Amanda’s cousin, Jed Rawson, decided he wanted to stop and see Washington. He made the arrangements to stay with Dennis and Gwen in Springfield. We went up for Thursday. We had a busy little day. We visited the Capitol, Library of Congress, National Archives, Air and Space Smithsonian, Natural History Smithsonian, Washington Temple, FDR Monument, Lincoln Memorial, Jefferson Memorial, Washington Monument, and I am sure there is something I missed. Oh we did stop at the White House too. It was a busy day and you can see that in the photos.
In other news, Ross Andra had a pretty major heart attach at church last week in Salt Lake City. I am not sure what doctrine they were teaching but it definitely knocked him over.
I received a phone call last weekend from Iona Mellor in Anaheim, California. She is my cousin as a daughter of Otto Andra. It was good to visit with her for more than an hour. I sent off some group sheets to her so she could return them to me with some more information. I look forward to hearing back from her.
I posted a blog earlier on the Presidential debate. Talk about a few people nipping at me since! Geez. Relax a little people.
Tomorrow I spend the day working at the National Genealogical Society’s convention here in Richmond. That should definitely be interesting. The church made quite a few announcements for it. They are literally about to move a mountain! The Granite Mountain!
