And here we have Idaho...

I love how much space there is in Idaho the fields are beautiful!

Idaho state song

Here We Have Idaho
Written by McKinley Helm & Albert J. Tompkins
Composed by Sallie Hume-Douglas

You've heard of the wonders our land does possess,
It's beautiful valleys and hills,
The majestic forests where nature abounds,
We love every nook and rill.


And here we have Idaho
Winning her way to fame.
Silver and gold in the sunlight blaze,
and romance lies in her name.
Singing, we're singing of you,
Ah, proudly too,
All our lives thru, we'll go
Singing, singing of you,
Singing of Idaho.

There's truly one state in this great land of ours
Where ideals can be realized.
The pioneers made it so for you and me,
A legacy we'll always prize.

My grandparents used to sing us that song - so I was singing it in my head as I read it. It's really a nice little song, huh?

I bet you just loved the spaces after living in crazy packed Japan! That is how I felt after we had gotten back from NYC last summer - going to somewhere where there was something other than buildings was SO great!
