Preston, Idaho (where your wildest dreams come true)

This post is for all you Napoleon Dynamite fans (you know who you are).
So Bethany and I were driving back home from our wonderful trip to Jackson, Wyoming and we noticed on the road map that Preston, Idaho was along our way home. Well, kinda on our way. It was probably an hour out of the way, but hey, whats a flippin hour when you taking about Napoleons hometown. It was a detour well worth the drive.
Our best find was the real deal of Uncle Rico's van. Being so famous seems like it would be on display downtown with tourists flocking the attraction, but nope, it was just quietly sitting in someone's driveway. Here's some photos I took in all it's glory-

We decided to stop in a thrift store downtown, to see if they had any good original Nintendo games, and sure enough they had a bunch. I bought paperboy 2 for 2 bucks. Score. And even better, turns out that is the thrift store they filmed the "prom suit" scene in. sweet. pics of the thrift store-

And here is some other random pics from Preston. If your ever in the area its worth a visit!

The past week has been amazing. Quite possibly the best road trip/vacation/wedding/shooting trip/family time I've ever had. I have so many pictures stacking up its going to take me months to edit through all them and get them up on this blog. So I'm just going to show you one for now.

This is my long time best bud Grant and his beautiful wife Kristen. I had the privledge of being the best man at his wedding on May 20th in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. Congrats to both of you!

My whole family is here with us, so that has been super fun. My sister Lindsey even flew in from Japan!

We spent 4 whole days in Yellowstone National Park, so I'll try to post some photos from that when I get home. If you emailed me in the last week or so, hang tight and I'll reply when I get home in a few days!
