rewind--- awh babies in summer 2010
Of course he would look different though! I really think missions help young men to evolve into great looking men! There's no doubt about it in my mind. We decided we would go get some ice cream at Cold stone Creamery because Mark has never had it before. It took us awhile to make our decisions. I went with 'All loving, no oven' and Mark had some sort of berry cheesecake in a waffle bowl. As we ate our ice cream, I got to hear lots of stories about Mark's LDS mission in Vancouver. He told me the good stories and I am super glad that he enjoyed his experience so much. He even said he would go back and serve for longer if he could. We lost track of time and ended up looking around at one point and realizing we were the only people in Tim Hortons. Awkward... so we got out of there. I still wasn't really in the mood to go home so we went for a little walk and kept talking about his missions, our lives in general, our future plans and all that other adult kind of stuff. Mark is hoping to go to BYU in Provo, Utah. I hope he gets in because he seems like he really knows he will be happy there. Next thing we knew it was like 1:30am and we had lost so much track of time talking about so many different things!
I am grateful for our friendship in the gospel and for the sacrifice that Mark took to serve a mission. He wants to be a dentist, so is onto the next long chapter of his life... along with finding a wifey, right Mark?
Come back and visit soon, or I'll go to Utah. Whatever works kiddo.
