I don't get home to see my family in Idaho Falls as often as I would like but when I make the trip it is always filled with incredible home cooked food, gorgeous scenery, and lots of time with my wonderful family. Here are some photos of my recent trip back there.

Getting ingredients for dinner
These full bowls make me wish I could have a garden on top of my apartment building

A mannequin in my favorite Idaho Falls antique store... "natural and realistic"...

My mom's creamy pesto portobello pasta with roasted tomatoes and grilled vegetables. My very favorite of all the amazing vegetarian creations my mom comes up with.

I had to pull over on my way to visiting my brother at his home in Driggs, ID. This is the Teton mountain range. It was a perfect day and for a drive.

The streets of Idaho are so quiet and safe. This adorable girl was hanging outside all by herself with her cats. I had to snap a picture of her.
A week in Idaho was a great break from busy Capitol Hill Seattle. But I'm happy to be back to my wonderful, noisy, and chaotic home. Only a short time left before the cold weather starts showing up. I can't wait to start seeing more fall fashions popping up ready to be photographed.
