Colt's missionary homecoming!

Parking right next to me at the airport...
Here is the wonder Mom, my niece Carly, and her 4.  Enoch was working at his new job in Visalia.

 The waited anticipation at the airport
(I know, we have a funny looking airport.  
With all the fake trees suddenly growing there, it reminds me of a 4th grade science project.) 

 Dad says he remembers these tress when they were just a foot tall!
(no one makes me laugh like he does, well, except Dennis :)

Dad and Susan got in the fun of holding one of Colt's head shots.
Do you know that they are talking about going to Thailand soon??
No one seems to know why.  I mean, I'm sure they do, but I didn't ask them.

 Colt's brother Jake with his girlfriend, Katie Cleveland
I told Katie to be in the family picture and she said, "No, not yet."

My nephew, Colt Kennington, just freshly returned from the Georgia Atlanta mission.
Oh the sweet arrival.  Back with his Mom again after not seeing her for 2 years!

Hard to believe Peggy is a grandmother of FOUR!

Colt and his family back together again.

Just a few family members at the airport!

Then on to Peggy and Jeff's house. (Wish I had taken pictures of the fabulous food!)

So why did my picture of Scott & Kim turn out the best when he is the one who calls me annoying?
I'm not worried, he never reads my blog. :)

Wasn't this such a cute gift cousin McKenzie made for Colt's homecoming?

Wow! That went fast. Mom told me the other day that he came home. Glad you had a nice family get-together.

Jill said...

I thought it went by fast too, but I doubt his Mom would agree. To me it seemed like he had another year to go.

The missionary homecoming is the best!!! You took some really good pictures of your family. What great family support! Your nephew Jake looks so much like your brothers Richard and Scott and of course like Peggy. And those two years always do go slower for the mom :-)

Now that's a nice looking family! There's nothing quite like a MISSIONARY Homecoming. If you remember, ask him if he remembers a missionary named Andrew Miller from Fontana. Just thought I'd ask.

Thailand is one of those places I've always wanted to visit. I'm sure there's a very good reason they're going and it will be worth it.

PS I love McKenzie's poster. But of course I love McKenzie so anything she does I think is cute.

Dad and Susan said...

We love your new camera and the awesome pictures you're able to take with it. Thanks for chronicling this wonderful event for the family! We loved all the happy memories and feelings this momentous occassion elicited. Being there was a real treat. Love, Dad and Susan

Aren't big families the best? And I have to say, those fake trees made a great backdrop for the family photos!

Jill said...

Just think Mary...Jacob's turn is coming soon!

Mary said...

I know, and it's such an odd mix of excited anticipation and nervousness. Can you already miss someone while they're still at home?!

These are the very best kinds of days.
