Rexburg Temple

While visiting Rexburg, one of the things we especially wanted to see was the Temple.

Our son Mike is the head engineer there, and only lives 5 to 7 miles away from it. He took us to the site, and if we hadn't had the children with us, we could have gone inside.

Mike explained the fundamentals of what he's doing on his job, and showed us by the outside what is inside.
The Temple isn't finished inside yet. Part of the landscaping has been done, and Mike showed us where they plan to do more landscaping this week.

The Temple sits high on a hill, and you can see it from just about anywhere in the valley. It shows very nicely from the freeway.

We drove around the campus of BYU-Idaho. I've never been there before. The only time I've been in Rexburg is when we have driven from Jackson Hole, Wyoming, to head back home to Utah. You don't see much of the city doing that.
