We were so happy that Uncle Steve and Aunt Joan finally made up to visit us! They are on their way to KY and wanted a northern drive. So they stopped in for two nights with us.
On Tuesday afternoon after they got here we BBQ'd a simple lunch.
Then we took them over to the barn to meet the stinky pigs and all the farm animals.
Tuesday evening is the farmer's market in Meridian. I didn't get the Saturday Kuna market, so I didn't want to miss another chance at farm fresh produce. They waited and watched Will get a balloon costume while I shopped.
After that we HAD to take them to our fave mexcian place, El Gallo Giro. YUM! Came home and I spread out my FM haul while they chatted.
Will was still in summer camp for the mornings so we dropped him off and headed over to
the greasy spoon cafe, Sunrise Cafe.
Had a little time left before going back to pick up Will so we stopped in the Harley dealership so J&S could trade in their van for a bike to drive to KY.
Then, since it was Wednesday it was milk pick up day. Uncle Steve was impressed by the big red barn.
And since we were in Emmett we went looking for more blueberries. But the blueberry place was closed. Couldn't resist going back for more cherries. AND we got a bucket of apricots. That night I made cherry and apricot cobbler with ice cream from the cream on the milk we picked up. It was kinda good. ;)
After dinner we took a drive out to Idaho's own grand canyon. Don't remember the name of it. Had to tell the the story of Mike climbing out past the wall and scaring us all to death.
We all held on tight to Will - it's a LONG way down.
This place has the most incredible views.
My camera took a dump so I grabbed aunt Joan's camera for a few shots.
And decided to put this obnoxious shot on there for her to find later. Isn't that fun?
It was a fantastic visit. Will loved playing with them.
They left Thursday morning and headed to Yellowstone.
I hope they come back someday.
