After we finished up out fun at the MIAMI BEACH BOWL we climbed into the car and began our 20 hour journey to Keller, Texas, Mike's home town.
What made this even better? A stop in Alabama to see my sister and as a bonus, my parents were there visiting her!
After a good little "nap" and breakfast we drove to Bessemer to visit Mike's mission. I loved seeing one of the areas he served in.
We finally got to Keller and it was so nice to see the house all decorated and of course the family!
This is Dave and Rebecca Smith. Dave was Michael's Young Mens leader when he was a teen. They have recently been called to serve as Mission President in the New York New York North Mission. We were able to visit them and chat about everything going on and it was one of my favorite nights! I am so excited for them and all the wonderful things they will do while serving the Lord in New York. I am also SUPER excited to be designing their mission blog so you'll here more about them later.
Finally, because you need something to laugh at....
While heading to a favorite Keller mexican restaurant, Kassandras, I ate it and ate it hard!
We had such a wonderful time celebrating the holidays in Keller with Mike's family. Now, it's home for Michael's shoulder surgeries.
