Sean returns home from Argentina

After 2 years away from home serving as a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter day Saints, our son, Sean, came home on June 22nd. Here we are waiting for him to land at the Billings, Montana Airport.

Sean finally arrives in the terminal. We haven't laid eyes on him for two years!

Mom is the first to give him a big hug

Then it was Lacey's turn

Welcome home, Sean!
After the big reunion, we all went to lunch in Billings, then headed back home where he was released by the Stake President later that night.
Sean had a great experience and left part of his heart back in Argentina. But we are happy to have him home after such a long absence.

Grand Tetons

The Grand Teton

I was at a conference last week at the Jackson Lake Lodge in the Grand Tetons National Park

This is a shot from on top of a hill on Elk Island at the base of the Tetons

You may not be able to tell, but I was huffing and puffing after walking up a steep trail

Took a boat ride from Colter Bay to Elk Island for a Trout and Steak dinner

I enjoyed the boat ride and BBQ on Elk Island with my friends Ray and Karen

The Tetons are amazing. At the Lodge, I saw several bull moose and lots of elk. On the way home I had to drive through Yellowstone and saw Buffalo there. But never did get to see a bear even though they are out and about now. Maybe next time.
