The Call

Mark's parents recently turned in papers to serve an LDS mission and the call has been long awaited. On Wednesday we got a call from them saying they just picked up a very important package in the mail! So Mark and I ran over to By & Cath's to watch them open up their call.

Byron was getting a little antsy and Catherine just wasn't opening it fast enough...so he tried to take matters into his own hands.
And the call.....Guatemala City, Guatemala Temple Mission! Look at their excitement...priceless.

After a month and a half of waiting Byron just couldn't hold it in any longer...I've never seen such an enthusiastic fist pump! At one point he was even throwing his glasses into the air!

So excited for their call. They leave in May and will serve for 18 months. We are so happy for them and wish them the best of luck. We sure will miss these two, but also look forward to hopefully going to Guatemala to pick them up in 18 months (that is if Melanie can arrange it?). Perhaps :)

Ok this was such a great day. You got some perfect capturing-the-moment photos. There was just one other event later that I wish had been captured on film! Ha Ha! :*
