Leaving Home

We left the MTC on Friday, April 24 and went home to pack our suitcases, rest and wash clothing on Saturday.  On Sunday, April 26, we attended Sacrament meeting to hear Carol and John Padilla report on their mission to Peru.  After the meeting, the family and extended family gathered at Joe Junior and Jen's home to celebrate Carol's 80th birthday.

After celebrating until 2:00 p.m., we left to gather our suitcases and leave for the airport.  Getting all our luggage and carry-on bags into the airport was a challenge, but once they were checked, it was clear sailing.
This is just a little bit of luggage!

We left Salt Lake at 9:15 p.m. on Sunday and arrived in Auckland, New Zealand, at 5:30 a.m. on Tuesday, April 28.  These pictures were taken in the New Zealand Airport.

Here's a few pictures of Carol's 80th birthday:

 Kendall, Carol, Theron, and Neala - we missed Elynn.
