This weekend we just stuck pretty close to home and "took it easy". Friday night we went to our Ward Talent show and had a blast! It was so funny and random, and it was really great to get to talk to some members we hadn't met yet. We already feel connected to this ward and I will miss them for sure. Saturday we went exploring to the Great Falls National Park. It's about a 10 minute drive from our house, and a lot of people kept telling us we just HAD to see it. Mind you, we have our own falls in Idaho that are pretty cool, but we decided to go check it out. It was beautiful. Half of the fun is driving there, because you have to go through all of these estates to get to this hidden park. Houses that looked like they should be churches!Here's what it looked like following the path to get to the falls. Beautiful!
I liked this park a lot. It was a nice little trail to get there, and the falls were pretty good. It's no Niagra, but it's cool that this place is so close to home. We might go again tonight with some friends for Family Home Evening, if it's not raining.
Yes, I have a crummy new haircut (note to self: if the stylist name is Phu and doesn't speak english very well, maybe you should just wait until someone else can cut it). And no, Nate is not trying a new facial hair experiment. It was either shave, or be more late than we already were. Don't worry, he got a lot of guff for it.
After the temple, we went to dinner with the Kidd's at one of their fave mexican places, The Rio Grande. Fun atmosphere, really good food; it just so happens to also be George H W Bush's fave mexican restaurant. They use to have a pic of him there on the wall. They even make their own tortillas there. We had a good time, and always enjoy being in the company of the Kidd's.
Nate has officially decided he loves our ward because for Father's Day, each sister was supposed to make two pies and the "fathers" were going to get to pick one for themselves. They ended up just doing it free for all style, and I think Nate had a total of five large pieces. My pie was gone before I even got to the gym, so I was pretty proud of myself! -I am not a pie maker.
All in all, it was nice to have a fairly relaxing weekend, but we don't have that many left! We've already been here a month and can't believe it. There is still so very much on our list of things we want to do and see, and work just keeps getting in the way! We need more weekends!!
Happy Father's Day to all who may read this, and way to go to all the wives who read this who I'm sure made it an exceptional father's day for all.
