Building a Mountain Bike Trail at Eagle Park

Building a Mountain Bike Trail at Eagle Park

It was actually spring in Rexburg, Idaho. With the snow melted, we took to the streets. The kids and I went for rides every chance we got. We’d discovered some fun little spots at the Nature Park only about a mile away from our house so that became a favorite route. There was somewhere else I wanted to check out though. A few years ago, we tried going for a walk through Eagle Park. I remember a lot of backtracking and really not getting through but that there was some sort of trail there.

One year, I bought way too many green apple frooties for an expo. I couldn’t even give them all away at Halloween. After weeks of snacking on them at work, it hit me. I needed caramel. Then I came up with these little delights which, to me, are what I always want real caramel apples to taste like.

Love His Children

Love His Children

This is a talk I was asked to give in an LDS Sacrament Meeting on Mother’s Day 2017. 

Last time I spoke in this ward was on Easter Sunday a few years ago. I talked of one of the Savior’s final lessons before the Atonement when he taught, “As I have loved you, love one another.” I would like to continue these remarks today as I speak about our commission to love our Heavenly Father’s children.
