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.
