We come from a good line-of-blood!
When I married Brian - not only did I get an incredible man but I also got amazing in-laws.
This is Brian's dad. He passed away unexpectedly in August of 09.
We miss him ALOT!
He loved to play cards with the children. He is the KING of Hearts. We spent hours playing cards and laughing. It always amazed us how he would get all of the point cards which gave each of us 26 points or he would get none at all. His all-time favorite thing to do was fish. My children loved fishing with him and have great memories of all the fun times at the pond.
This is Brian's mom.
She lives in Arizona. We love it when she visits!
When she comes there is lots of book reading, crossword puzzles, tea parties, baking, game playing, and puzzle doing. She even helps with the animal chores. (yes, this grandma can even milk a goat!)
These are my parents.
They live about 45 minutes away (Salt Lake).
When we see them there is ALWAYS coloring. My girls think Nana is the worlds best color-er. And I have to agree. :-) She has spent many hours and used many crayons while being with my girls. Papa has a passion (like many of my children) for horses so they will spend many hours riding. He has also helped Hudson with the bee/honey hobby.
I absolutely adore my parents!
I am so blessed to call them "mom and dad".
(Please pray for my mom. She is not feeling well.)
I love that they are a BIG part of my children's lives.
My children love it too!
