Soup Nazi


At the old stone chapel on main street in Snowflake is a monument. Here is a picture of Faith and Jaylee with my grandpa Merl. They are standing beside my grandpa's grandfather, Jesse N. Smith. Jesse N. Smith helped settle Snowflake and was also a 1st cousin to the prophet Joseph Smith.


Ronnie left last Wednesday to go hunting possibly until the 28th depending on when they get something. That's a total of 16 days! I am only on day 6 and things are going ok so far. This last weekend my family went up to the homestead so the kids and I were able to get out of town for the weekend, which helps the time go by faster. Saturday we spent half of the day in Snowflake. I love this town, it is so steeped with family history (on both my mother and fathers side). I used to spend my summers with my mom there when I was a kid. The second half of the day we spent in Show Low, we had a little lunch picnic (sonic) at the city park and let the kiddos run around. That night we all went to Pinetop and ate at the Pasta House. I had originally heard about this place from Allison and then later from several others. Ronnie and I had tried a couple of times to get in and never could. The owner of the restaurant is just like the Soup Nazi from the sitcom Seinfeld. I am a huge fan of the show and I have even seen Jerry perform his stand up live. Anyhow it was fun to eat there and it was delish too! Wouldn't recommend taking children though. They don't own a highchair so I had to hold Jaylee the entire time. Oh and don't take your cell phone in because she will throw you out, ban you from her restaurant and call the police. No joke. You have to try it! I had a great weekend!

I can't believe she actually throws people out and calls the police because of a Cell Phone!!! That is too funny. Anyway, glad you had fun and I hope the time goes by quick, I can't believe he will be gone 16 days! I can't even stand one night away from Jason. I love small little towns too, and that is a cute picture with the statue, neat he was a cousin to Joseph Smith!!!

Brittney- I have heard of High In The Pines or maybe its because we practically live up there and Ive probably seen it a hundred times. What is it? Didn't your parents open a Waldos up there too? Where is that at? Funny because I was actually thinking about you while we were in Snowflake. What area do your parents live? My grandparents were looking at homes there. Ronnie says we will be spending every weekend at "Little Red" from the time he gets home through Oct. Something to do with the elk mating season. Anyways it would be fun to get together while your up there:)

aleia- we are going up to snowflake ( me, libby, chelsea and her family, and my brother justin and sister steffie) the 2nd weekend in oct. yes they did open a waldos there, and i thought it was in the vacant house next to high in the pines, but for some reason i cant remember if they shut that one down and just added another menu to the high in the pines menu. well, i know my mom lives north of the bed and breakfast there in town. you cant miss it, its a huge house on an open hill and clay's brother is buidling a 20,000 sq ft home next door... its ridiculously huge. indoor pool and everything. we will have to meet up for sure if we are up there when you are!

Holy cow, the original SOUP NAZI! we'll have to go there... and leave our kid and cellphones at home, apparently. :) Call me if you need to pass time with me and Sydney, maybe Ash too. :) It'd be fun!

Hey Aleia,
I wish I was there so we could hang out while Ronnie is gone. That's cool about your grandpa. I never knew that!
