Turning 24 in Bangkok

Perfect start of a birthday is a bowl (or two or three...) of Swiss Choco Bits, a cereal that we have only seen in Thailand and it's our favorite! Filled with nutella we can't get enough. We seriously finished a whole box between the two of us that morning. Tyson also LOVES the juices here and we have a couple of options each morning. His new favorite is Red Grape, while mine is Mango.
For his birthday dinner, Tys requested Curry Chicken Crepes from me and Janis made a White Chocolate Macadamia nut cake.
Elder Johnson serving in Thailand celebrated his birthday too so they shared a cake and ice cream. Sister Bernard on the left held Taryn as she told me about her 10 month old grandchild who just started walking. It is truly a big sacrifice to leave your children and serve the Lord.
Ties to go with his suit he is having made here and a sweater to prepare for the colder weather in Italy and Washington D.C. were great gifts to prepare him for the next couple of years. And who could forgot being in Thailand for his 24th birthday- thank you Jackie and Craig!

Tyson was happy that on his birthday he was able to spend quality time with his Dad while they traveled to Gulati (same place Pres. Hinckley had a suit made) to get Tyson's suit for his Graduation/ Birthday present. Tyson told me it has been 5 years since he spent a birthday with his parents (His mission, their first mission to Hong Kong, and then their 2nd mission in Thailand) I know that this time Tyson has to spend with his parents means the world to him. I have loved getting to spend time with them as well and watching them get to know Taryn- their 12th grandchild.
