10 years

Yesterday Jay and I celebrated our 10 year anniversary. We were lucky this year because it didn't fall during tax season and no we didn't get married after tax season because of this reason. We were married after tax season so Jay's parents could attend the wedding.

So anyway, we dropped the kids off at my sister's house yesterday morning and headed north to McCall Idaho. It is such a pretty drive. The snow in the mountains is melting and so the river that we follow up to McCall was full of rapids.

We made it to McCall by lunch and as a pregnant woman I was so hungry. Plus we had to stop for a bathroom break along the way and I found a cute hotel that I want to visit again (besides their bathroom). We ate our lunch looking out across the frozen lake at Hotel McCall. This is the old hotel that I think has always been there, there is a really nice restaurant inside. It was just so pretty. Then we slowly made our way back to Boise.

We stopped at a gun/quilt shop on the way home. Yep - those are the type of shops they have out here. It was fun finding a few of my favorite things in one store - guns and quilts! It was pretty fun talking to the guy selling guns and looking at the quilts. But the quilts weren't nearly as bright as I like but were probably more appropriate for everyone else.

We made it back to Boise and stopped at a few more stores and then picked up the kids. It was fun while we were at Suzanne's house, we took Jay out to see the chicks and duck. They had tripled in size since I last saw them and the duck is so adorable. It's a black duck and it's all fluffy!

Then we headed home and had pizza with the kids. Friday night is always pizza night at our house and everyone looks forward to this night all week long. I must say it was one of the best days every. It was really nice spending the day with my best friend and no kids to distract us.
