My brother, Ian, came to visit me and Adam about a month ago - in May.
It was wonderful to see him, even though we had just spent 2 weeks together after Briana died.
We found out April 7th that Ian will be serving a 2 year proselyting mission for our church (The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints) in Quito, Ecuador!
We are very excited for him and the learning, growing, exploring, serving, and teaching he will do - but of course we will miss him terribly.
Ian leaves July 13th for the Provo MTC (Missionary Training Center). This visit will be the last time I see Ian until he comes back in July of 2013! He won't get to see our baby (except in photos) since we're expecting it at the end of July, but Ian said he's glad he'll be home for it's 2nd birthday - when things get really cute (and feisty).
We had wonderful, sunny weather for Ian's visit and squeezed in as much as we could into 3 days.
Ian arrived by train from Portland after visiting his friend, Ben.
We walked around Seattle together, went to one of our birth classes, climbed at Marymoor Park and the Redmond Vertical World, went to the Seattle temple, and ate quinoa salad at the Kirkland Waterfront:
Here is our last photo together:
I love you, Ian! I'm going to miss you so much. Good luck in Ecuador.
Here is a funny video we made of pregnant me, dancing:
