Wine down Wednesday

I know... I skipped last week! I have been on vacation though. I told myself no blogging and limited internet. And I did just that.
I was in Boise, Idaho for the past 10 days visiting my parents. Have you ever been there? My guess is no. It's a great town! Being from Southern California I'm not sure if I would have EVER gone there if my parents hadn't moved there. And what a shame that would have been! It's a great town. I actually love Boise! My husband and I even got married there in 2009. I have been coming to Boise since 2004. It really has changed so much. They have lots of restaurants, wine bars, and clubs to go to if your ever there visiting.

The city has so much to offer. They have so much to do outdoors. Fish, hunt, white water raft, float the river, ski, shop, dine, and even DRINK WINE. Yes, folks... They have wineries. And 2 of them happen to be pretty darn good. Koenig and Indian Creek. This visit I only went to Indian Creek. Koenig wasn't open on the 4th of July and that was the only day we had time to go. Indian Creek was open so we went there and visited with Tammy. I had Jake on the grass and took some pictures of him there. They have a black lab and he was playing with Jake. Jakey poo just loves dogs! Thank you for having us Indian Creek!

Wines I recommend at Indian Creek are their Malbec and Star Garnet.

Here are a few pics I took there:
I wanted to blog a little about a soda fountain/candy store I went to. I've blogged in the past about a few restaurants, but this time I wanted to switch things up a bit.

It's called Goody's. Here's the info:

1502 N 13th Street
Boise, ID 83702

It's so cute inside! They have all kinds of candy ranging from chocolates to sour candy, and then they have a soda/ice cream area.
 I recommend going to Goody's. There were lots of young kids there sitting at the ice cream counter. It reminded me of what life was like in the 1950's. Simple. Where young kids drink ice cream sundaes and hang out. It was clean, and the staff were friendly.

I got white chocolate sea foam, white chocolate oreo's, and a toffee nut chocolate. I also just had to try there homemade ice cream. I had cream de coconut. AMAZING. SO SO SO YUMMY! It had toasted coconut in it. I had a few bites and passed it on. I was too scared to eat the whole thing with candy in my purse as well. ;)
Until next time Boise!
