Our daughter, L is going to England!Today was her "opportunity to speak on a gospel topic in Sacrament Meeting pryor to leaving on her mission" (farewell)
It was full of Friends (eating)
Baby E getting passed around and a happy Grandpa
and more friends from high school...
from church and the neighborhood...
and Moab (river)
and grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins.
It was a great day that was long awaited, well prepared for (could have been better) and much anticipated. We baked and prepared for days, most of the week even and figured around 50 people would show up. There were 72 at one count and that didn't get them all. We ran out of plates first, breakfast casserolle next and forks next. Thank goodness we have peaches and apples on the tree and continued to cut up fruit. It was so fun to hear L speak along with her friend and past Young Women leader, Shannon and to see everyone enjoying themselves and to visit with our family and friends. It will be a busy week to get her all ready to fly out on Thursday.
Thanks to everyone who came and supported us today. It's a parents payday!
