Visitors with hugs

Our Great Nephews (the twins) and our Great Niece have been visiting their Grandparents.  They used to live next door a long time ago...when they were little.

The worked on bikes one day taking the best parts of bikes and putting them together.  The boys are helping shingle their grandpas (my other baby brothers) house.  They stop by on their bikes and give the best hugs.  We wish they still lived next door instead of in North Dakota because we miss them.

They are all getting so tall.  Aubrey needs to get her braces back on and several teeth pulled before she has yet another bone graft surgery this Fall.  This will be her 9th surgery since she was born. She is a trooper.

  22. I have grand nieces that I don’t think that I have ever met. I guess I saw them, a few when they were very young. Ohio, Kansas, and Washington state are distant places for us and the dad, my brother, is in California.
