1) A second son worthy and eager to serve a mission for two years for his Heavenly Father.
2) A great window seat to watch our sons plane leave the airport.
3) Family that lives in Utah that will take care of my boy when he arrives at the Salt Lake Airport!
1) Get a well deserved nap.
2) Clean up some around the house.
3) Run a couple errands. (Okay maybe not!) More sleep! ~smile~smile~
4) Get ready for work tomorrow....back to life, back to reality!
The photo above is a photo of everyone that came to the setting apart. My parents, brother and sister, Kevin's mother, all of our children and husband, then my Brother-in-law, Sister-in-law, three of their children and their spouses, our new little niece, Danielle's boyfriend (not pictured) and Kyle's girlfriend (not pictured), and our sons good friend, Jose (not pictured). I'm in the photo too, but I'm a hot mess. After all the stress of getting this young man out the door, lack of sleep, and the heat, I was a wreck. The hair wasn't curled and I was wearing the worst ever outfit I own BUT I had green on for St. Patrick's Day. ~smile~smile~
This is another photo of my children again and my daughter's best friend, Brittney. She is like a 3rd daughter for us.
This is the family at the airport. I still did not curl the hair. Yikes!
The boys. Missionaries: Past, Present, and Future!
Kyle and his Dad. I included this shot because this is about where Kyle and I ran into Charles Barkley, former player for the Phoenix Suns. When I say ran into, we nearly bumped right into him. When I asked my husband if her knew him, he said...."Yeah, he's just some random guy." I couldn't believe it! Of all people to not recognize a former player....Kevin! Unbelievable!!!! No joke! We saw Charles Barkley. He was maybe one to two feet away from me. Who could forget that round head of his? ~smile~
This is Charles Barkley. This was the man we saw in the airport today. Or should I say, almost ran right into.
The plane taking off down the runway.

(Ashlee, thank you so much for taking all of these cool photos. They are priceless! We so appreciate that! And thank you Victor for picking Curtis up and taking him to lunch. We appreciate that so much! This is one moment I am so grateful we have family in Utah....you see, we wish they all still lived here in Arizona with us. Utah is close, but not close enough.)
