I had almost a week off work and spent it in Boise with my oldest and youngest daughters and my mother. We had a good time that included some shopping, thrifting, some haircuts, volleyball, work, lazing, a movie, great food and a trip to Zoo Boise and the rose garden at Julia Davis Park. The best thing about the zoo, in my opinion, was the Costa Rican butterfly exhibit. My girls were freaked out by the mass amount of them landing all over us, but I thought they were very interesting. It’s good to be home and back at it.
