Football, Gardens and the Market

What a beautiful Saturday we had! It was a relaxing, easy going day, that brought us to some unexpected places....

First, we went to cheer on Tanner's football team. Go Cowboys! Tanner had some awesome plays!




Then we headed over to the Idaho Botanical Gardens to check out their scarecrows and fall flowers and hike around a bit on the trails.



On our way home we took the scenic route and went through some of the old neighborhoods in downtown Boise. We happened by this old time market. So, we went inside to get a treat. It was the cutest place! The locals would come in and put their purchases on their tabs that the lady behind the register would pull out of a little index box. I didn't know store's even did that anymore!!! There were potatoes, onions and zucchini from someones garden sitting on the tables for anyone to take home and enjoy. So we brought some home and fryed them up for dinner. I can't wait to bring my mom and dad back to this place when they come to visit!

When we were on our way home from Idaho, I think we were almost to Idaho Falls but still awhile out, at this gas station we stopped at for our Diet Cokes...they had the tab box too! I couldn't believe my eyes. These two teenage boys got their microwave burritos and drinks and just said see ya and thanks!
