Au revoir, Elder Dayton!
The night before....
Tuesday, May 21, 2013
This was a somewhat stressful, but good day, ending with an amazing experience at the Stake Center when Taylor was set apart as Elder Dayton by his Stake President, Kyle S. McKay. Before that, we had some friends/neighbors over for a going away/birthday celebration. It was fun to get many of Taylor's friends together, one last time in a long while, to BBQ and enjoy each other's company. Taylor was a little stressed, trying to get a video put together of an "event" he was involved in late that afternoon - he and some of the guys crashed Amy Doxey's bridal shower and "entertained." If you want to see them in action, pull up the Giddy Up! video on Facebook. Need I say more?

The Next Day....
We headed to Provo, with a quick lunch at Rumbi Island Grill to share one last family meal for the next two years. The rest happened way too fast! A few photos near the Provo Temple grounds, and then, BAM! the host at the MTC curb was whisking Elder Dayton away. It was a sad and tear-filled goodbye, but also joyful. We know Elder Dayton is in the Lord's hands and is off to do great things!
