3 weeks from tonight...

Britney will arrive in the Salt Lake International airport 3 weeks from tonight. August 12th, Wednesday, at 9:30 pm.

We welcome family and Brit's good friends to be there. We will be there by 9:00 p.m. securing our place at the bottom of the escalator. We will forewarn airport security about the potentially crazy group of loved ones and likelihood of animated powerful noises authored by a proud and supportive grandmother.

We have decided to stay in Utah after picking Brit up. She will be released on Thursday morning which will surely be a difficult moment for her. She has loved and embraced everything it means to be a missionary. We will be remaining in Utah until Saturday when we will host a family/friend gathering to honor Brit and hear her report her mission.

There are many reasons prompting the change to Utah from Idaho for this gathering and none of them include purposefully creating difficulty for loved ones. It simply had to be. Fortunately, we have loving and understanding family.

I will post further details in short order.

Arriving August 12th...

She just loves sister Garcia!

Brit is arriving home August 12th. It has gone by so fast. She was sweet enough to send us some photos yesterday and we wanted to share.

We will be having a homecoming party Saturday night at 152 West 400 South Burley. It will begin at 6:30 pm. We will have a barbecue and fireside visit with Brit! Close friends and family are invited. Reply if you have questions.
Boy, are we excited to hug her and hug her and hug her! Sure hope those Filipinos have prepared her for it.
