Feeding the Ducks and a Walk by the River

*Now I'm sure that this is not encouraged but I didn't see I sign that said it was not allowed.*

Down by the river downtown (on the west side - closest to the highway) there are a whole bunch of ducks and geese you can feed. We took some bread down and walked along the river front. Even if you aren't there to feed there is a paved walkaway all along the river front that is a beautiful, easy walk.

Sunnyside Park

Saturday afternoon we popped over to explore a new park. Well, new for us. This park is on Sunnyside Road behind EIRMC. Sunnyside Park has a playground, a couple shelters, bathrooms, and a giant parking lot. They also have a lot of play fields, they have tennis courts, soccer fields, and baseball diamonds. There is a lot of room to play there so I hope to go play there some more this summer.

We had a gift card to Applebees and so we went over last weekend to celebrate Mother's day. It totally wasn't my favorite. If you are looking for a place to get a drink it is probably a good place to go but since we don't drink I was basing it just on the food and I wasn't really impressed with. We got the 2 for $20 deal with an appetizer and two meals. We had enough left on our gift card to get a dessert even. So it was a good deal, we never get appitizers or desserts. The thing I did love was the dessert, they have mini desserts and it was just perfect to end the meal with. We had a chocolate mousse mini dessert and it was really good.

Although I wasn't super impressed with my food the service was good and the atmosphere was pretty upbeat and fun.

Little Caesar's vs. 5 Dollar Pizza

We have been to Little Caesars a lot and of course we go there for the $5 hot and ready pizza, but while we were in Rexburg last Saturday we decided that we should try $5 Pizza on Main Street. We have reasons we like both of them.

At Little Caesars we like the sauce a lot better and it's a little less greasy than the pizza we got at $5 Pizza. We also like that the pizza is ready right when you walk in.

At $5 Pizza the bread was amazing. They also let you pick any topping you want rather than just getting pepperoni and they make it right there. They also have more options that you can get for $5, you can get a large 1 topping or a smaller size with more toppings. They also have the option of getting wings.

Overall, which is better? Well, it depends on what you are looking for at the time. If you want pizza fast and don't mind cheese or pepperoni (or would get that anyway), then maybe Little Caesar's is for you. If you are craving other toppings, but still want the low price, then 5 Dollar pizza might be right for you.
