What a joyous day for us to greet Elder Alvaro home after serving an honorable mission!
I always love taking pictures while the car is moving. It’s not as easy as it looks because everything just zooms by and you gotta be quick to capture. It ‘s like click it or lose it and in the process you hope that the pictures turn out decent.
I never get tired of the rocky, rugged, and mountainous terrain of the west. The images are embedded deep in my heart and mind and the pictures are just fragments of my memory of the great wild west.
I also love bonding with my family while we’re traveling. We’ve spent countless hours Suburban enjoying the scenery, listening to our favorite music or the scriptures, and just talking about whatever. We have the best family memories during our travels.
It was the day I’ve been anxiously waiting for more than a decade. I’ve finally been sworn in as a United States citizen. While it may not be as dramatic as crossing the Atlantic and arriving at New York Harbor being welcomed by Lady Liberty but it was still as meaningful. I had finally become a part of the greatest nation on earth.
Ralph also got his citizenship about a month later from mine.
