Elder Pierce RETURNS.

After 2 years of serving a mission in Richamond, Virginia, for our church, he has come home! We are so proud of him! He worked hard and has come home a man! We were all so excited to see him that we couldn't sleep the night before. In reality, he was suppose to come home the night of June 15th. But one of his flights was delayed which forced him to miss his connecting flight to St George (yes, st.george has an airport). So we had to wait a few more hours than expected to see him. He finally arrived home early on June 16th. And what a sweet reunion it was! When he left, Kate was only 11 months old. Now she's 3! Her and her cousins were so excited to see their uncle Kyle again! They were waiting anxiously to see him come off the plane and they gave him BIG hugs right when they saw him! And here is the documentation of 'the Return.'

We made a bunch of signs to welcome him home!


a bunch of his friends were also there to welcome him.

Elder Loveland and Elder Pierce both returning home from VA.


We stayed and hung out with Kyle the week he came home and on Sunday he gave his Homecoming talk in church. It was awesome. I can't believe how much he has grown in the past two years. All his friends were there who also served missions and now are all home! I'm so grateful for all his good friends! You guys are awesome!




We are so glad you're home, Kyle! Keep up the good work!
He's heading up to BYU for the fall and winter semesters and i'm sure he'll do great!
Love You KD.

P.S. Ladies: he's single, i can hook you up.
(he's gonna be one great husband!)
