Meeting Cousins

On Sunday, we went up to Mesa to Nate's grandparents house. His grandpa found out he has cancer in his jaw and needed surgery but it was very dangerous considering how elderly he is. The surgery was set for Monday morning so he was having a blessing Sunday evening. A whole slew of family gathered at their house for the blessing. It was really lovely and afterwards, everyone sat around reminicing about touching moments ad funny stories (almost all about horses and farming).  It was really great seeing a bunch of family too. Nate's one brother and his family haven't seen Gabe yet because they live in Mesa, so that was fun for the cousins to meet Gabe. We love Nate's cousins and their babies too so it was great to get all the little cousins together. It took four tries to get seven littles ones to look at us!

Grandpa did just fine during surgery and they think they got all the cancer! Yay!
