Mountain River Ranch

December 20, 2012
This year for Christmas our group of friends decided no not buy gifts for each other, but rather go on an 'adults only' couples date. We wanted to do something fun and festive. 

So on December 20, 12 we all headed up to Mountain River Ranch. It's a ranch up in the mountains here in Idaho. It's an actual working ranch, but they also specialize in dinner and a performance. During the Christmas season they do slay rides up to the lodge, it's slightly magical. 

There wasn't enough snow to do slay rides up to the lodge, but we did get to be pulled in a wagon by horses. It was a FREEZING night, but we had a ton of fun! Once in the lodge we had a little pre dinner entertainment preformed by family members of the owners of the ranch. We chatted and then ate dinner, it was great food! The cheesecake for dessert was DEVINE! 

Then it was time for the performance. The group consists of four men who all are Idaho falls community members. They sang, acted, and really entertained us! They were great!!! 
I think it's safe to say that we all enjoyed ourselves during the evening, especially since we didn't have to fight our kids during the evening.
Mike and I would like to go back with Trenton and our families...maybe next year!
