My Grandmother passed away last Saturday, June 16th. We heard the news while we were in California with my brother and sisters. My mom was able to come home (Twin Falls, Idaho) from Guatemala to see my grandmother before she passed away. My mom had been there less than 24 hours before she was gone. But at least she was able to say good-bye. We came home from California and I left within a day to fly to Idaho to be there for the funeral service which was on Wednesday. My Grandmother was a beautiful lady. She was down to earth, outgoing, accepting and genuine. We will always remember her quick wit, optimistic attitude and many acts of kindness.
While we were in Idaho we enjoyed time with family and reminiscing. We have so many great memories on summer days on my grandparents farm in Idaho.

Picking up maple bars and apple fritters from Swen Mart.
My grandpa always woke up when the sun came up. He would go down to the local Swen Mart and pick up maple bars and apple fritters every morning. By the time we woke up he would have made a HUGE breakfast of the best scrambled eggs, bacon, toast and of course warmed up maple bars!
Feeding the cows!
We always enjoyed going out to the pasture and teasing the cows. My grandpa built tree houses out there and we would have a great time running through pastures to get to them.
