I didn't mention that the only time I could get tickets for all of us was at like 7:00 in the morning! :) So we were up bright and early! It was SOOO cold, but the temple was gorgeous. Most of the upholstery was green, with some occasional purple. All of the wood was a honey color. And guess what? Some of my fabric was in there! (I'm such a nerd...) The Celestial Room was incredible. I almost cried when we walked in. I am so blessed to be a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and to be able to enter the Lord's house.
By the time our tour ended the sun had come up and showed a crisp, clear, beautiful Idaho day!
My dearest Mitch had suggested we try a huckleberry shake at Joe's Filling Station so we had to try it! Yes, it was ZERO degrees outside and yes it was like 9 AM and yes we did get weird looks, but it was SO DELICIOUS!!! It is definitely a must-do for every Rexburg trip now!
The exploring plans for the drive home fell through so we decided to detour through a few cities! We stopped in Idaho Falls and then drove down through Preston and Logan! We made sure to pay our respects to Napoleon Dynamite and found Preston High School and then ate lunch at Big J's where Uncle Rico and Kip had discussed their "bizness plans". We had a good laff at how that little town had made such a huge boom from that movie. I guess Big J's must rub off on all men though... Aaron began to act like Uncle Rico. :)
