Coming Home

When Hyrum woke up on Thursday morning, I made this mistake:
"We get to go to the airport and see Adam come home today!"
The plane came in at 11:30 pm. I wasn't lying, buy I might as well been, because to Hyrum today means now. From that moment on he couldn't stop talking about it. He even brought his Spiderman bag upstairs and told me he needed to pack. He was a little disappointed when he realized we weren't riding on an airplane. He was so confused when I put him down for his nap, and even more confused when I put him down for bed.

But he was thrilled (after a few groggy minutes) when we woke him up and told him it was time to go! He stayed awake the whole drive up to the "hairport" talking about seeing Uncle Adam.
And see Adam we did:

The Sighting

First Meeting

We commented on how skinny he is and he said, "You don't know what it's like to eat beans and rice every day." Then he looked around at all of us and said, "You've all been eating well." He then came right out and called us fat. We thought that was funny. He will fatten up too. (He's so skinny he has even lost his cheeks--that is hard to do for us Bezzants!)

Adam had been in lock down the last week in Honduras because a gang, angry at the United States because of this, was out to get all the gringos.

When he went to leave Honduras he discovered that his visa had not been done properly and that he had only received permission to be in Honduras for 90 days. They were going to arrest them and not allow them to leave the country. Adam said the church paid 7000 lemps for each elder to get through, as kind of a bribe.

Good thing he served an honorable mission and we were all praying he would get home safe!

Welcome home Adam!

And in other news: Welcome baby Tristan!
