Mini road trip..

We drove Tiffany half-way home last night. We met her family in Malad, just over the border into Idaho (or as my children say, Hide-a-ho).  It made for a nice Sunday drive.  And for whatever reason my children were thrilled that we were going into a different state.  Jake in particular loves watching for the "now leaving..." and "Welcome to..." signs.

As we crossed the border back into Utah we had the following conversation:

Jake: Are Utah and Idaho in a dispute?
Me: No. Why do you ask?
Jake:  There seemed to be a gap between the states, like where you leave Idaho and enter into Utah. I thought maybe it was a kind of neutral zone...
Brian (while snorting): No, if there is a gap it's just where the signs were placed.
Me: Yeah, don't worry. We aren't going to war or anything with Idaho...
Brian: But if we did we would definitely win.
Me: Unless the weapon was the potato gun. Then they would totally kick our butts.
Jake: Well, if we do go to war with Idaho we have to make sure to get Tiffany, Steven and Kaia out before the fighting starts...
