Man I Really Need to Wrap This Up

I know I warned everyone that I would have a million posts about our stay in Washington...but I'm wearing myself out.

I mean, it was amazing and wonderful, but how many sappy posts can I write about the amazingness?

So I'm going to try and wrap it up here soon and I'm combining a few things to try and get through our adventures.

As for the next event - we went to The Glass Museum in Tacoma. It was pretty cool, but as a heads up - for the price, it's not really worth going in the actual museum because the cool stuff is outside...and free.

Here's a snapshot of some of the cool free stuff...

And here is some of the cool, not-so-free-stuff. We got to watch them do some glass-blowing, making a giant goblet. It was pretty neat to watch for the adults, but pretty boring for the kids.

It was a nice time and a lovely view.

Because I extended our trip, we were able to hang around for Kenny's 14th birthday. I was happy for him as he was ordained a teacher...and happy for me that I was finally able to attend one of my brothers' ordinations.

On Kenny's birthday, Scott gave his farewell talk, and shortly thereafter, was set apart as a missionary. And I was there for that too! I've been to the setting apart of two of Brigham's brothers, but this time I actually made it for one of mine :)

Here's the family that was able to be there.

And here's handsome Scottie, ordained as a missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.
The Spirit was very strong as he was set apart and I could tell by the look on his face that he's serious about working his hardest at being an awesome missionary!

Whew, we've covered a lot of ground here, and we're so close to documenting almost EVERYTHING that happened.

A few more wraps, and we'll be done :)
