Some say the world will end with fire.

Others say with ice.

From what I've tasted of desire

I hold with those that favor fire.

But if I had to perish twice,

I think I know enough of hate,

To say that for destruction ice,

Is also great and would suffice.

Robert Frost

Yesterday we drove about 200 miles to baptize our grandson. It was an awesome experience to get to do that. He was a little scared of what was going to happen but I talked to him and assured him he would be OK. The water was kind of cold and took his breath away for a second but he was fine with it and is glad to be baptized.

We took him and his family to McDonalds for lunch afterward since he wanted to go there and the family doesn't get to go out to eat much. They had lots of fun playing in the play area and really liked the games.

The trip over was pretty easy and I drove. Had about 12 miles of snowy roads on the interstate but it was just getting started and was an easy drive. While we were there I had a problem develop with my back and I could barely walk so Inklings drove home. She drove through blizzards and on slick roads most of the way. We both estimated that she had about 12 miles of good roads to drive on. But she has lots of experience driving through blizzards since we lived near Flaming Gorge Dam and she drove lots of times when she had to use the delineator posts to know where the road was.

Congratulations! I'm glad you got home safely

I'm glad you both got home safe too, even if Inklings can drive in snow! I'm also very glad you were able to perform the baptism!
