a heritage...

In July we made a trip to California to celebrate Caleb's grandparents 65th wedding anniversary. 65 is a long time. I try and imagine what it would be like to celebrate 65 years with Caleb and realize he'd have to live to 95 for us to be married that long. 

They've given our family a gift that's hard to describe. They've persevered  when many have given up. They've taught us about 
love and sacrifice and family.
 I can't tell you how blessed I am to be able to call them mine.

The kids were just a little spoiled with attention....
look at the lipstick on those cheeks.

Caleb comes from a crazy Greek family...they're incredibly close and so fun to be around.

The siblings.

Their legacy...It's amazing to think how these two people have touched so many lives. 
(minus ten...some family members were unable to make it)

We love you. 

(This song makes me think of them...take a minute and listen to it.)
