welcome home elder shields




he's home!  we all picked him up at the slc airport today.  he seems a little taller.  we all wore name tags since there are 5 new nieces and nephews that he has never met, ha!  after he was released he put on his jeans and bright lime green t-shirt.  we think colton is back.....

we spent time at the airport, got released with the stake pres. and then had a nice relaxing pizza picnic in the backyard.  it was perfect.  derek is flying in tomorrow for the weekends festivities and we are having our family picture taken too.  this will be the first one in 7 years!  the last one we did was when i got home from my mission.

please come to hear him speak on sunday morning at 10:50 am, i am sure that you will not be disappointed.
