My friend Bernt Jenkins came home to Star Valley over the weekend, bringing two very kind Russian friends of his with him. I went home to see them and to do a few other things too (namely get out of Rexburg for the weekend). We went on a dirt bike ride in the morning and the girls got pretty muddy—but they had a lot of fun. We then went to Jackson Hole and to Jenny Lake. On Sunday I had my birthday meal with the extended family (a tradition we’ve had in our family for as long as I can remember). Turned out to be a great weekend.
