Frisbee Golf- Freeman Park

On Saturday we decided to go play Frisbee Golf at Freeman Park. Freeman Park is off Science Center Driver across from the ISU campus. The disc golf course has 18 holes, we only played a few of them. You can rent official disc golf frisbees at Play It Again Sports (behind the EITC campus) but we just took the frisbees that we had around our house. You may want to be familiar with the map of the course and bring something to keep score with but we had a great afternoon playing. Have fun!

Farr Candy Co. Sets Record - Free Ice Cream Social

Farr's Ice Cream is celebrating it's 100th year in business by trying to break the record for most ice cream scooped in an hour- and giving it away for free. They are having free ice cream downtown Idaho Falls on Constitution Way from 6-8 on Monday, June 20, 2011. We will be there enjoying some free ice cream.

Update: They beat the record! The old record was 3,000 scoops; Farr's goal was 5,000 and they far exceeded it. It was totally crazy there but I don't usually mind a crowd. The baby loved the ice cream and we enjoyed it and a nice walk around downtown.

Lincoln Park

Saturday we went over to Lincoln Park, which is on Lincoln Road between Woodruff and 25th (Hitt), to play some tennis. This park is small but it has two tennis courts, two baseball diamonds, a shelter, bathrooms, and swings. We were surprised to find that there was nobody there so we were able to have the whole tennis courts to oursleves. If you want a good place to play on the tennis courts or baseball fields this is a good place.

Outback Steakhouse

This one was unplanned but we had a gift certificate and I had the sudden feeling that nothing at home sounded good for dinner. I thought that it being at Saturday night we would have a long wait ahead of us but not at all. We got seated and served right away. Everything was so good. I had a steak with potatoes and salad, Josh had a bacon burger with french fries, and we shared some wings. Nothing tasted processed at all which made me so happy, the fries and potatoes tasted fresh and homemade. They have two ways of cooking your streak and I choose fire grilled and it was wonderful. Josh was impressed that his hamburger had so much bacon; there really was a lot on there. The cost there is a little higher than most places we go out to eat but I enjoyed it so much.
