On the 4th of July, Scott and Kaye Johnson of our ward were in Minnesota and asked if they could take Elder Anderson and Elder Kershaw to the Twins game vs. the Oakland A's. Taylor got permission from President Forbes and they arranged to go with the Johnsons and their family. It was so exciting for all of us at home to know that Taylor would be spending the day with people that we know and love. We are so grateful to Scott and Kaye for their generosity and willingness to pick them up and take them with their family to the game. We can't wait to hear about it next week in Taylor's email.
This was taken when they first picked the Elders up at their apartment in Red Wing:
Kaye sent me this text with the following pictures: "Wow, we just had the best day! He is doing wonderful! Looks great as always. He bought him a new hat and smiled the whole day:) He loves all of you and misses you and Spanish Fork. I think we got him caught up on everyone in our ward and town. Pictures to follow! We are so glad we got to do this. We had a wonderful 4th of July!!"
Needless to say we were very excited to receive that text. I admit I did cry quite a bit. It was so wonderful to know that someone I know was with our boy today. I know that Taylor will never forget this experience and neither will Steve or I. It was a wonderful day!

Having pizza for lunch right before the game: Taylor looks so great!
We love the Johnsons so much! They are wonderful people and we are lucky to call them our friends.
