We had a most wonderful visit to Idaho to see Alec, Kelly, and Katie. Our trip up to Idaho was smooth, but we drove through lots of rain. It was fun to see tons of cows and calves as we drove through Utah and then tons of Sheep and lambs while driving through Idaho. The little ones were so cute running and frolicking through the field and pastures.
Saturday morning we went to a Farmer's Market. They had many, many fresh fruits and vegetables, breads, sweets, cheeses, soaps, pottery, jewelry, and you name it. We had fun walking around and buying a few things. I got some really nice smelling soaps and garlic infused evoo. John got scones, cookies, and other sweets that he wanted to munch on. That guy has got a big sweet tooth. He does share though.
Later that evening we watched Alice In Wonderland which I enjoyed quite a bit. Sunday John and I spoke to the youth about our mission. I was nervous at first, but it was really fun to talk to them. We concentrated our talk on the young people and the young missionaries that we worked with. I think they really enjoyed it a lot and it ended up being great.
We will be traveling home today. Our visit was tooooooo short. I wish my kids lived near me. I made a big mistake raising my kids. We taught them to be independent and then they took us up on it. Ha! Now they live all over the U.S. and I miss them so much. I wish it was like in the olden days when everyone lived near each other. I am so lucky and blessed that I have wonderful children. I love them so much and fortunately for me, they love me too.
