Snippets of life: Boise, ID

In our whirlwind tour of America, Colin and I have made our way south of the Mason Dixon line to Fair Hope, Alabama.  We'll be here to celebrate a wedding this weekend, making it one our longest stops on the trip.  We've had some great adventures with friends, family and former-strangers at every stop and continued to use Vines to capture snippets of life in each location.  As Colin says, "It's more of an obsession at this point," as we've created over 90 vines (and counting) since we began our trip twelve days ago.  At first I resisted Vining because I didn't want to overwhelm the public with our frequent posting, but I eventually realized it was a brilliant way to document our trip.  I predict Colin will find a way to make his living off these 6-second gems once he settles back in Boston.  Here are a few highlights from Boise.

Boise, Idaho
Boise's name comes from the French word for woods.  There is still a pocket of French-speaking people in Boise, and they live at my sister's house.  My sister teaches French at Boise's Sage School, a school with a French language emphasis.  This video features my sister and her kiddos.
Press the microphone in the upper left hand corner to hear the sound.




Boise State is notorious for its blue astroturf field, which is both weird & fascinating.  We may have casually walked onto the field, shot a video and then been politely escorted off the field.  The above is my favorite Vine from that experience because I successfully impersonated the voice of a 13-year-old boy.

More stories are on their way...
