Sun Valley

I've really been wanting to blog about our Sun Valley trip, but we got back and jumped right into school, so it's been pretty busy. So now it's time to relive the memories of two weeks ago when life was simple and relaxing, and the only choices I ever had to make were what delicious meal on the menu to get and what activity sounded fun that day.

We started our 6 hour trip up to Sun Valley, Idaho with a stop at Maddox. If you've never heard of it you need to go! It is a restaurant in Brigham City that has the type of food you eat for a gourmet Sunday dinner. I loved it. And so does everyone else apparently because there was a line at the door to get in right when it opened at 11:00 on a weekday. And when we ate there on the return trip it was a complete zoo.

Here's me and Prest eating at Maddox :)
The whole drive up there I couldn't believe we were heading somewhere green and beautiful that is known for its skiing when all I could see out the window were fields, fields, fields. BUT it definitely is beautiful! And I have pictures to prove it!

  While we were there, we did lots of fun things like...

Went to some yummy restaurants. 

Out to breakfast
The whole crew at dinner downtown

Went bowling at the Sun Valley Lodge:

Old school way of keeping score

He won.. of course

We love bowling

Preston's dad thought it was perfectly normal to wear these around

Played tennis and swam:

Played with cute Sophie (brady & teresa's baby):

He'll be such a cute dad :)

Rented bicycles to ride around on.. Preston and I got stuck with the tandem:

Turned out pretty good for me though :)

 Went shopping downtown:

Just one of those things that you have to take a picture with

I guess Cass wasn't loving all the "elderly" clothing stores.

And got ice cream...

Home of the 1st ski lift

And played Games at night at the condo:

We also went ice skating, the boys golfed, and we hung out at the condo a lot. It was a fun get away before school started. Thank you to Linda and Scott who took us all!! 

We love Sun Valley!
