While on our trip to Utah we were able to spend Mother's day at my grandparents' wonderful home in Draper. This was the house I would visit a few times a year while growing up and it will always be one of my most favorite places on earth.
My grandparents had built this amazing home on a huge lot of land and I remember going out into my grandpa's garden and picking fresh fruits and veggies to snack on, there were even summer nights that all we would eat were ears and ears of corn for dinner. I remember watching my grandma cook and I loved spending time with her in the kitchen smelling all of the home cooked meals, cookies, and spices (thus began my love for cooking). It had been a while since we had visited my grandparents' home, so I was very happy to make the trip to Utah and spend Mother's Day afternoon there with my little family. This was also an awesome chance for my kids to spend time with their great-grandparents.
As I was editing through these shots, I couldn't help feel a little emotionally thankful for the fact that my kids get to have healthy living great-grandparents around. I can't believe how marvelous the legacy is that these two people have built together. I want to be just like them when I grow older, especially with a home like theirs that makes each individual that visits it feel so welcomed and at peace.
Its so awesome the Hudson got Grandma to go on the seesaw with him!
This is Sloan's favorite face to make lately with his lower lip hanging out.
The next two shots of my grandparents are both favorite, don't they look so good?! My Grandpa is still so handsome and my Grandma will always be so sweet and beautiful (notice the necklace she has on, yup, that's right, she has nine children)!
We let Hudson take our 5D for a while and he is becoming quite the photographer, he took the next three shots. I especially love the shot of Justin that he got, pretty good focusing!
I know this next shot is pretty random, but I caught it that same afternoon...again, I find myself in love with twiggy trees!
This was definitely a memorable afternoon with my grandparents! In September we will be visiting Justin's grandparent's and we can't wait, I can't believe my kids get to have 5 GREAT-grandparents!
