Cottage Cheese

So, on the 20th Sonic started a special. Buy one real ice cream shake, get one free. Well, we thought this was a good deal, so Thursday night we went to get one. We got there and asked which ones were included in the deal, and after about 5 minutes we finally ordered two shakes. Right before she told us our total she said, "Oh, I forgot. Our ice cream machine is broken." What?? She let us sit there and decided which ones we wanted and it was broken? Oh well.

Then, Friday night we thought that we would try it again. (The deal lasts until the 27th.) So, we called 1st to make sure it was working! They said it was and so we went and ordered. After we got them, we started to drive off (because we just went through the drive-through. I took a sip of mine and it had a lot of chunks in it! It felt like I was drinking cottage cheese (and I don't like the texture of cottage cheese!!!) Stephen tried his and his was the same way, so we pulled around to tell them. Apparently they already knew that this happens! They said they got new ice cream that doesn't work with their machine, so they are getting a lot of angry customers! Wouldn't it have been nice to know that before we ordered it and paid for it? haha We were able to return them and get our money back.

Sorry that was a long story, just thought I would share!
Enjoy your weekend!!!

Weekend Getaway!

This weekend was such a nice weekend! Stephen found out early in the week that he didn't have any tests or homework assignments this weekend, so we were able to make plans! Friday, after I got done with my weekend homework, we went up to Island Park and stayed at a cabin with Nate and Kate Wright, and Brian and Jaclyn Robbert. Saturday morning we drove to Bishop's cabin and had breakfast. It was so good! Then, we went to Big Springs for a little bit! It was gorgeous there! The water was so clear, and the fish were big!

Around 1:30 Stephen and I drove up to Yellowstone to enjoy the rest of the day!

We saw a ton of these deer and a ton of buffalo!
As soon as we entered the park we saw the bald eagle!

Picture of us in front of a waterfall randomly on the side of the road. There was a very deep valley below. (This was so pretty, but you can't really tell in a picture...)

This is a yellow-bellied marmot. It came up right next to us and just started eating what little grass was around. We were talking and moving and it didn't seem to bother it!

This was a thermal area. It was interesting because it was kind of chilly, but when we got out of the car we were surprised how warm it was! All of the white is like ashes or something...
Overall it was a very good weekend! The weather was wonderful (it didn't start raining until we were on our way home from Yellowstone)!
