Home again

We came home on Tuesday night Oct 21 after 2 weeks in Utah and Idaho. We had a good time visiting with Lydia, Bernadette, Jordan and Shelby. Rick gave me a camcorder for my birthday so I practiced on Shelby. I will post the results when I edit them.
Rick and Jordan went hunting in the Tetons but Jordan returned home that night because he had the stomach flu and was sick for 2 days. But Rick, Tom and Parker Anderson (my cousins) were able to hunt for a couple of days, they werent sucessful.
Bernadette and I spent a few days going to about 15 craft and home dec stores that was having a Oct. contest. Bernadette did win a $25 gift certificate to one of the stores.
Idaho had pretty good weather until the last few days we were there and the wind blew the last night just like the days I remember when I went to school there.

July/August Vacation 2008

Lydia our oldest daughter bought her first home this year. We left July 23rd to help her pack up and move to her new 2 bedroom 1 1/2 bath condo in Murray/Midvale area of Salt Lake City. We packed for days (she had a lot of stuff) and expected to move in by July 28th but the powers to be thorted that. She was finally able to move in July 30th, but we had to be in Rexburg, ID for Education Week so we missed the actual move (Darn).

We spent a great week at BYU-I education week, this time we stayed in the dorms. It was fun trying to climb up the bunk beds at night for bed, but the next night I pulled the mattress down onto the floor for the remainder of the stay. We enjoyed our week and was sorry to see it end, but we will be back next year.
We spent another week visiting with Jordan, Bernadette and Shelby. The cutest granddaughter ever. She is learning to jump, she had more fun doing that and then clapping for herself.
Our friends Joanne and Al Martin moved to Sandpoint, ID about 5 years ago and we have been threatening to visit, so we headed up to the panhandle of Idaho. They live in town that is right on Pend Oreille Lake, it is 43 miles long. We spent 5 days and enjoyed every minute. We were sorry we had to leave. We then drove down Hwy 95 to McCall to visit with Ricks brother Mark and his family. They built a home in Donnelly this year and plan on staying until Oct. before heading back to Palm Springs. We stayed in there RV cabin at Cascade it was nice and relaxing.

We finally came home on the 12th of August after 3 weeks. It was good to come home.
