Memories Made

We ventured up to Manistee yesterday. We had a day planned of family, friends, and our favorite pizza shop. One of the main stops on our day trip was to visit my 87 year old Grandma. Life has prevented us from getting up there lately. The visit with my Grandma was long overdue. The boys love going to visit Great Grandma, she has many special treasures, and Brady thinks it's neat she lives in a hotel (its an apartment(smile)).
We lived close to my Grandparents growing up, I spent much time at my Grandma's house. It is heart warming to know that my kids are getting to know this amazing lady.

Kaitlyn was in a great mood all day. She was so sleep deprived, but kept smiling and melting hearts all day long.

I think what I enjoy most about the time I spend with my Grandma are the stories she shares. Her memory is amazing. She brought out a box full of photos, it was full of pictures from the last 80+ years. Literally there was a picture of her as an infant with her father (Pop), and one of her meeting Bryce shortly after he was born in 2006. I truly believe that more memories were made yesterday and that these pictures on this post today will be in my photo box to share with my grandkids decades down the road. HOW COOL!

It was a beautiful day! I love sharing my kids, and I love making memories!


  1. What a great post! The pictures are perfect. I can't believe you got everyone to smile and look at the camera at the same time with no funny faces (must be partly due to Blair's increased photography skills ;)) and I can't believe how long and thick Katie's hair looks! Those are really good pictures of you too; you're hair is super cute!

  2. what a nice post. That's so great you were able to find time to go visit your Grandma at her hotel. :-) Beautiful pictures too, you will cherish them for a long time to come.

  3. Hey Jenee! What an amazing post! I miss your grandma! The times I was able to spend with her years ago were always so much fun! You took some amazing pictures with her as well! Everyone looks so happy! The boys are getting so big and Katie is just looking sweet as ever!! Can't wait to see you this summer!
