Casey's Farewell

Casey's Farewell was February 21, 2010. He had a lot of support from his family and friends.
Casey gave a good talk, his subject was "Let Virtue Garnish thy Thoughts." He talked about lessons he learned while working on the farm and "Enjoying time in the mountains with his dad." He talked about what has helped him prepare to serve a mission. It was a good talk with a lot of laughs and also a spiritual aspect. We enjoyed hearing his testimony and about how excited he is to serve our Heavenly Father as a Missionary.

We will miss him lots but know that he is doing the right thing by serving a Mission.

We went on a great family vacation to spend some time with my little brother before he leaves on his mission. We went on an awesome cruise to the Mexican Rivera. We got on the Sapphire Princess and enjoyed just relaxing and having a good time. I really needed to relax after being put in as Primary President and Christmas and New Years it was nice to be pampered and spend some great quality time with Brett who has worked so hard for our family.

On the boat we enjoyed going to the movies, playing shuffle board (every night), hot tubing, amazing food, having a room steward come in and clean our room every night and morning, whale watching, playing cards on the balcony, reading books, sleeping in, staying up late, taking naps, getting a tan, and watching the sunset.

Off the boat we enjoyed going snorkeling, zip-lining through the jungle, taking tours of Mexico, glass bottom boats, playing on the beach, buying jewelery and junk, great weather, warm sandy beaches, and awesome memories. Thanks mom and dad we will never forget the awesome memories we made. Casey we will miss you lots over the next two years but know you will be a great missionary.
