Family is Amazing!!!

These past few weeks Ryan and I have been able to see a lot of family. Two weekends ago my family threw a huge surprise party for my grandma's 80 birthday. She had no idea what was going on. To surprise her, all 4 of her children came, 15 of her 17 grandchildren came, and all 8 of her great-grandchildren came without her knowing anything. My parents and two Aunts took her out to dinner on her birthday and she thought that was her surprise. That next day everyone showed up before noon. Then we called my grandma and invited her over for lunch. When she came in the house everyone was waiting for her in the kitchen to surprise her. It was such a great day and so nice to see everyone. It has been a few years since we have all been together.

After the surprise we asked my grandma who just turned 80 what she wanted for her birthday and she said she wanted my dad to take her out for a ride on the four wheelers. SERIOUSLY!!! Coolest Grandma ever!!! She was a rockin' four wheeler babe. Here are the pictures of my Grandma riding the four wheeler. Happy Birthday Grandma!!!
This past weekend Ryan and I were able to go to our niece's baby blessing. Brynlee is such a sweet, amazing, beautiful baby girl. We were so happy we were able to go and share this experience with Ryan's side of the family. We were also able to see family members that we had not seen in a long time and I was able to meet a few more members of his extended family.
Unfortunately I was not able to get any pictures because I was to busy holding the baby but I will post some as soon as I can get some.
Family is such an amazing part of my life. They keep me heading in the right direction. I love my family so much and can't imagine my life without them. I have also married into such an amazing family. I love them with all of my heart and am so happy that they have accepted me into their family. I love being with family and am so sad when we have to leave. Family is such an important part of life and I am so glad that I have been able to start my family. I love my husband and my son so much. They are my rock and they make me want to be a better person. They support me and lift me up. My life is so much better because of them.
