MTC Day!

We met Grandma & Grandpa Yoss at Village Inn for breakfast. Because he was a missionary... our waitress gave everyone a free piece of pie! After breakfast, we went to American Fork to pay respect to Cody's Great-Grandfather who is buried there. We then went to Mt. Timpanogos Temple to admire the beauty of the Temple and spend a few more minutes together as a family. A few more pictures were taken and then good-bye's to Grandma & Grandpa Yoss.
Time to head to Provo... and the MTC drop-off. We were able to park in the lot above the MTC and walk across the street to take a few pictures and watch the "drop-off" process which is literally over in minutes. We then walked back to the parking lot and witnessed Cody's good-bye's to the siblings. Very emotional... especially for Colton who will be submitting his papers to serve his mission the end of April. Colton hugged his brother, told him he was proud of him and his example & he'd let him know where he would be called. Colton then looked him in the eye and said, "I'll see you in 2 1/2 years." As the mother of these boys, I couldn't hold back the tears.
We drove down into the MTC drop off zone...where we were greeted by Elder Talle (Czech Republic Mission) who helped Elder Robertson with his luggage. One last hug and off he went with the biggest smile on his face. He had been ready for weeks & was ready for the best 2 years of his life!
