The sweet smell of fresh flakey crusts and fruit fillings lured hundreds of people to the fourth floor of the Capitol on Wednesday for Pie Day. Sponsored by the Idaho Coalition of Home Educators every year since 1992, Pie Day has become an institution at the Statehouse. Sen. President Pro Tem Brent Hill, center, and Rep. Jeff Thompson, right, wait for a slice of pie on Wednesday. Hill went for the banana cream pie. In honor of the occasion, home school students and teachers baked more than 150 pies.  Marge Ness, Pie Day chairwoman, said there were more than three dozen flavors of pie up for grabs. Slices of apple, cherry, pecan, banana cream, peach, Reese’s peanut butter cup, blueberry, coconut cream pie and more were served up to all comers/Clark Corbin, IdahoED News. More here.

Question: Which kind of pie is your favorite? (If a la mode, which ice cream do you want on top?)
