THE HIGHLIGHTS

I know you are all DYING for an update on our move.. (right?) Well, we are still in SLC and have just been chillin' as much as we can before the explosion of boxes, paper and me. Some of the highlights so far?

1- There is a BRAND NEW play land in Pocatello, ID at the SECOND Pocatello off ramp. EVEN BETTER, the play land is at Article Circle.. FINALLY, someplace other than McDonald's! It is a perfect dinner stop if you leave between 8 and 9 in the morning from Spokane to SLC. Just thought all of you Spokane Summer travelers should know!Order a Lime Ricky.. for sure.

2-I went to Tai Pan the morning after we got here. Did you know the place opens at 8:30 a.m.? YUP. And if you go at 8:30 a.m. you will have the store to YOURSELF. (So, you don't have to shower before you go, because no-one will see you.)
Now, before you go calling me a nutjob Amy, it was at my mother-in-laws request that we go because she had to hop a plane at 12:00. Of course, I was happy to oblige. I didn't take pictures because although I had FOUND my camera.. I had NOT found the charger yet.. Oh, so, I can tell you I didn't spent too much because technically, I don't even have a house right now, but I DID get my Mother-in-law to drop some SERIOUS $$$, so, I felt as though I spent vicariously through her, and, it was wonderful. (Don't you worry. I did make a FEW purchases!)

3-I found my charger for my camera

4-We took the kids to Kung Fu Panda. I have to admit, I enjoyed it. Is is no Disney/Pixar movie, but still entertaining and funny and the graphixs WERE amazing. If you have an issue with violence (there is LOTS-o-KUNG FU), don't go see it. Jaxon covered his eyes in 1/2 the movie because even though the kid would take someone down to the ground and pound on them for NO REASON he still doesn't like to see other people get whooped. Go figure.

5-We went to paradise bakery today and I had THE WONDERFUL Chicken and Artichoke Panini.. Awesome. If you have never had it, GET ONE.

6-I met a BLOGGER TODAY! Aberjaber met me at Sugar House park. Bless her heart, it is no where near her house, but she took pity on my tired self and drove here to see me! BETTER YET, she brought me CUPCAKES from Dough Boys and Flour Girls in American Fork. They were FAB (Thank you Aberjaber!- Her name must remain anonymous to protect the innocent) I took pictures of them and her, and I would LOVE to show them to you, but now that I found my camera and my charger, I can't find my Camera upload cords..

Ahhhhhhhhh, I love moving and total Chaos. Don't you?

I'm pretty sure that you NEVER sit still!! :) I love it! I'm sorry we didn't get to play today. I was really looking forward, but alas I had a sick little monkey. Don't you just LOVE Tai Pan? I could definitely do quite a lot of damage there...if given the chance. And paradise bakery...that's my favorite sandwich. My mouth is watering as I type...hmmmmm! Well, hopefully we'll get to play before you're off. Let me know if you'll have time on Saturday. Amy will be here...so maybe we could play.

Okay that pocatello news is so great. On my last trip down, I drove all over that place looking for a playland, because they were re-doing the mcdonalds.

You continue to help me, even though you are 2 states away. What a gal.

Jill said...

It actually does sound fun!! Enjoy!!
Isn't Tai Pan the best. I love that store and everytime I go back home to Utah I am there!!!!
Have a fun trip/vacation? Which are you calling it!!??

Shally said...

Keep some of those cupcakes for me if you are driving south...

I had fun too! Sorry I was a little... quiet. Contemplating death by mouse excrement was putting a bit of a damper on my mood. I was totally distracted! AND I had something else for you that I forgot to take with me (pregnancy brain strikes again). Can you email me your address so I can send it? : )

Melissa-Mc said...

Oh, yeah, CHAOS, bring it on. Enjoy your travels on the way to your new home.

Anne said...

Sounds like the move is going well so far! :)

Thank you for the link! ; )

Penny said...

Well, good luck with everything- you'll be missed! We all hope you find all the camera pieces soon so we can see all these pictures you keep telling us about! :)

Ilene said...

Well, if you ever make the trip back up to Spokane via car from Arizona (yeah right), remember that I have a personal playland in my backyard here in Boise...

I may not have a Lime Ricky but I do know how to make frozen hot chocolate.

Natalie said...

Sounds like you are getting ever closer...
HAve you EVER eaten at Dough Boys and Flour Girls??? THE BEST EVER!!! I experienced it for the first time a couple of weeks ago.

now for an update...(in other words back to me. haha) THe banks and negotiators approved our offer and we should be getting a date for closing today or tomorrow. They have hinted at the 30th of June. Looks like we might just have some chaos of our own soon... My next post might be "Please Buy our House. Please"

Growing up I would have given anything to stop at a playland - anywhere. My Dad always made the trip from Spokane to AZ non-stop. Loaded all of us in a car and drove. We were lucky we got to stop to go to the bathroom!

Bridget said...

I can't stand losing things and moving always means I am losing something. Good luck with the moving chaos. I am craving a panini now. I am very prone to the power of suggestion.

JBelle said...

I gotta get to Pocatello. :)

Tina said...

I'm sorry I missed meeting you! I was in Cedar City, but hopefully you will be back this way again? Or I will be back your way again...
Hope your move is smooth, and you and family are doing well!

Hey Lindz,
Sorry to have missed you at Sugar House Park. I don't get out much these days--these babies are zapping all my energy and I'm not feeling great. I hope you are getting settled and enjoying the heat!
