1st stop was In-n-Out Burger

                She walked over to our Christus statue and through her emotion said, "this is my best friend."

Checking out the shrine we had set up in our house 
looking at our mission book

Her new room, all ready for her!


after a shower, we were off to Harts,
 and then to get new garments.
The Stake President came over that night to release her.
He said, "I release a lot of missionaries.  This one gets it."
It was a special, sacred day.

The next morning we were off to the temple!

The Airport!

The emotion of this day was undescribable.  BEST DAY EVER!  BEST FEELING EVER to have her home after 18 long months!!  She has served the Lord faithfully and returned home ever more tender, sweet and absolutely wonderful than she already was.  And having her and her BF cousin Cayden return home on the same flight from the same mission was the icing on the cake.

Cousin Hailey who served in Mexico.
They hadn't seen each other for 3 years
