October 30, 2008, Rexburg, ID to Richfield, UT

We arrived in Rexburg, Idaho at the home of our son Jeffery, wife Kristi and family a little past noon time on Wednesday, Oct 29, completing our 58 day journey across America. It was so good to be with our dear family Idaho family once again.

We found ourselves treated to Kristi's chicken an dumplins, fresh garden salad and hot apple pie just out of the oven at supper time.

We also found ourselves invited with the family to a Halloween live stage production at the University, starring the twins of the family, Adele in one play and then Jacob in another. What a treat to be there for these performances. Both did so well! They both have their father's talent for drama and wonderful stage presence!

I meant to take their pictures while they were in costume but I had left the camera battery in a charger back at the house, so no luck!

After a breakfast of waffles, bacon, OJ, and hot oatmeal we saw all members of the busy family off to work and school (including Kristi, who takes a World Religions class two days a week), and departed on our journey home to Arizona around 11 a.m.

The weather remains very mild for this time of year in Idaho and Utah with temperatures in the high 70s.

We stopped in Springville for an early supper and made contact with Terry's brother Lance at his place of employment, Neways, nearby and had a great visit before continuing on down the road. We stopped for the night in Richfield.

This is Mount Nebo, near Nephi, Utah on our way down the I-15.
