Slept in. Yep!

Let this day commence.......
The family started to arrive around Noon, then we headed down to the church to make sure we had enough seats for our family. We expected a pretty big crowd and indeed it was. Lots of people there to show their love and support to both Bryon and Tanner. It was a lovely sight. They both looked handsome sitting up on the stand in their suits, missionary haircuts and classy ties. Speaking of ties --- A tradition of a blue tie has been passed down from missionary to missionary in our ward for the past few Elders. It was really fun to watch as Tanner was done speaking for him to take off the blue tie and hand it to Bryon to put on for his turn. TRADITION!

|Supportive Friends after Sacrament|
After Sacrament we ventured home and enjoyed some Hawaiian Haystacks (appropriate huh?) with the family. I was able to transform my front from from this............
|A Journal where friends and family wrote notes of encouragement for Tanner to read on his mission|
It was a beautiful day and I'm grateful to my family who shared it with me. ~ BLESS YOU!
