Wednesday morning, he slept better than expected which he was excited about!  Up and out the door by 9 with a quick stop at Wal-Mart for a razor, conditioner and a camera.  Grammy came along and we met Poppy and Justin in the Wal-Mart parking lot, ate a Carl's Jr breakfast (Cody's choice), and Cody said goodbye to Grammy and Poppy before the rest of us hit the road for Provo. I should mention that Cody didn't really eat anything for breakfast but made a trip to the bathroom to relieve some nerves with a little throwing up.

It was a nice ride with more communicating than usual since Cody was phone-less!  We stopped at the Provo City Center Temple for a few pictures, went across the street to Los Hermanos (won't go there again) for lunch, and then a FaceTime call with Aly on the 7 min ride to the MTC.

It was a busy day at the MTC with about 300 missionaries delivered that day per the nice lady that chatted with us while we were waiting our turn.  We pulled to the side of the curb, said our goodbyes which was as emotional as I expected and watched him walk off to serve our Heavenly Father and Savior for TWO years!

The drive home was still quite emotional, but 55 min after leaving the MTC (per Rylee) I got an EMAIL!  I was quite a bit giddy and then burst into tears!  Best email ever, or so it seemed at the time!
