Family Time

Posted on Updated on

My son still lives in the Boise area, so we headed across Idaho to go visit him and the grandchildren. We didn’t stay at our usual park because they went KOA. We stayed in Garden City at the RV park between the ballpark and the fairgrounds. Nice park with a clean laundry room.

Our Jacob is growing up fast! We were laughing so hard in this photo. Love my family.

We took Melanie, Jacob and Char (kids mom) to dinner one night to give out presents and enjoy their company. Mel chose Red Robin for dinner. It was delicious!

David took us to this new mall, The Village, in Meridian, ID. It is an outdoor mall with lots of restaurants and outside seating with heaters. There is a fountain and an ice rink. The fountain has a music program every hour with lights. Fun to watch.

The mall also had a unique movie theater, Village Cinema.

So we had to go. Tickets were $7 for the matinee. We made reservations and got to pick the seat we wanted – online of course. The neat thing about this place was that they served you lunch and dinner at your seat. As you can see, the seats are big.

So we had lunch – me a french dip that was delicious and Dale had a pasta dish. Waiters at the movies! Who would have thought.

After a week in Boise, we headed to Reno to visit Dale’s family and grandkids. First stop – Lucy Harper.

Grandpa Dale got her a nice push truck she can take apart and put back together. She loves it. She has grown so much. She is crawling, smiling, and chewing on everything. Mindy and Scott had us to dinner for homemade pea soup. Delicious.

We also went shopping at our favorite store, Whole Foods.

While visiting Chloe and Noah, we got to go to their soccer lessons.

Great Grandma came for a visit so we got the family together for a nice lunch cooked by Ben and Scott and a birthday cake made by Mindy.

Reno has changed so much since my mom and dad came down here to vacation. But the sign has survived all the change.

On our last day in Reno, we had to go to one of our favorite burger joints. We found this when we were back in the south. Steak and Shake.

So we got our fix and due to a miscommunication with the waiter, I got my lunch for free. Dale got his milkshake!

We had a great time with family and as always miss the grandkids so much when we leave. Chloe told her teacher that she sees us every morning. So, we have to get her a photo of us because we don’t know what she is seeing!

Life is good and family is awesome. God and His promises are wonderful.
