It's been a fun, albeit hot, morning already, checking out the different arches here at Arches National Park. We started at the back of the park, visiting Landscape Arch and Skyline Arch, and we're working our way forward to the front. Next on our list is Sand Dune Arch. It's hidden among the fins in the large rock outcropping here.

I was so excited to see that Wendy's is releasing a new Frosty flavor this year!
We love the regular Chocolate Wendy's Frosty, so much so that we've even taste tested Wendy's Frosty Chocolate Cereal! And then when Wendy's released the Strawberry Frosty, we did a Neopolitan Frosty taste test, stopping at two different Wendy's restaurants to get Vanilla and Chocolate as well!

This week we are in Utah! When I looked up what kinds of dishes Utah was famous for, I kept seeing something called funeral potatoes. Funeral potatoes, also known as cheesy potatoes, are a staple for social gatherings for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.

Yellowstone has been incredible! We've had an amazing time! But now it's time to go. There's more of the US to see!
You might remember when I pulled into this location I was concerned about the trees at the end of each spot. Well instead of going forward to leave, I decided to put it in reverse and back it out. That worked much better!

Pizza at Home - Idaho Potato Pizzas - Duchess Potato Pizza with Candied Bacon Pizza, Fried Potato Pizza
Today we are in the state of Idaho! For my pizza this week could there be any other ingredient than the Idaho potato?

It's time for another National Park and it happens to be the nation's very first National Park! Yellowstone! It's even considered to be the very first national park in the world, gaining protection all the way back in 1872! Let's go explore!
While walking through a gift shop here in Idaho, I saw something I just had to try! Idaho Spuds!

Welcome to Montana! We're in a new state and it's time to figure out a good pizza to represent Montana. In looking at all the different foods that Montana is popular for, one stood out. A meat pasty! Pasty in this case is pronounced PASS-tee.

Welcome to Glacier Montana! Huckleberries are very popular here! So popular that we started looking to see if there's any places where we can go pick our own!

A little out of order, but it's appropriate right now. Earlier this year we were in California going to Disneyland and visiting friends! One of those very good friends is Ian's old school friend Lola! Knowing that we'd be around near Ian (and Alli's) birthday, she suggested a surprise birthday for them!

Let's continue our time near Spokane Washington.
Just yesterday we were at Tire-Rama to get our leaky tire inspected. They thought it was a leaky tire bead, cleaned it up, and sent us on our way. The next morning though, hopping in the car, my dash monitor was showing that that same tire was low again. Not flat, but hanging out around 50 psi. Hmm. We drove back into town to the same shop for them to take another look.

Every once in a while the kids will disappear into their room with directions for us not to come in. Such was the case this time when they went into their room for over an hour. When they emerged, they were excited to share their homemade BINGO game! I'm excited to play! Let's see what you've done!

It's been a great time in Washington visiting with friends and seeing lots of unique sites! Let's wrap this trip up!

Earlier this week we were in downtown Seattle exploring lots of their tasty treats! One of the places we tried was the Seattle staple Piroshky Piroshky with their sweet and savory Russian hand pies.

Tasting Washington's own Beecher handmade cheeses, their Flagship, Extra Aged Flagship, and Smoked Flagship cheeses
Today we've got a very special treat! Our friend Todd, who lives in Seattle, came over to visit us, and knowing how much we like to do taste tests, brought one of his own!
Beecher's Handmade Cheeses opened in Pike Place Market in 2003 and was the only cheesemaker in Seattle! Since then, they've been crafting cheeses right in front of people in their glass windowed store and the cheeses they create have become award winning favorites!

I had to hurry up and write about Alli losing her 3rd tooth because she's already on to losing her 4th one!
Alli's 4th loose tooth has been wiggly for a few weeks now. Ever since she lost that one in California. As we were nearing the end of October it was about time for it to come out! Ooh, Alli, what if it came out on Halloween night?
The kids have had pretty good luck losing teeth on special days. Both Ian and Alli lost a tooth on August 22nd, National Tooth Fairy Day. Ian lost a tooth on Christmas Eve, which prompted a visit from both the Tooth Fairy and Santa Claus in the same night! Now Alli is losing one on Halloween! I wonder what surprises might be in store?
I'm jumping around a little bit in my blog timeline, but I've got to get this one posted so I can post another one!
In early October we were in California visiting friends and going to Disneyland! We're staying in a hotel room instead of driving the RV back out. While we were there, Alli's top two teeth are getting super loose!
