Elder Clayton returned home on May 27, 2015 arriving at the Salt City International Airport at 4:00 p.m. I could hardly wait to go get him and bring him home to our welcome banner and balloons to greet him. We were the first ones there and got the best place in the waiting area. Seems like he took forever to finally come down the escalator, but when he did...it was just as wonderful as it should have been. That hug I have waited to give him for two years is the absolute best. There where several other missionaries on the plane with him, so it was very full and fun with exciting families and friends to greet their sons and daughters. He served so well, but oh it's great to have him home.
And then on Sunday, May 29 we had his Welcome Home. It was a beautiful day and we had so many family and friends there to support us. We are so grateful to all of you who have followed his journey as he served in the Mexico Monterrey West Mission. Well done thou good and faithful servant.
Finally all the boys are together for a picture! We sure love the Petersons!
And now they start adding to their families. Tori, Kendra and Karlee
I will forever be grateful our Father in Heaven brought these two together.
The last couple of weeks, he hasn't written much in form
s of an email. I know he is extremely busy and getting ready to finish. He is still working so hard. But, I am not going to lie, I can't wait to hug this boy!

Then on Friday we were headed down to see the Payson Temple for the Open House. Wayne asked to get his phone and these had just popped in. Tender mercy for sure. He looks so great and I know they are going to miss him...and bad!
