Romney Rally

So on Febuary 16th Kyle and I took a spur of the moment trip to Boise, to go to a Mitt Romney rally. It was so much fun! On our way out of Eastern Idaho we stopped in Blackfoot and picked up a half gallon of A&W Rootbeer, to drink during our trip, this is the second time we've done this...I think it might have to be a new tradition.
We arrived in Boise at around 8:30-9 at night, we checked into our hotel room and walked to a nearby restaurant (sticking to our rule of not eating anywhere we can eat in the Rexburg/Idaho Falls area.) We had a yummy dinner and went to bed around 11. We woke up at 7:30 and enjoyed a yummy continental breakfast, then headed out to the outlet mall to do some shopping! We came back and got ready for the rally and checked out of the hotel. We were only about 30 minutes, even though were shooting for being there an hour early. We got a spot to the left of the stage, which wasn't terrible, but not the best either. He was about 40 minutes late due to interviews with the news stations, it was well worth the wait though! He was really inspiring and really got the crowd going! Afterwards Kyle and I even got to shake his hand!! It was so so much fun! I am really glad we went!



I took this right before Kyle and I shook his hand!

After the rally we went to a burger/vegetarian place called The Boise Fry Co. It was pretty cool they had about seven different potatoes to choose from and different cuts for each kind, and then they had two different kinds of hamburgers to choose from buffalo or regular. I loved the fries (I can't remember what kind I got, but they were tasty!) Wasn't as huge of a fan as Kyle was on the burger, which Kyle thought was amazing, but all in all it was pretty good!

We stopped at the outlets once more to go to the stores we didn't have a chance to before and then headed home.
It was a super fun trip and a much needed get-a-way!
