My G'pa is a very talented man, very humble, and so funny. We lived near him most of my life so I've been so lucky to be able to hear his stories and learn from him over the years.

I can't wait to take our kids their someday to show them his jersey hanging in the Marriott Center.

The night before the celebrations at BYU all the cousins went bowling, had shakes at Dairy Keen, and had a CSO (cousin sleep over). CSO's are a long standing tradition on this side of the family, it was so fun to be able to just relax and enjoy the evening with my family.

Oh yeah, the morning before the BYU celebration my Uncle John and I did the polar bear plunge into Deer Creek Lake, it was so fun...... and cold. So invigorating though, I loved it!
Although the babes didn't get to go, they gave G'pa a little shout out with this photo.
We missed you G'ma!
