I spent the weekend in Mesa with my parents and all five of my siblings.
The occasion: welcoming Ryan home from his two-year mission to Croatia and Slovenia for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

The weekend was delightful.
The reason: family.

Here I am with my brothers and sisters:
Ryan (21), Angie (27), David (29), Heidi (31), Eric (23), and Holly (16).
I am especially fond of the tall-short-tall-short-tall-short lineup.
And that I'm the oldest and the shortest.

Being in the temple on Saturday with Ryan, my parents, and cousins was awesome.
We also spent most of Sunday together.
Ryan spoke in sacrament meeting. He did an amazing job.
David and Rachel sang a masterful rendition of "I Walked Today Where Jesus Walked."
Then we had a family dinner and an open house for Ryan.
Eating and hanging out with everyone was the best!

I don't know how I missed taking pictures of my cousins! Amy and Ben and Rachel and Brandon....I'll get you next time! It was so lovely to see you all!

Garry managed the kids and household quite well in my absence,
despite being sick enough to be bed-ridden. I will post soon about all of their adventures.

Welcome home, Ryan!
