memories

So I am here in Moses Lake. I love it here. I know I say that everytime. My mom and dad are getting ready to go on their mission. My dad has like 12 days left of work. It is really freaking me out. My parents are everything to me. It will be a really hard 18 months...that goodness it is 18 months and not 2 or 3 years. So because they are getting ready to leave my mom has been cleaning out and throwing out or storing everything. We had a whole bunch of pictures that I hadn't seen. Here are a few.
Me sam, cali and Dad. At a daddy daughter campout. I totally remember this trip. I had so much fun. I love my sisters...and I am so lucky to have them be close to me in age.
Here I am lounging with whom I am pretty sure is my uncle David in my grandparents pool. Cali is in front doing her happy pose. I love this picture of Cali...I get to see this happy face...almost everyday. I also love david's short shorts and his old school soda.
Me and Zac...I hardly have any pictures of us together. Here I think I look so much like Rob.
Now this picture has always been one of my favorites...I used to stare at and think how pretty my parents were.

I love all the old pictures! It is always so much fun to go back and see how everyone looked. I can't believe how much samantha looks like that picture of your mom! You do have some pretty hot parents. No wonder you girls are so gorgeous!

I have always loved that picture of your parents. I can't believe your parents will be gone for eighteen months. It will be so strange going home next time, because I won't see them. Well...I can't wait for them to get back.

I also have always loved that picture of your parents. It's funny because I can totally see Rob in you and that first picture of Samantha looked like Kate. I agree with Myca, that picture of your mom Looked like Sam but I also saw you in there too. I've always thought your mom was so beautiful! That picture shows it well, but she's still just as gorgeous. Tell them good luck for me. You won't believe how many blessings will come to your family while they are on their mission. This is my parents third, it never gets easier, but we sure are blessed. Mine still have another year before they get home.

Youre parents were so darn good lookin! I mean your mom has always been beautiful, but your dad, dang! :)

What is with my dad's shorts? The sad part is he still tries to wear them that short...

Awesome pictures. I love finding old stuff like that of my parents. And they were good lookin! I agree with Myca, no wonder you have such a gorgeous family!

What fun picture to look back on! I bet it feels weird to have you parents leaving for 18 months. Are they having someone house sit while they are gone? I am sure they will be missed terribly!

I can't believe how blond you are in the first picture! Cali's happy face is classic....love it...miss it....I get to see her for Thanksgiving, FINALLY!

I'm with Kacey, I always knew your mom was gorgeous, but your dad... Wow!

Sam DOES look like Kate in the first pic!
