Utah!! For Grandma's 90 Birthday!!

We went to Utah for my sweet Grandma Gunderson's 90th birthday! We drove up with my sister Cherise's family in their motor home and holy cow was that nice! No stopping to eat or change diapers! We watched movies and played games and even took very comfortable naps. So fun!
Daisy decided to get a little reading time in on our way up. Did I mention how awesome the motor home was? Not one time did either of my kids say, " I want out!"

This is my incredible Grandma Gunderson. She has this contagious laugh that draws you in. She's almost completely blind but still lives by herself and has a pot of fresh stew and hot bread every time we come to her house. She sends a birthday card to all of her grandchildren and great grandchildren every year (130 something people I think). Whenever we talk on the phone, I always get a little sting in my eye thinking that it could be the last time I hear that wonderful laugh of hers. I love and admire this woman so much for her incredible example of optimism and kindness. She has spunk too! We often quote her when we say, " If you've got it, flaunt it!" or " Oh, you can always sneak one in." ( talking about having children if your husband says no more!) How could you not love this woman!? I'm so blessed to have her!

Our family with Grandma Great!!!

Four generations of crazy spunky girls! :)
