Road Trip with the Parents!










So, I went down with my parents to see Travis in Roosevelt. It was quite the adventure! Let me preface this story with telling you that my dad is obsessed with trains, and my mom is the worst back seat driver I have ever seen (and she drives with both feet, so who's she to say?) I know she is just trying to be helpful and watch out for our safety, so it's ok.

Well, it's about a four hour drive, and the whole way my mom would announce every single road side she ever saw, and insisted that my dad drive the truck speed. Meanwhile my dad is driving, controlling the ipod, and honking and waving at all the trains he sees! It was hilarious!
We stopped at this place called "Dairy Keen" to get hamburger's and ride the train. I was laughing so hard I had a hard time taking the picture of my dad! He is so easy-going, I love it! I decided to be brave and ride the bucking train. The sign warns of danger, but it doesn't tell you that if you weigh 3X's the suggested weight it doesn't buck! Whoops! I hope I didn't break it!

I knew it! As soon as I saw the first picture I thought that was the Dairy Queen. It was/is the local high school hang out. I hope you got a shake and onion rings, they are the BEST there! You missed my house by about seven miles though. I hope you waved to my mountains for me. Your dad is hilarious by the way! That picture is too funny!

Well hello! So fun to see you have a blog! I'm so glad you left a comment.

You crack me up in the train. I don't think I would have even fit in it!

Wow... I am a bad church member. I had no idea there was a Vernal Temple? Sounds like you had a great time! Reading your posts make me laugh! Oh, and I went to LD's the other night and thought of you!

You are so much like your dad, I love it! You can come and visit me anytime, as long as you bring your skills to cut my hair and you don't mind the whole nursing awkwardness.

Reagan loves your short hair, just like her. Coen keeps yelling train now. Thanks for a good laugh. Can't wait to see you!

Hey, I'm glad to have found your blog. I loved the pictures of the Vernal temple. I thought all temples were white. I guess if I ever thought about it, no one told me that, I just thought it :).

Good old Roosevelt! How's he liking it out in the basin? There really isn't much to see/do out there. My mom is from Roosevelt so I have taken that trip many times and it is not fun. But Dairy Keen is a nice break. I also love the Vernal temple, my cute little grandma works there every Saturday.
