The day has finally arrived. Tyler went into the Missionary Training Center in Provo, Utah today, December 15th. What a neat experience. Tyler's one request was to see his Great Grandma Bliss. Being a returned missionary herself, she gave Tyler great advice for his mission. After a sweet and tearful goodbye, we left for lunch at  Toucanos Brazilian Grill (Tyler's favorite). Then we were off to the curb of the MTC where we were reassured by (4) 19 year old missionaries that Tyler was in good hands. There were a lot of tears and hugs. It was one of the hardest and best things I have ever done!

We love You
Elder Tyler Clark Roberts!

Saying Goodbye!

December 14, 2010. Tyler was set apart as a missionary tonight at our home by President Larkin and President Taylor, along with Bishop Nash and Tyler's Grandpas. We then had a beautiful testimony meeting with our family including Tyler's grandparents, brothers, and the Millers. It was so neat! Then friends of Tyler's filtered in and out through out the evening. What a great day!

The final days!

The last few weeks have been really fun for our family spending time with Tyler. We saw the Forgotten Carols, went surfing at the flowrider, wrestled with the brothers, ate a little sushi (Mom and Tyler's favorite), first-time pedicure, more wrestling, lots of skiing, and lots of funeral potatoes.

Tyler was embarrassed about getting a pedicure- which I made him do, but he loved it and thought it was Awesome!
