Kyle, Allan and I left California after Church on Sunday along with Daphne, B, Hannah, Drew and Georgia. We drove as far as Elko. We had walkie talkies and it made the drive a little more fun. Whenever we go to Elko, we ALWAYS make it a point to have dinner at our favorite Basque restaurant, The Star. Unfortunately, they are closed on Sundays, so no Star for us ; (
I had a 7 mile run to do Monday morning so up and out early. Altitude was a little tough, but I managed to complete the run. One of the things I ran by was a Pony Express Cabin--I thought it was pretty cool, so when we went to McDonalds to pick up breakfast, I got a picture.
The drive was fairly uneventful. We met Heidi and Daniel in Twin Falls . Had lunch at Subway and then off to Chubbuck where we met Brent. Once we got Brent, we split up--there were last minute things to pick up. Allan and I headed to Costco in Pocatello--always have to go to Costco. I really don't know how we got everything in the car.
When we got to the "cabin" we were so happy. Well, I have to tell you there was a moment of FEAR. I had booked this place on line and paid up front. We used our "Garmina" to navigate and when "she" said "arriving at destination" there was an empty field. I was literally sick to my stomach--I knew I had been duped!!!! But, Allan told me it was just fine, we probably made a wrong turn. We went back and sort of retraced our steps and finally got to the right place and it was beautiful.
We had a wonderful time, the problem was not everyone was there, and I know the kids would have had such a great time being together. Oh well, hopefully next year everyone will come!!!
I still have to write about our trip to Yellowstone, the Rexburg Temple, and my chance to meet a great blogging friend.
SIDENOTE: Today I had a 16 mile long run and guess what: I DID IT!!! And yes, I am feeling the results.
