Weekend in Boise 

Ever since Jen told us they might be moving to Boise, Mandi and I have been so excited to visit. We took a quick weekend trip a few weekends ago. We had the best time catching up with Jen and seeing her new home. 

We took a spin class. I forgot how much I love spin. It was a great workout and so much fun. 

Jen made her famous meatloaf. I have never tasted such delicious meatloaf in my life. It was amazing. My favorite part of the meal was Henry asking if he could have a banana instead of brussel sprouts. 

Our trip was the same weekend as the Meridian temple open house. It was beautiful to see and such a great opportunity. I loved the chance to share something with Jen that’s so important to me. 

We took a drive and saw the beautiful sunset and the city below. 

We went downtown for dinner to celebrate Jen’s birthday. We had a delicious dinner and a fun evening and didn’t take any pictures. 

We went on a hike before we left town. Jen has beautiful trails in her neighborhood. The top overlooks the city and it was beautiful. I was sucking wind the whole time and was a little discouraged at how difficult it was for me. I hung back and had time for a lot of reflection. I ended up getting sick a few days later so maybe that was part of it and/or hiking is one of the hardest exercises for me. I enjoy it, but it’s hard for me even when it’s not hard for others. 

The weekend was so much fun. Jen and her family were gracious hosts. It was fun to visit Boise-a place very similar to SLC. The drive wasn’t bad at all and gave Mandi and me a great chance to catch up. It was the perfect weekend getaway.
