A Glimpse Into the Future

If you want to melt all the hearts in the Provo MTC, all you have to do is take 4 tiny, related prospective missionaries in matching ties and you'll have the whole place swooning your every move. 
That's right. We toured the MTC. To which people said, "...why?..." And to which we said, "We have FOUR BOYS! You can't NOT tour the MTC when given the chance when you have 4 little dudes whose futures surely include some sort of stint in that building."
So we toured the MTC which largely consisted of me trying to create photo ops for my boys to recreate when they get their name tag, and them doing everything in their power to sabotage my vision.
Little do they know they've made the future pictures all the more funny to recreate. I got you this time, young saboteurs. 
We went with our friends which added to the vision of cuteness that could happen should any of our boys happen to be at the MTC at the same time. I mean, just picture the adorable recreation! Well...My boys had other ideas. 
Proud daughter moment when I found my parents' picture on the wall of Mission Presidents. 
More uncooperativeness. 
And now my boys have caused Hinckley to turn on me as well. 

It was fun to introduce my boys to the life of a missionary. They've heard Jeff talk about the MTC and they really liked seeing it for themselves (even if the pictures don't necessarily align with that narrative).

The faces of your boys made me laugh!! Especially the last one of Carson.

"Proud daughter moment" made your dad tear up.

Looking at those four little boys and thinking of their futures gives one to pause to reflect. They will be the best missionaries ever because "they had been taught by their mother, that if they did not doubt, God would deliver them" (Alma 56:47).

Keep up the good work of raising the grandboys in righteousness.

Your boys are the best picture takers! Either they are smiling and irresistibly adorable, or they are making the funniest faces which are irresistibly adorable also! Can't wait for the recreations in 11 years!
