Another Wonderful Day

Today, Steve and I took the boys to Boise for the Festival of Trees - - it is a fundraiser one of the local hospitals has each year, and there are tons of Christmas trees that have been decorated by local businesses and organizations. Today was "family day", so there were extra things for kids to see and do. Camden's favorite part by far, was the Lionel train exhibit. He even got to operate one of the trains for a bit, and would have been completely content if we'd skipped the whole tree part and just played with trains. After we'd had our fill inside, we went out and wandered around the Capital City Market, which is open again for the holiday season. It is typically a farmer's market that runs May-October in Boise, and it is fabulous. Camden and I were happy to see our favorite vendor, the mini-donut guy, in full swing. Of course, we felt obligated to purchase a dozen, sprinkled with confectioner's sugar, along with a side of maple cream dip. I'm not sure what Camden likes more - - the donuts, or the little machine you can watch make the them. I tell you, there is nothing like eating hot donuts, right out of the oil, on a brisk winter day. Today was the first time that Griffin got in on the donut action, and had a couple himself. As you can see, he thought they were delicious.

When we got back home, we went to Rex and Kasey's for a visit, and through some bizarre alignment of the planets, Kasey and I ended up going out to eat ALL BY OURSELVES. Oh yes, we left the little guys with the big guys and took off for a local restaurant where we enjoyed a glass of wine, and some fabulous patty melts. Yum. We must remember to do that more often.

Both boys seem to be on the mend from their sniffles, just in time for me to have a bit of a nagging sore throat. I'm hoping that it doesn't amount to anything, since Steve will be away on business next week. Mind over matter!

Your day yesterday does sound great. Nice photos of everyone, too. The Festival of Trees must've been something to see.

Oh, and Heather? Raisin in the middle! Mwaaa-haa-haa-haa!

Sorry. Couldn't resist.
