What's COOL about Rexburg, Idaho?

Seriously ...

We had a blast exploring Rexburg on Monday. And here's a couple of things we thought were super COOL ...

Our Hotel:

Springhill Suites by Marriott

The lobby is crazy:

The rooms are crazy COOL:


We also found an AWESOME pizza place (yeah, yeah, I know ... Flat Belly Diet ... well, we ate pizza).

They had a great salad bar, pasta bar, and pizza buffet. The pizzas were fresh and delicious, and they had a huge variety to choose from. My husband's favorite was the Alfredo pizza; mine was the Ranch pizza; my son loved the pasta bar. Uh. Yum.

Oh sure ... there are other cool things about Rexburg, like BYU-Idaho campus, the LDS Temple, and the three (seriously - - only three) Redbox locations.

But, what's NOT COOL about Rexburg? The Rexburg Walmart. YIKES!! Just. Don't. Go. There.

Tuesday, we decided (spur of the moment thing) to go to Yellowstone. Unprepared. No camera. No suncreen. Hmm. But we had a GREAT time. Saw tons of wildlife. Saw tons of crazy people jumping out of their cars in the middle of the road so they could get a closer picture of the noisy bear. Great idea. For so many reasons. Also saw people dipping their fingers into the hot water, right next to the sign that said, "Do not touch water. Dangerous. Boiling." 




  1. Sounds like a fun time making lots of wonderful memories :)

  2. Oh I'm jealous! I LOVE Yellowstone! Glad you're all having fun. =)

  3. Yeah, that hotel looked kind of cool. I'm glad that you're having a great trip!

    And a modest amount of pizza can be a great part of a sensible diet!

  4. Sounds like a pretty interesting little town. A road trip to Idaho may be in my future.

    Those are some seriously cool rooms. :)

  5. Thanks for the visit, Margo, and your kind encouragement.

  6. Awesome pictures! That lobby does look crazy cool. :) And sounds like you've been having such a wonderful summer. Good for you!

  7. What fun pictures. Cool hotel.
