As Parker towers above me a goood foot, he came down to my level for the photo, he's going to be doing that a lot with the chaparritos in Mexico. (that's "short people" in espanish)

On another note, it was WEIRD to be in Rexburg. I haven't been there in 6 years. I saw my old house and all the sidewalks I used to walk in the freezing cold. I remember after my swimming class my hair always froze on my way to my next class. Kori (Fish) Crowther and I used to live across the parking lot from each other, Sharae Howard lived around the corner. I used to run into Chelsea (Lybbert) in the library and women's locker room. Julie (Wright) Crews used to work at some natural foods store, and I'd go see her there and buy Dr. Bronner's Magical Hemp Soap. I went to Taco Time with Jim and the boys one time. I think Parker ordered a ChocoTaco, I always see that item on the menu, but that's the only time I've ever seen anyone order one. I also used to walk at night and pick up huge blocks of snow and then chuck them at peoples' doors and run away. (note: all those women I mentioned are married, weird. I'm the lone surviver of many of my friends, but not my mission companions, ha ha Beddes and...Beddes... you're the only I could think of. ok. not funny.)
I was talking to Grandpa about Rexburg, and the lonely yet sweet memories, the town holds for me. He showed me the hotel that he and Grandma stayed in after Lez died. We also drove past Jim and Lez's house, and saw where Alison lived across the street and would come over to help when Lez first got sick. It is awesome to see how life goes on, tough times come and we heal over. The Lord sustains us and blesses us. God is good.
