a shout out to my beautiful movie star grandparents.

i went back to minneapolis/st. paul last weekend and always go and visit with my grandparents. my grandmother knows how much i love photos and she pulled these out of a drawer. i FREAKED OUT. they are so amazing and i am so lucky to have been able to scan these STUNNING photographs! so here they are, my grandfather Robert, and my grandmother Patricia:



| My Grandfather was in the Navy 1943-45 |

| My Grandmother looking cute as ever, always laughing |

| Here they are @ an Engineers Ball (My Grandpa worked as a Civil Engineer) |

| Grandpa was the captain of the basketball team in HS |

| I especially love this photograph - the look on Grandpa's face - he STILL makes that face. This is their engagement in 1947 |

i love them so very, very much. aren't families amazing? and isn't being able to capture a moment in time with photography the best EVER? yes indeedy. i am so lucky to have so much time with my grandparents.
