A few weeks ago, Chris suggested that we drive up to Idaho to find our Christmas tree in the wild. We did this in Washington a few years ago, and it was so much fun! Unfortunately, I am too impatient to wait to find a time to go tree hunting: I want a tree right now. So, second best, this afternoon we went to the Cache Valley Mall parking lot, where a lovely little area of trees was set up.
We arrived at 11:00 AM, apparently not the most popular tree-shopping time, since we were the only people there. It was almost like being in our own Winter Wonderland!
Thomas was at school, so Gordon frolicked through the trees alone. He had so much fun trying to hide from me-- he's a fast little booger!
Where is Gordon?
Unlike the real forest, we found a perfect tree in about ten minutes. Also unlike the forest, there was a guy who helped us trim the bottom of the tree, then tied it to our car.
Okay, so it lacks the adventure of hunting down your own natural tree. But I could not have asked for a more beautiful tree!
