    I'm super fortunate, living in Idaho, that I get to visit things like natural hot springs just about any time I would like. We are surrounded by mountains that house little natural springs that run along the river.  Don't wa...

    Okay, so what if it was a MECHANICAL bull, I hopped on it with dear friend, Mel on New Year's Eve RIGHT before the ball dropped. Since we had been drinking (just a little), it seemed like we were on there for about 20 minutes, but I ...
  • Space Needle, Seattle, WA, United States
    Jul 21, 2015

    For our senior trip in high school, we all went to Seattle, Washington. Of course, the big thing to see there is the Space Needle.  It was so cool to make it all the way to the top & look over all of Seattle. It was totally brea...

    Jul 21, 2015

    ​When I was approximately 13, I went on a Pathfinder (co-ed boyscouts) adventure to the Bruneau Sand Dunes here in Idaho where they also have a Planetarium/Observatory. It just so happened that, when we were there, the planet Saturn was ...

    When my husband & I were still dating, he invited me out to his friend's friend's house to go mudding. All I heard was hooting & hollering in the background, so how could you say no?  I threw on some jeans and (appro...

    When my husband and I started dating, he was the country boy & I was the city girl. We were complete opposites (I mean black and white). He took me to a country bar and we started watching people line & swing dance. It was so coo...

    Jul 21, 2015

    When I was very, very little, we used to live only minutes from Disneyland. I remember going there with my family & specifically remember the light parade that they used to put on nightly.  When I graduated high school, my mom s...

    On our road trip to & from Iowa, our family stopped in St Louis Missouri. A much too busy city for my taste, but it was a fun experience to go to the top of the St Louis Arch.  Let me rephrase the fun part, because it's not ...

    I wish I had a copy of this picture for myself, but it was back in 2004-2005, so I have no idea how to get my hands on it.  I attended our school basketball game when I noticed that one of my friends had brought a baby tiger & w...

     Back in 2008, my friend invited me on a little vacation with her to her family's time-share in Arizona. At first, I was really hesitant because Arizona sounded like a dry desert with cactus, sand, and constant sunshine. Did NOT...

    Jul 21, 2015

    When my brother & I were really little, we went to Iowa to visit our step-mother's family. We got the whole basement to ourselves and had a lot of time to just sit & talk. Well, being really little kids, we weren't too fo...

    Though I was only a little tike at the time, I was super fortunate to visit family in Iowa & witness Amish Country. I would appreciate it much more now that I'm older & want to go back with my own family. While in Amish Count...

    My mother & I were so tired of not having anything to do (or at least saying there wasn't anything to do), so one day we got super adventurous-feeing & looked into going rock climbing.  Instead of taking on the actual mo...

    Jul 20, 2015

    My husband & I were super fortunate that my employer couldn't find anyone to join him for a Lynyrd Skynyrd concert he'd bought tickets for. We ended up receiving those from him & were floored when we saw that they were FR...

    Around Christmas time every year, a local ski resort offers a Cowboy Dinner through a company called "Bogus Creek Outfitters".  You drive up the mountain to one of the resorts on the ski hill & get picked up by a horse...

    Jul 19, 2015

     Accomplished! I cannot believe that I went white water rafting. I enjoy the water & I can swim to stay afloat, but wouldn't consider myself a STRONG swimmer. The idea of floating on a raft in the middle of rock-infested wat...
