Where do liars go?

I'm too A.D.D. for long car rides. I need tos tart packing myself an activities bag anytime I take one and I'm not driving. (Note to self: buy some coloring books, crayons, books on cd, etc)

Steve and I took our first real "road trip" together this past weekend. A friend of his got married in Idaho Falls on Saturday, so we hopped in the car and drove the 3.5 hours to get there. He drove, I controlled the iPod and talked his ear off about stupid stuff. We got to the wedding, jumped out of the car, and promptly realized that we didn't have jackets... and it was cold. So, we ate some meat off the pig they'd roasted, hugged the bride, shook hands with the groom, shivered our way through the wedding video, and turned around and got back in the car.

A few points of interest about Idaho: We waved to the families of Toffer and Cy as we drove through Pocatello. We decided never to live in Idaho, but we will someday return to explore the wonders that are to behold at the Blackfoot Potato Museum. A whole museum dedicated to my favorite food, what could be better?!

Anyway, we decided to stay the night in Smithfield with Steve's best friend Jared, and his wife Brittany. We made the trek back by way of Preston (quite the detour, let me tell you), but got to see Jared's new store there. It's very cool and I recommend checking it out if you're ever in Preston. It's a new/used/scratch & dent store right next to the DI. I was gifted with the best dish scrubbers EVER, we checked out Jared's piles of junk still needing to be sorted, and then we jumped back in the car for more driving fun. We arrived safely at the lovely Jorgensen trailer-home, and got comfy for the night. After kicking everyone's trash at Skip-bo I decided I was ready to crash. So, we turned in for the night with high hopes for small town church the next day.

Sunday dawned a lovely morning... except for the fact that the air mattress I was asleep on had deflated in the night and I was now lying on the hard cold floor with achey hips. Not to worry, however, because my lovely fiance soon came in to wake me up because it was time for breakfast. Since Brittany is pregnant she can't fast and was kind enough to make breakfast for the whole clan of us. There's always next Sunday to fast, right?

A short while later we attended the Smithfield first ward and I got to go to Primary with Brittany. It was a joyous experience all around. I love small town church! We heard some random testimonies in sacrament meeting, and then returned to the lovely Jorgie abode for some dinner.

All in all it was a lovely weekend and great to spend so much time with Steve. We're headed on many more adventures in the next few weeks, so I'm sure I'll have more stories to follow!
