Livin' Large

Oh my. It's time to go home.

We've been traveling for pretty much forever it seems... It's been fun of course, but um, yikes... Let's just say we've been eating our fair share of food... Much of it falling into the category of "crap". And yes, the huckleberry stuffed French toast that the B&B lady made us this morning falls in the crap category, even if it might have been the tastiest damn stuff I've ever eaten.

Today we are back in Idaho at the Silverwood Theme Park. I suppose if there's one place on earth I could come to make me feel like less of a lard ass right now, it is this park. These people are huge. And the park here is doing it's part to help them (us!) all get bigger, what with the ice cream, funnel cakes, cotton candy, kettle corn, corn dogs, and french fries everywhere. I swear you cannot walk 10 feet in that park without encountering another opportunity to eat crap. (It's the perfect "All-American" way to spend the 4th of July, no?) Moana ate Dippin' Dots for the first time. She was a fan. I ate half a bag of kettle corn then just had to stop. I think tomorrow when I get home the first place I am going to go is the health food store... Ok, who am I kidding... The first place I'm going to go is the pool bc I'm dying to swim... But after that I'm going to the health food store. I miss feeling good.

You lost me at "huckleberry stuffed french toast"....!! Hey sometimes you gotta let the tastebuds run riot so your body can appreciate the return to feeling healthy...

Your still in Idaho???!!! Wowza. Yes, crappy food is good, but you can only take so much of it! Glad you are having fun....I am sure Mona lived it up at Silverwood. Safe travels home!

Too funny, the one time I went to silverwood, I noticed that too...which can make the water park scary?.

Wow... I never thought I'd hear/read that you'd eat all that crap and like it!! Ha. You're human after all. :-) Great motivation (not that you really needed it) to hit it hard for Kona. Welcome back!

We went to Silverwood the day after the race. Probably the healthiest crowd the park gets all year. Our "medium" bag of kettle corn lasted three days, and boy was it tasty. Congrats on a great race.
