmmMMm. So delicious.
Overall, it was a great weekend. It was so much fun being with my momma and all the girls.
And now... SEVEN WEEK BREAK!!
