As time goes by... and it sure goes by fast.

This weekend I went to St. George to see all my grandparents who all seen to think it is fun to get sick at the same time.
First my 95 year old grandma. She is having a lot of health problems among them is old age. At the beginning of last week we found out that she probably won't be around much longer. we all raced down there to maybe say our last goodbyes. It was a very sad weekend to think that she won't be around much longer. She has lost about 15 pounds in the last weeks, it is about a 1 pound a day. you can really can tell she is slowly going. but on the other hand, she has lived a great and full life. she shared lots of stories of her life and it was fun to hear them.


I love her so very much, everyone always tells me that I look just like her when she was my age.. the only difference is she is about half the size I am.. I think she it 5'2" and I stand about 5'11". it ended up being one big photo shot after another.

My dads parents also found out that they are not doing very well either. My grandma went to into surgery for breast cancer at the beginning of the week and my grandpa just found out that he has leukemia. We got to chat with them while we were down there. There was a lot of tears and laughs. I'm so grateful for the strength and love that they both have shown me. I didn't get any picture of them but it was still great to see them.

We also got to do a little shopping at the farmers market. Isn't my little boy getting so big. He was so cute with Great grandma.
All in all it was a good weekend if not a little bit sad.
