an instant of life captured for eternity

Some weekends turn into fun family get togethers.  Carl’s parents decided to pop in over the weekend.  Now they don’t stay close to us at all, its a 5-6 hour drive to get to us, but when you really miss your sons you don’t care about that.

Our weekend was filled with chickens, a dog that was sporting the cone of shame, walks and of course family.  Photographs make memories last forever, so lets rather take a look at all my memories captured.
