These are some photos to commemorate my little man's first birthday. He had a missionary themed birthday party. Our ward elders even stopped by to say hello, and wish him a happy birthday. The theme seemed especially appropriate seeing as how we were getting another missionary ready at the time, my kid brother. He has since left, to serve in the Chicago west mission; spanish speaking. For those not familiar with the idea, as a member of the church of latter day saints our young men can choose to serve a mission for two years teaching others about our church. They aren't paid, they have to pay for it themselves, They choose to serve because they want to share their faith with others. They face a lot of rejection, so spare a smile next time you see one. It will make their day.
