7 years ago today we were married. We’re not too much older now but looking back we were so young when we decided to start our family. I wouldn’t change it for the world.

A special moment with great-grandpa. These are the moments we cherish for our boys. We are very lucky to have my grandparents around to share their wisdom and love with the boys.
