Tri-Cities Trip

Tri-Cities Trip

   Before we start, it has been brought to my attention that I should leave politics out of my stories. I agree completely with not including politics in my stories. Partly because I don’t want to offend anyone that might be willing to support the Foundation and cancer patients just to express my point of view.  But mainly because I am open minded enough to see there are valid points from both sides of the issues. I think it gets prompted from some of the headlines I post from the “You can’t make this stuff up department.” I try to point out the irony in some of the news headlines, and sometimes they are political. When I log into the internet, my computer automatically brings up MSN headlines. This week I decided I would post any headlines that represented a different political viewpoint from last week. But after reviewing over 150 headlines since last Sunday, there weren’t any. So you can’t say I didn’t try!

   This coming Tuesday is Ryan’s birthday, so Justin, Cassidy, and I decided to go over to the Tri-Cities to help him celebrate. Justin had to work on Friday, so he took a flight out of Idaho Falls. Cassidy and I left on Thursday afternoon to drive over. I really enjoyed the drive with Cassidy because it gave us time to talk about school and her new job. We talked about her plans for school and her career. I am so proud of the amazing young lady she is.

   We did a lot of fun things and we got to eat at some really nice places while we were there. By far the best meal we had was Saturday night at Ryan’s house. Ryan made us homemade pizza from scratch with his new pizza oven. It’s can cook a pizza in about 90 seconds, and he has it down to a science. He made a few different types for us and they were all delicious.

   The time went by way too fast and tomorrow we will be heading back to Idaho Falls. I know some people might say this was a long way to go for such a short visit. I look at it in a completely different way. To be able to spend even a small amount of time together is worth everything to me. The only bad part was not having Brittney and Jayci here with us. In a time where so many things in our world is chaotic and out of control, this small amount of time together helps me realize what is the most important to me. I am so proud of our family and grateful for all the love and support they give me every day. Thanks for reading.

Next week: Run for the Cure

P.S. Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m sure Ryan has some leftover pizza in the fridge with my name on it.
