Trip to Utah and Idaho

December 8, 2012 we went to Salt Lake City to see the lights on Temple Square and to visit some friends.  We then drove to Meridian, Idaho to vistit friends, the Pollmanns and our family in Idaho, the Esslingers.  We then drove to Rexburg, Idaho for Jake and Sam's graduation from BYUI.  We then packed up a trailer and pulled their stuff home to Sacramento in a snow storm.  Sam and Jake are moving to San Diego, the first of the year, for a job and to continue their education.  We got home on December 15, 2012.
