70 Years in the Making

This past weekend we celebrated Richard's Grandparents 70 wedding Anniversary. They were married in 1938. Both Dick and LaPriel have college degrees. Both are in good health. They live alone and take care of one another. They have 3 kids, 13 grand kids and  22 great grand kids with 3 on the way. I think.... Plus all the spouses.

We had the best weekend. We stayed at a hotel in Pleasanton on Friday. We had a pizza/pool party and were able to start the catch up with the cousins. We know all of these cousins really well because of a  little thing called, "Cousin Council." Anyone who knew us in Ut, knows of Cousin Council.  Grandpa Palmer paid for us to go to dinner once a month with all of the Palmer cousins. 

Saturday was a big day of more swimming, a BBQ, bounce house, playing and chatting. You know how those Palmers like to talk! Saturday night we brought Dayne home and we went back to the hotel to swim and play. Crewe was a champ all weekend. He loved playing with everyone and swimming.

Sunday we all went to church together and just enjoyed being together.  We came home and had a small family dinner and then FINALLY celebrated Father's Day. We love our dads. I love Rich, he is a great dad. And this was a GReat Weekend.
