BLAKE

My favorite cousin, Blake, got home from his mission in New Hampshire last week. I've been counting down this day for the last month. It was so exciting to see him walk through those doors; I think a missionary homecoming is one of the most thrilling experiences ever! He's such a wonderful guy and so fun to be around. He has always made me feel good about myself and treats me so well. He spoke on Sunday and did a great job. I can tell that he truly loved his mission and worked very hard. What a strong testimony he has and my testimony of missionary work was strengthened by the experiences he had. I love you, Blake!


I pretty much tackled the kid.
The Bingham fam.

His adorable niece, Daphne, that he met for the first time that night.
Jacoby was excited to meet Blake, too. Probably more excited to be able to stay up until 11 o'clock.

There is nothing more fun than going to the airport when a missionary comes home and this was no exception. We are so glad to have Blake home and we know he was a great missionary.

That photo of Jacoby is darling and he looks so old!!!

Hey Missy! That was so nice of you to do a page about Blake returning home. I have to agree with you that Missionary Homecomings are about the best thing ever!!!! We LOVE having him home. I'm glad you two are such great friends! And that we are too! I love your family!
