We prayed it wouldn't interfere with plans to visit my parents for Christmas. By the 23rd, the day were to have left early in the morning, we were just starting laundry and packing. But somehow we did it...we pulled off packing, cleaning up vital areas that were coated with sick germs, wrapped presents, and hit the road at 5pm--hoping to make it to Ritzville, or bust!
Moose & i even had a date: Italian food at the best little cafe in Idaho and borrowed the laptop and a movie and headed to City Beach for private viewing in the van. With a view of the lake and mountains to look at when the movie was dragging on, i have to say that was the best movie theatre i'd ever been too! :)
Mom and Dad took us on the coolest thing: a nighttime sleigh ride under the stars, in the middle of the North Idaho forest at a pleasure ranch nearby. After our two mile horse guided sleigh ride, we were treated like kings and queens to a bbq chicken and rib dinner!
