Plus, a bunch of my family was coming down for a few days to see Max and be there for the homecoming so we were anxious to get back and see them. My parents were already staying at our house so they were set to come pick us up.
Ahhh, so great to see everyone all reunited.
And you can’t very well do something special like finishing a mission without the “Eyre Fire” cheer from my family:
haha…I’m sure all the other airport people were amused…or annoyed:)
Loved the posters the cousins made:
Max with the boys:
Max with the girls:
Check out all these cute and interested cousins:
And this one…Cubby put the symbol on the wrong side so he just put an arrow to the other corner to make it right:
The “babes” were back together:
And two of three of “group 1″…hooray!
So grateful all these siblings drove all that way with their kids to be with us for that special weekend.
We came home and ate and sat around and talked and talked.
Then Max showed them a few pictures from the mission and explained a lot more about Taiwan…
I loved, loved, loved the feeling in that room. Love and spirit-filled thick and beautiful as everyone asked lots of questions and were in awe at Max’s Chinese at the end (I requested that he share his feelings in Chinese 🙂 Here is the end of the Chinese:
After that, Ashton showed us all the video he made from the reunion last summer that Max had missed (Grace too but she had seen it). Loved reminiscing those great summer memories!
And then: cookies.
