When one returns, one leaves...

So a little over three weeks ago this guy left to Tempe, Arizona on his mission. Easton and I got to travel to Provo to drop him off at the MTC, before that Shannon met us for lunch at Panda Express..Garrett's favorite place ever to eat. We already miss Garrett so much. When we go back to my parents house easton said 'we're gonna see nana, papi, whit-wee, and garwhet' I think he's still a little confused as to why he's not there? The hardest part was watching him say goodbye to my Mom, fear of the unknown with what will happen with her. He's already doing so great and we are so proud of him! Love you Garrett!
But before Garrett left...we got Tanner back! Tanner is such a stud and we are so happy to have him back! He came back so mature and nice, not that he wasn't before but the mission just does something to these boys! The other night when I got home from a long day of doing hair he brought me a brownie sundae with chocolate and caramel spread on it and grated up almond rocha on top! He will make some woman very happy one day! He's still a little gangsta from being in Detroit...
with my parents at the airport!
So glad you are back Tan!
I'm pretty sure I have the coolest little brothers...

Jazz game!

Last month we had the opportunity to go to a Jazz vs. Suns game with my family!
Here's the whole family together after the win....YAY! Go Jazz! My dad scored us some great seats on the 10th row of the lower bowl..he even scored a couple seats on the front row that were switched between my three youngest siblings and my mom and dad!
Tanner, Garrett, and Whitney and my dad (on his cell) on the front row
The ref gave the ball to Garrett during timeout
Ang & Chan sat with us during the game

warming up

Garrett and the jazz bear were instant friends!
Some cool things about the game. We looked directly above us and sitting in a suite right above was President Monson! So cool! Also, Shannon's friend from work is one of the cameramen for the Jazz so he put us on the big screen! I was excited until I realized how horrible I looked on such a big screen! Yikes! It was lots of fun! Thanks again Mom & Dad!
