Russ's younger brother came home from a mission in December! He is such a good kid and an amazing example. He served two years in Taiwan and speaks Chinese like a dream. Its really cool because he served in the same mission as my brother. I got to know him for about a year before he left and its so great having him back. The same day that he came home, my mom had planned a girls weekend down town. She had a hotel reserved right in City Creek and planned to go see the Candy windows, shop and swim. I was able to meet up with them briefly and have dinner before Russ came down town to pick me up to rush to the airport. Unforuntately, we ran into a lot of traffic and ALMOST missed him!
As soon as we came down the stairs we heard screams and saw him coming down a seperate set of exalators. We made it though!
He looked so good and so happy.
Plus, she has a soft spot in her heart for animals so that makes me love her even more.
I thought for sure he would tell me something inappropriate to play a joke on me, but Ben confirmed it was right :)
