2-8 May 2016--Our final week and Departure


We love the tall trees that line the roads in Florida. Good Bye, it has been fun.
The beautiful Houston Temple in Spring Texas about 15 minutes from Scott and Susan Rosenlund's house.
This is our final good-bye to President and Sister Berry.
Loved being in the Orlando Temple one last time with the departing missionaries.
Our Car was pack so tight we were sure if we turned a corner too fast it would burst.
Scott and Susan treated us to their favorite Mexican Food Restaurant--will you look at this fish.
Yes we enjoyed the tender flesh and left the head and bones.
We were guest for two nights in Houston in the lovely home of Scott and Susan Rosenlund.
Scott is a high school friend whose father baptized Chuck when he was 18 years old.
Our last night we went to Jimmy Hula's with Elders Ashworth/Egan/Johnson--three favorite.
Big Surprise!!! Sister Pack and her family stopped by the Orlando Mission Office.
Elder and Sister Rasmussen joined us for dinner at Biergarten (Bavarian Buffet).
We watched the oompah bands and dancing.
Our last visit to EPCOT we spent some time in the aquarium and were amazed at the Dolphin Tricks. 
I enjoyed these beautiful tulips Angela and Art sent me for Mother's Day the last week
of our mission. Always so thoughtful.
Baby Al was visible the very last day Elder Bean walked around the pond.

David and Lorna Deloach met us and the Elders at Jimmy Hula's for our last dinner ever in the Florida Orlando Mission.

Dr. Naughton was so kind to the missionaries and helped Dr. Elder Bean and the nurse with their care.

Elder Dr Bean went deep sea fishing with Dr. Naughton.
It was a successful day.
