I'm so proud to be a part of this family.
Clint's grandparents, his Uncle Milt, Aunt Sherryl & Dad Dave
Jacobi, Hailey & Jace with their great-grandparents
We traveled to Gordon, NE last weekend during our trip to Colorado to see Clint's dad's side of the family. His Gramps recently had to move to a nursing home a block away from the assisted living center where his grandma lives, so it was nice that a lot of the family was able to gather for lunch at his grandma's and then stayed to visit afterwards.
Valentine's Day had been the Friday before, and Uncle Milt & Aunt Laura had brought chocolate covered strawberries, which their granddaughter Hailey shared with the group.
We visited, played cards and played games until everyone had to leave to head back to their little corners of the world. Clint's dad had heart surgery earlier in the week, and we were so thankful that he and Mel had been able to travel down to see us. Kristi and the kids came from Hemingford, and we talked about her new job (she's going to work for FSA - I'm so excited!) and heard what was going on in Jace & Jacobi's world. Uncle Milt is night calving at his ranch, and Laura is keeping busy at her travel agency. Lance, his fiance and his daughter were here and tore up the Connect Four game. Kenny and I plotted on how to buy a big ranch, and Sherryl obliged us by looking at the pictures we wanted to show her.
And I think Gramps & Gram just took it all in - you could see how proud they are of their family, and we are sure proud of the example they've set for us on how to have a lasting, loving and committed marriage.
