Talk About A Great Deal!

We decided that, since we now have a patio big enough to hold more than just a grill, it was time to get some chairs for it. We got a pair of incredibly comfortable reclining chairs on clearance at JCPenny, but instead of paying the regular price of $140 each our grand total was $70 for both!

They have now taken up residence on our patio, along with my tomatoes and amaryllis; both of which are doing quite well despite my questionable gardening abilities.

Things have been pretty quiet. I've been trying to figure out my school situation and whether to take classes locally (and pay their ridiculously expensive out-of-state tuition) or continue taking classes through Oregon (online, not fun). Decisions, decisions...

Adventures in Boise

We had a very relaxing weekend. Saturday morning we rented a canoe and headed out to paddle around Lake Lowell. It was hot, I am sunburned. We took the dog and he did surprisingly well in the boat (i.e. we only almost capsized twice).

Sunday afternoon we decided to go for a drive through the foothills and ended the day at our new favorite pizza place, Lucky 13. The drive was gorgeous, although most of the road we decided on turned out to be dirt.

Our adventure started with ice cream, as all good adventures do.

Sunset on the canal surrounding our neighborhood.

Monday was pretty lazy; between the amateur fireworks and the two professional shows that could be seen from our neighborhood there was no need to brave the crowds!

Someone was not a fan of the 4th. Poor guy.

Now to get things in order for an overnight visit from a friend and a few days with my sister (yay!). Good motivation to hang the rest of our pictures...
