good x a billion

my trip north was lovely.
i got to spend some much needed time with my family.
after dropping g-unit off with her sister,
i commandeered the front seat and put my ipod on blast.
jamie, ash and i spit like karmin and sang it with cee lo.
ash and i belted some adele,
 daddy joined me in singing along with dawn
and jamie and i finished the session with a little bob.
daddy took us to texas roadhouse for dinner.
their rolls are like manna from above.
i would have never thought to get anything other than steak, 
but mama and i both got salads
 and were pleasantly surprised by their deliciousness.
we finished the night off by watching dual survival
and alternating between killing stupid zombie[s] 
and battling it out on scrabble.
the next morning,
 sass had me do her hair before we headed out.
{i don't think my obsession with braids will ever stop}.
on the drive to pick up flowers for grandpa's grave,
ash and i introduced jamie to ni-ni and miss ultimate sexy baby.
it was so good to see our idaho family
and visit grandpa's grave. 
after our traditional cemetery visit and freeze out
{idaho's winds are beyond bitter and the cut like little knives},
we headed to aunt beth's for lunch.
jamie, ash and i stole borrowed mama's camera 
for a hipster photo shoot and explored the farm.
note to self:  get photos from mom's camera and upload them.
after back-to-back games of tag and duck-duck-goose
with some of the cutest children ever, 
i went for a stroll by the canal, climbed a potato cellar,
checked out a pile of old tires, breathed fresh air,
walked along the edge of growing potatoes,
thought, dreamed and smiled.
as much i say i despise idaho
for it's lack of excitement and bitter cold,
it's truly a beautiful place where anyone can find peace.

Texas Roadhouse = Delish
