When we go visit grandpa it is always jammed packed with fun, scary stories and really good food. This time the boys lived in the pool, went jet skiing, cliff jumping, hiking, and even had a bon fire in his backyard! After 4 days of fun they are exhausted! We love our time at grandpas!!!!
As some of you might know Chris opened his own company called Gano Life this year and we are so excited for the new opportunity. In April they had their official launch here in California, so a good excuse to come home right? It was so fun and special since Chris was able to have most of his family there to support him. The first night they had a formal white and silver dinner that was so much fun. Finding a white dress was not so much fun, but to be able to have family there was so much fun. This is my sis in law Em and I ready to head out. Oh and my sis in law Megs was in charge of watching all 6 kiddos. Poor girl, but she is awesome and was alive when we got home!
Ready and waiting! This guy has been so excited for this day, and he is more than ready. He has been diligently preparing and we are so proud of him. We gave him the choice of whether he wanted to get baptized in the states or in Peru, and he pondered for a while and finally decided to get baptized in the states so he could have all his family around.
All dressed and ready to go!
We were so blessed to have such a wonderful group of people show up to share this special day!
My dad and Brock! We are so proud of the decision Brock has made to get baptized, he is such a wonderful boy!
My baby boy turned 8, I can hardly believe how fast time has flown by. I remember the day he was born like it was yesterday. Brock is such a wonderful son and brother. He is really growing up to be such sweet young man. He loves futbol, soccer, chess, karate, wii, and of course teasing his brothers! He loves school and is so responsible and helpful. And now he is getting baptized. We love our little man and feel so blessed to have him in our lives.
Brock started out his day with cinnamon rolls and orange juice! He was excited to be in California for his birthday for the first time so he could spend it with cousins.
His new scriptures!
Cake! We were still under construction in the house for his birthday so no homemade cakes!
Going in for the cut!
To celebrate this big guys day, he wanted to go camping and fishing with his dad, brother and cousins. So that is what they did, but man was it cold. I think they froze to death that night, and it rained to top off the cold. I kept asking him if he was sure this is what he wanted to do, but the answer was always yes. Thank heavens Cooper is still a lil guy so I went back and slept at my in laws, in a nice warm bed.
Unfortunately they did not catch anything after hours of patience, but it was a night to remember thats for sure. He had a blast so that is all that matters.
Chris and I met for the first time when we were fourteen at a chruch dance, and now we are married have 3 boys and just moved from Puerto Rico to Lima Peru. I know crazy!
We are loving life in Peru, especially the food and loving all the new adventures that life brings our way.
