About three dozen cars full of people showed up to greet Mrs. Bush at the church in Sims.
They were the only ones allowed inside, but one resident was determined to get a glimpse of the motorcade, and maybe the First Lady, from his property, which borders the church.
Darrel Jacobson spent a few hours riding around his land on horseback, waiting for Laura Bush to arrive.
He says there has been a lot of excitement in the area lately, and he says he wanted to see what was happening.
"I thought it was pretty neat," says Jacobson. "You have a story to tell, just one of those things that, if you don`t show up, you missed a good opportunity. Things like that don`t happen everyday."
He says his parents were married in the church.
Don't really have anything to add or real reason to post other than it was kind of nice to have the First Lady visit and it was just a cool story.
