For Jeff's birthday, we decided to go on a Helicopter ride. Friday night we hitched up our car and drove the 4 hours to Meridian where we stayed the night. I just love staying in hotels, I think it is so fun! Saturday morning we got up, ate our hotel breakfast and headed off to explore the town. We went birthday shopping...again ha! When the time came, we drove to Caldwell.

The Helicopter we rode in!

Taking off, what a smooth ride!

Boise Stadium!

 After our Helicopter ride we decided to go to Rockies Diner. We heard about this little joint on Man vs. Food so we thought we should try it and it was very good! Jeff got the Earthquake burger (go big or go home) and I got the Teriyaki Bacon Chicken sandwich....YUM!

The Challenge he did on Man vs. Food

 Off Subject: Yesterday I successfully made my very first loaf of bread. Honey Oat Bread. The past two times I have attempted to make bread...I forgot the concept of letting the dough rise. It's fine.

Despicable Me 2, A Little Bit of Color and Derby

 We went to Despicable Me 2 and I was so excited to go. It was pretty good, but not as good as the first.

A couple of weekends ago we did a 5K color run! It was a lot of fun. They didn't time us, it was more for fun than anything and it was a lot of fun! We got drenched in color.
That night our friends Kathryn and Skyler invited us to the derby in town and that was so much fun. I can't remember the last time I went to a demolition derby!
Of course you need an elephant ear when you go to the derby!

Us in our matching Color Run shirts!

Happy Birthday!!

Jeff had his birthday on July 4th and we had so much fun that weekend! We went to breakfast that morning and then we went to the parade. After we decided to go to the movie White House Down that day because we could get in free. After that we went birthday shopping!! Later, we ate dinner at his parents' house and then  he opened presents!

Sorry, I was a bad wife and forgot to take a picture of him blowing out the candle :( It was a really fun day!
