Monday evening (July 25), Mom, Tim, and I went to Gus and Cindy’s house. They were kind enough to include us in their chocolate party. Every time Gus travels to Germany he comes home with a ton of chocolate and they gather around as a family to taste it all.
Tuesday my mom and I went with Reb and Julia to a Quilt exhibit, which was amazing, and then we headed back for Rexburg. The rest of the week we spent a lot of time with my parents, Valerie, and the Anderson’s. I have to say my sister Yvonne as some pretty cute kids! Thursday we were able to attend the temple with my parents. Saturday Tim and I attended the bodies exhibit with Matt and Yvonne. It was so cool! Anyone who lives in southeast Idaho, who hasn’t gone yet, should make a point to go. (It’s open until September 5th.) Sunday Tim attended our old ward one last time, had lunch with the family and Warren and Rachel, got to visit our friend Jason Stark (welcome back!), and have dinner with Matt and Monica Foster. It was such a great day.
Tim and I left Rexburg at 3:00 am this morning, drove to Boise, and caught our flight to Anchorage. Thanks to everyone who made our summer so great and to all those who opened their homes to us. We had such a great time and we are now ready to return to our own home. I’ll be so excited to see my own bed, my own kitchen, and my own 4-wheeler. (I’m sure our 4-wheelers have felt neglected. We’ll probably needed to take them for a ride right away.)
