The first event we went to on Saturday was all about sheep. We rode a shuttle up to the foothills of Boise. We walked around the trails. FFA members helped the Lambs do crafts. We watched the dogs herd the sheep. We ate Lamb sausage.
Next we went on a candy hunt. The first summer reading library prize was for a candy hunt at an old fashioned candy store. The Lambs had to find 5 kinds of candy and they could choose any flavor, but they needed that specific kind. The store is packed full of every kind of candy that you can imagine. Even with all 5 of us looking, it took a little while to find one of them. Each Lamb got their own little bag with those 5 kinds of candy to take home.
We ate lunch at Boise Fry Company. Our family has only been there a couple of times and it is a huge treat. We like their burgers, fries, sauce, brussel sprouts, and "homemade" soda made with honey (root beer or orange basil). It is difficult to choose what to order, but when the whole family goes you can order a couple of different fries and share.
After lunch we went to the grand opening of the Northwest Science Museum. We are so excited that a creation museum is opening in Boise! We arrived towards the end of their festivities so we didn't do everything offered.
|I was hoping for a picture to remember that we came to the grand opening. The Lambs had other ideas. They were not happy to stop and pose for a picture inside the museum when they wanted to do all the fun activities outside.|
|Each Lamb got to keep one "fossil" or rock that they found in the sand. Digging was fun for them!|
