(Todd writing) We just got back from a three day trip to Boise, Idaho. My cousin Spencer got married to one of three triplets, and we're so happy for him. We had a great trip, especially riding in a 15-passenger van with my parents, my grandpa, and three of my mom's sisters. My aunt Mimi always has fun stories to share, like how her 17-year-old daughter discovered the most comfortable shoes in her mom's closet. She wanted to wear the shoes to work, that is until she found out they were temple slippers.
On the wedding day we attended my cousin's sealing in the Boise Temple. Afterwards we went on a bike ride through Boise on the Greenbelt, a nice biking/walking trail that goes through the heart of Boise. That evening we went to the reception, and then finished the night with a game of speed scrabble. Also, my aunts "revealed" the sex of our baby with an old wives method of dangling a needle from Rachel's palm. Apparently we are having a girl, but I don't believe in witchcraft so I'm still unsure.
