Birthday Boy

We had a little birthday party for Jeffrey tonight. It was just a small celebration with Dave's brother and his family. He didn't eat much of the cupcake, mostly it just got smashed, but we just couldn't let the event go by without a proper Mann family birthday party -poster, cake, and all. Happy Birthday Jeffy.

Picking up Ryan From His MIssion

Well this blog is all out of order since I can't seem to be able to move thngs around. So the last pictures I import end up at the top completely out of order. So you will have to read from the bottom of the blog and up for the right order So....After touring Ryan's mission we went to Provo and visited Grant and Brit. We are pictured here outside Mimi's where we had lunch and Ryan was also visit with Lonnie who he met before the mission and wrote him. And then you can see us arriving at the airport and havng Evan and Heather with Conner and Orion and Camila with Owen and Sullivan greeting us there. Ryan met Sullivan, Orion and Owen for the first time.


Our first day we went up to Logan and met up with a wonderful group of missionaries in the Logan Tabernacle . We were also able to attend a session in the Logan Temple. Later that day we met with Pres and Sister Joyce. We cannot tell you how much Pres and Sis Joyce expressed their deep love and appreciation for Ryan. We enjoyed a wonderful dinner at a very fine restaurant that evening and were invited to stay at the mission home that night. We had such a wonderful visit with the Joyces.

The next day we visited a couple areas where Ryan served. We had a great time visiting people in the town of Garland. He is pictured here with the McKee family. Bro McKee served as Ward Mission Leader and worked with Ryan while he served there. Again, it was so wonderful to hear the expressions of gratitude for the work that Ryan had done there.

Here is Marlena and I when we first saw Ryan as we picked him up from the mission office in Ogden.
We had a wonderful trip and it was great to be a part of Ryans completion of a very successful mission.

Picture Proof

Here is the picture proof, here he is actually crawling. He is getting fast too. Although he still frequently decides it's too much work and it's just easier to wail at mom so she can come move me. He's crazy.
