Summer 2013 - Move to Liberty Lake

Summer 2013

Justin Grant,
This summer sure has been amazing and you
have been doing a lot of growing!  If someone
were to ask us what one of the greatest chapters
of our life is - our response would
be, "moving our family to Liberty Lake, WA!"
We live in a wonderful neighborhood, full of
energtic families and caring people.  The hot summer
weather and waking up every morning
to sunshine is so invigorating.  You
are running around all over the place
and curious about everything you see.
You absolutley love getting to spend so
much time with Gram and Aunt Jenelle.  You
love your crib and a good night sleep, but
when you're awake, it's go-time! We've had
many visitors this summer and look forward
to more friends and family coming to visit.
Thank you for being a major motivator
for making this move!  We love you very much,
Mom & Dad

August 18th
This was a very sad day for our
family.  We said good-bye to
our amazing Ranger.  He was
much more of a human than
a dog.  Ranger completed
our little family and lived to
make us happy.  When Justin & I
first met and fell in love, Ranger
was right there with us every
step of the way.  He was by our
sides when Justin proposed to me,
our wedding, and the day
we finally got to bring
our sweet baby boy home.  We
believe Ranger held on through the
move to our new home and made
sure we were happy & safe. 
He must now move on to
complete another family.
We love and miss you forever

We spread some of Rangers ashes at the farm,
in the same spot where Justin proposed to me -
one of my favorite places.

Ran into my elementary school counselor - Mrs Mayberry!

Such a great summer it has been.  As the trees
behind you begin to turn colors and as you continue
to grow & learn - mom & dad will always feel blessed
for all that we have.
