The Best Motel in Burley...

Actually it should have read "The Bates Motel in Burley." We went up to Idaho for a little family vacation and decided to stay in Burley. It was a pretty place, but as for our hotel - I just wish I'd had my camera. It was literally the spitting image of the Bates Motel from Psycho, I kid you not, only dingier and dirtier and scarier. We were in room #2 and there was no phone, no garbage can, no pictures on the wall, little curtains to barley cover the window, a moldy tub and a broken thing barley holding the bathroom sink in place. We even had to use a real key to get into the stuck door and there was no dead bolt. It was one of those rooms right out of the movies where I just knew we were going to be murdered in our sleep. Even Dave was creeped out which doesn't happen much. So you might be wondering why I picked this lovely building to let my family stay overnight in. Well here is the website and a picture of what I thought the room would look like. http://www.burleysbestmotel.com/ Then when we went to check out everyone was still asleep. When someone finally came they just said, "next time just leave the key on the desk." Next time?! There won't be a next time. Oh well, now that we are back home safe and sound we can look back and laugh:)

I'm glad you didn't get murdered because we are soooo excited to see you guys soon! And we can't wait to hear the latest about Dave's job. I have been wondering what happened with that!

That's Hilarious. When I first opened your blog my heart sank. I thought you were saying you're moving to Burley. I know that it could happen and I'll be happy for you. I just will miss your cute family IF it happens.
