School starts tomorrow and as is tradition we have a last trip to wrap up Summer. The 2018 destination, Jackson Hole Wyoming. Mandy and family joined us Sunday afternoon and we were off to the Frontier. We had four wheelers, motorbikes and mass quantities of food. We got in around 6:00 and the boys unloaded the toys we took care of getting the kitchen ready. The dogs got to come on this trip and oh talk about excitement. They were running everywhere to look at this and to look at that. They kept coming to tell me all they had seen. The property we stayed in is called Middle Meadow. It’s right on the Snake River and has 6 acres. Here are some pics including a drone pic. Sunday night we played cards late and the kids watched movies and played video games.
Monday included the four wheelers and motorbikes. Found some trails and covered a lot of ground. At the end of the day we were covered by a lot of dirt. Wyoming is a beautiful place. We brought lunch with us and ate along the way. A huge dinner was planned for the grill Monday evening, but rain changed those plans. So we switched upped dinner night and went into town to Big Hole BBQ and wow is all I can say. This is a place worth visiting.
Tuesday we went hiking up the Snake River. Weather was beautiful and the skies were blue. After getting back spent the evening by the pool, then watched Interstellar. The home theater was really nice.
Wednesday we got up made a big breakfast and Mandy and I went for a run. The morning was pretty relaxing but after lunch did some horseback riding. I am really wanting to get some horses. It may be in our future. Still have some things we need to get done at the Homestead but I sure love being around horses. I really enjoyed the time at Snow King. We rode the Cowboy Coaster, Alpine Slide and played in the Amaze’n Maze. Was so crazy! Snow King is kind of like Park City. We are definitely coming back. Ended the day having our BBQ. The guys grilled steaks, ribs, vegetables, corn on the cob, and pineapple. Brought homemade rootbeer with us and it was just a great dinner. Had to go on a long walk after. Those ribs were awesome!
Thursday morning after a run us girls did a little shopping. It was more window shopping than anything. I have spent way way too much money this past year. Committing myself to get back to being frugal and saving. After lunch and a nap we headed back home. Grabbed KFC in Idaho Falls on the way and ate back at the Homestead.
Friday brought a nice run in the morning and a trip to Smiths in preparation for our last Friday Night Cinema of the Summer. Our friends were staying for it and leaving Saturday so it was fun to relax after going so hard the past few days. The kids selected Raiders of the Lost Ark and Avengers Infinity War for the double feature. Their friends started arriving at 6:00 and played in the Barn until the movie at 8:15. We ordered 25 Little Caesars pizzas plus crazy bread and wings for the intermission. It was a really fun night. Mandy got to light up the Barn. She was so excited! It’s kind of like lighting the Y at BYU. A very big deal lol.
Saturday morning I was up early. Made breakfast for our friends before they left. It is always hard to say goodbye.
