A few Saturday's ago we celebrated a number of events. The first event being Jim's birthday. He's getting so much older and wiser! Unfortunately, our Mr. J was out-of-town on business. We Facetimed him in the morning, wished him many happy returns, and promised to party once he returned to us. March 8th is also our cousin, Jovie's eighth birthday, and she was able to get baptized on her special day. So, after our birthday chat with Jim, the kids and I got ready, drove to Jovie's church, and watched her take a very important step in faith. It was a beautiful event, and everyone present was so proud of Jovie.
The church where the baptism took place is right across the street from some large rolling hills, which atop rests the Governor's mansion (I think). The weather was superb, and we couldn't resist traversing across and rolling down the large green mounds. Pictures of our hill frolicking afternoon below:
We wore ourselves out that afternoon, and decided the perfect anecdote for tired legs and wind-blown hair, was to stop and get some sweet potato fries and milkshakes at West Side Drive-in. West Side is a favorite eatery I used to frequent on my way home from a long day at the art museum. I explained to Tralee that I used to stop there way back when she was in my belly, and so it will always be a favorite spot of mine in Boise. Also, it's fun and the food is always yummy!
We ended the day as we always do, reading and snuggling before bed. It was a lovely day.
