Rachel! I mean... Sister Hutchison

Seeing Rachel was one of the best parts of our vacation. I was pacing the doors before we found her. We'd scheduled a tour which I thought it would be the traditional temple square kind but she took us to some of her favorite parts on the square. It was so fun. I almost felt like I was just hanging out with my sister until Brent corrected me every time I called her Rachel. Actually, when he'd say "sister hutchison" in my direction as a reminder I'd think he was talking to me! I haven't been sister hutchison for 2 1/2 years! Brent's parents were with us for the tour.
The first thing she said wasn't directed to me at all. It was "now this is who I've been waiting to see!"
Classic pose. This was also the beginning of the end because she got too frustrated with me and my camera.
She took me to the mission office. They checked their mail but unfortunately didn't find anything. To all of you who are reading this you stil have one month to cheer her up!

Man, time flies! Can you believe it has been 2 1/2 years since you got home from your mission? and Rachel will be home in a month! I'm so excited! We will definitely have to go to Tuscaloosa to see her. I bet she was especially excited to see her new little nephew!
