A very fond farewell

Colby's farewell talk in sacrament meeting was on May 29.  He said he was more nervous to speak in church, than to leave for the MTC.  He did a great job and we were so grateful for all the love and support of our family, friends and ward.  Colby has so many great people in his life that have helped him get to this point.  We love and appreciate all of you.

I love to see the temple

Once Colby had received his mission call, he told us that he wanted to take out his endowments in the San Diego temple.  We didn't think this was an option, since we had family and friends that we wanted to include.  He agreed, and on May 7, 2016, he went to the Bountiful Temple.  It was an amazing experience to be there with him.  He enjoyed the whole experience and we were so happy to be able to share the day with our friends and family.

The next weekend, we took Colby to California.  We went to the San Diego Temple, and it was amazing!  We drove up to Los Angeles, and visited the grounds of the Los Angeles Temple and the Visitors Center.  We also drove through a portion of his mission boundaries and went to a Dodgers game.  It was great to be able to spend this time with him.  He is excited to be a resident of California soon.
