Happy Birthday, Nate!!!

Incredible as it may seem, it's true! Nate turned 19 today. I can hardly believe it. Seriously, where did the time go?

Today was a big day for Nate. He, Derek and Parker left early this morning to spent a few hours riding at the sand dunes. They had a great time, despite the wind and heat.

Then, when they got home, Nate, Derek and I got ready to go to the temple....Nate's first time. It was a wonderful experience to share with him. After we went to the temple, we took Nate for dinner at the Garden Restaurant at the top of the Joseph Smith Memorial Building. We had a fabulous window seat with a view of the temple. It was wonderful!

When we got home, Nate opened his presents. Sorry, when you're 19 and about to leave on a mission, your presents aren't as fun as they used to be. He got an electric razor. Woo hoo! And a set of luggage! Yea! He was grateful, nonetheless.

And speaking of the mission, it's less than month away!!! Yikes! It's exciting, scary and sad....all at the same time.

Hope your day was great, Nate! You are such a wonderful young man. I am proud to be your mom!
