Four generations

Todd's maternal grandma is turning 88 in a few days. She lives in Idaho so we decided to stop by and see her on our way back from Yellowstone.

While we were there we got to see Marie one of Todd's cousins who we hadn't seen in six years, since they moved to Arizona and we moved to Texas. The kids loved playing with Marie's kids and great-grandma's cats.

Great grandma Loveland has a sign above the bay window where her cats like to nap that says "Cats are like potato chips, you can't just have one." She has four, although we only saw two. I think the other two were scared by the rambunctious kids that invaded their turf.

While visiting we took the opportunity to take a few four generation pictures with the kids.

She is such a sharp lady. Every night she prays for all of her grandchildren and great grandchildren by name - and she has more than 50! And now she's expecting her first great-great grandchild.

It's great that you guys got to see her. I know the girls loved visiting their great grandma.

What a special opportunity!! I'm sure those pictures will become true treasures through the years. Sounds like you had a wonderful vacation!

It was great to see you guys as well! It is hard to believe that it had been that long since we saw each other. I wish we could have spent a little more time visiting- maybe we should coordinate our visits up north a little better! =)
