What a weekend we had. We received the news that our friend Jake had passed away on Tuesday of last week. Byron and I packed up the car and headed to Salt Lake last Wednesday evening. While in Salt Lake we were able to visit with Jami and her family, Brandon and his family and Barry and his family~ What fun! We attended Jake's viewing on Friday evening and his funeral on Saturday. After the funeral we drove up to Idaho to see my Mom, Step-Dad and Trevor's family. What a bunch of cuties! We had so much fun visiting with everyone. (Missed my Dad though.) The video and pictures say it all!
Upon returning we picked up the kids, (who by the way I am so proud of for being so good!) and spent the evening watching home videos.
We will miss Jake and treasure the memories that we had with him. Through it all it has once again confirmed how important everyday is and has reminded us to live every moment to it's fullest. Smile more, laugh more, love more. We hear it all the time but REALLY- they are words to live by!
