Day 21 - Downtown Boise


Monday, June 7th:

On the steps of the Idaho state Capitol

We enjoyed looking around inside the capitol; we all found the marble pillars breathtaking!

We brought lunch to the Julia Davis Park, ate it surrounded by hungry geese, and then went to the Rose Garden.

The roses - of so many color combinations - were absolutely beautiful!

We walked along the Boise River, taking a break to sit and talk in the shade while numbing our feet in the water.

We then drove to the old train debot, and had fun taking pictures on the railroad tracks.

We had to get a picture in our matching sisters aprons. We didn't cook together while we were here - the kitchen was small, and Ella and her mom fed us delicious meals they prepared, but we all enjoy cooking!

Just curious, was the old train depot, the UNION train depot? Many cities in the USA have old UNION train depots, including Montgomery, AL. I "Googled" Union train depots and found a list if anyone is interested: http://www.innvista.com/culture/travel/rail/statusa.htm
Apparently there is one in Boise, Idaho somewhere. Thanks for showing us some of Boise that we didn't get to see ! Looking forward to seeing you home tonight!
Love, Anna's Mom

Meghan: I made the aprons and sent them to everyone for Christmas gifts last year. Glad you liked them!
