Braden just got back from his LDS Mission to Washington. Braden is Ryan's youngest brother and the last one to get home from his mission. Pretty much the last 6 years have almost been a continual mission experience in Ryan's Family. We actually haven't had a Christmas or Mother's Day where we weren't at the Stoddard's talking on the phone with a missionary! Rob, Cameron and Braden. These boys have been amazing examples to my kids about serving missions.
Calvin was super cute holding a sign for Uncle Braden!
Ryan's siblings all get bears for when they are about to leave on missions and his sister got a bear as part of getting married! They decided it was only fitting to pose with their bears and take pictures! Classic! The bears actually go on family trips while the missionaries are gone serving the Lord. I think it's adorable!
Don't be confused.... The guy in the middle that looks a little Amish is actually ROB!
