Temple Trip

Just got back from a trip to Rexburg, Idaho, where we went so that my stepdaughter Katie could attend the temple prior to leaving on an 18-month mission in Portland, Oregon.


The Rexburg temple of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

This is a gorgeous building, and I was honored to be there with her.

If you're interested in what temples are all about, I recommend this link.

You can't do a road trip without some good food along the way:

Mongolian BBQ in Idaho Falls

The only thing I would have changed was the drenching downpour with gale-force winds all day yesterday - the sun was shining warmly today, and that would have made the walking around BYU-Idaho campus so much more enjoyable. But we takes what we can gets.

That smile would have made a hurricane worthwhile!

I enjoyed my visit to the BYU-I Campus. I was able to see most of the buildings, enjoy their Tuesday devotional in an amazing convocation center that looks a lot inside like the LDS Conference Center,


see their geology museum,

Amethyst and Sulfur

visit with their library's delightful administrator, view a breathtaking exhibit of Bibles and biblical pages from the 14th century-onward, see a full-size replica of the Rosetta Stone,


(Saw - and touched - the original in the British Museum years ago)

and get a feel for the beauty and dignity of this wonderful educational institution.

Wonderful trip!

Mongolian Grill is the second messiest local restaurant I've attended, #1 being a crab shack. I ate their more than once, but they kept getting bits of other people's orders into mine, and undoubtedly vice versa.
