labor day adventures

this labor day holiday, i woke up to dan's famed pancakes (a suitable closing ceremony for the summer of pancakes) and packed up a camera and not much else for a bit of a day trip, in town. i wore white pants on principle and we were off for an adventure. i told benji that we were going to pal around and see what we could see. our staying in town did not disappoint. the sights are always gorgeous when your eyes are open to them.



featured are a few nearby spots i've loved from the moment we moved here. i see them every day and pass them by without thinking twice. am glad i finally had a camera to capture them properly.

As I am reading your post today, the one thing that comes to mind is that I have hair envy. I always admire those who can pull off the style you do.

I agree the pictures of you and Benji are beautiful. Benji is such a cute little boy, and what fun and sweet Mom he has.

i stumbled across your blog today and started looking at your Idaho posts. i grew up in IF, and this post really tugged at my heartstrings - for you love the blue bell gas station too! i remember trick or treating at the blue bell when i was little, and also buying real life charlie brown christmas trees from a guy in the parking lot to decorate my dad's apartment. he passed away nearly five years ago, but your photo of the blue bell just filled my heart with warmth, love and memories. simple things - thank you!
