Busy weekend

Hydrogeology Field Trip

On Thursday, I went to a field trip with my hydro geology class to "see" some aquifers, since they are about hundreds of feet underground. Anyway, it was fun, but a long day.

Friday I was able to spend some time with my beautiful wife; I had missed her all day Thursday, :(. We went out to Applebee's and picked out our basket from Bountiful Basket, which we have been doing for a while now. 
Such a hottie!
Saturday we helped pops to take a washer to Grandma Frasure. It took longer than expected, and with a house so old, everything you touch breaks, and you get electrical shocks...Yes, grandma checked to see if the power was off, by touching it! Oh grandma...ha.

We then came back and started making tamales, but not your typical meat tamales, but shrimp tamales. Yeah, we are classy! This is probably our fourth time making them, and man have we mastered the technique. Even Mom came and helped us; she prefers not to use the spoon...bless her heart! My wife is now a Mexicana! She cooks like she was from Chihuahua. The tamales were delicious. We then went to Reed's Dairy, which is the best ice cream in town, here in Idaho Falls. Since I'm lactose intolerant, this is one of the few things it's worth suffering the pain.

Waiting for goodness to cook!
