America So far

January 8, 2008 - Boise City, Idaho, United States

So far so good! California was ace, amazing beaches and countryside! we drove nearly the whole way from L.A to San Francisco with the beach right next to us which was beautiful!

San Francisco was great, we ended us staying in a really nice (and a bit to expensive!) hotel as all the cheap hotels we went into smelt like curry houses and there were no hostels in sight!!! (have'nt really got into the whole backpacking thing yet!!!) We went on one of the cable cars which was fun and went to fishermans wharf and the piers which is where we saw ZOLTAR!!!!! amazing!! (you oldies probs wont know what zoltar is but its from a Tom Hanks film called Big!!) We drove across the Golden gate bridge which is pretty impressive and had a stroll in the golden gate park.

Flew to Boise, Idaho for New Year with Andys Mum.  We went to a couple of bars and had new year in a little wine bar, in downtown boise! Got some pretty strange looks when we sang Auld Lang Syne! apparantly they dont do that over here!! oops!!

Since New Year we've done quite a lot: been snowboarding at 'bogus basin' which is ace! been to see a play called the Sensuous Senator at an amatuer dramatics theatre which was very random but turned out to be really funny! Seen some of Andys family. Eaten quite a lot of fast food!! Been to the mall. Got addicted to krispy kreme donuts! And just had  look a different places in Boise which is a really nice city even tho its FREEZING!!!!!

We were supposed to be snowboarding again today but its snowed so much over the last few days that were snowed in!!! looks like its a day of watching films and being lazy!!!!

Hope everyone is ok, thanks for all the messages!! will write again at some point!

Hi Andy/Elly, Josh now has 2 teeth at the bottom. They are so cute (but so sharp and the little blighter still likes the odd bit of breast!! Nightmare). Hope you are well and having fab time. Conserv is coming on a treat. Must dash, just heard him tell me that he's awake!! Round 2 now for nappies, feeds, laughs and crys. He walked 3 steps on his own last week (then fell down!)XXXX
