Farewell Day - Family Dinner

Tanner and Madi performing "The Cave" by Mumford and Sons
From Tanner's Mom:
Tanner gave a great talk at our ward.  Many people said he sounded like a return missionary already.  We filled the chapel and the gym to the back.  Tanner has a lot of friends!  We had all our family and extended family over for dinner afterward.  We had about 50 people here.   We had "cafe rio" styled food, with tortillas, black beans, rice, lettuce, cheese, tomatoes, salsa, sourcream, guacamole, and tortilla strips on top.  Everyone really like it.  (it was as close to Guatemalan food as I could come up with)  We had the wonderful Missionary cake and mini flower cupcakes for dessert with icecream.  Tanner and Madison played a song for everyone by the Mumford Brothers.. Tanner played the guitar while they both sang and Madi did the tambourine.  They love singing/playing guitars together.  It was a really nice visit with everyone and it was great to see so much family attend to come and support Tanner.  Tanner is the first grandchild to serve a mission on both sides of the family, as well as the first Great-grandchild to serve a mission on the extended sides of the family as well.  Thank you all for coming!

Quotes from Tanner:
I asked Tanner how he felt his talk went. He said "it was good I guess."  What about seeing so many people filling the chapel? What did he think?  "It seems about right." And for the family dinner after?  "I was glad everyone came."
