No, we did not go to Rexburg for the eclipse. Yes, I realize that was a poor choice, especially since we live in a state where there was no totality. Listen here, though, you try and get a 2-year-old and 4-year-old not to look directly into the sun!
Instead, we went a few weeks earlier. I love Idaho for its get lost in the beautiful middle of nowhere vibe. If you’re looking for a random adventure, Idaho is a great place to end up.
The highlights of our random Rexburg adventure included:
Yellowstone Bear World (yes, it’s as awesome as it sounds) – What is cooler than driving around a bunch of bears and other wild animals? Not much.
Redneck Water Slide (yes, it is as cool as it sounds) – Picture this. A huge slip n’ slide down a hill that ends up in a pool of murky water. Family fun for hours at this place.
Random Family Farm Time – Nothing like hanging out with a bunch of really awesome people you happen to be related to on a gorgeous farm.
Idaho = Huge Success.
