From the time I was little I would look forward to summer. It was then that we would go visit my grandparents and my aunt Becky. As I got older these trips became even more enjoyable. I have loved the time I have been able to spend with them. In particular my aunt Beck (name change is due the fact that after 25 years she finally decided to tell me she hates Becky). She was more like a sister than an aunt. When she went to school at Ricks we would go stay the weekends with her. When we would go visit her in Colorado I loved to just ride around in the many "cool cars" she had. In fact she even let me drive on of these when I got my license. After high school I lived with her just before getting married. From that time I have truly loved every event, every trip and any amount of time I have had to spend. Beck and her husband Mike and their sweet children will always hold a special place. They have moved away and while I am immensely happy for them, I can't help but feel a little selfish in wishing they hadn't gone so far. Vegas is a much easier drive to make than Alaska.

I want you both to know how much we love you. How grateful I am to call you family. You will be missed.

I was able to make a quick trip to Vegas the weekend before they left. It was great! I got to visit with them, my grandparents and my mom.

Sweet little Chase

Dude...why ya gotta make me cry? How sweet you are. I will NEVER ever forget the feeling of awaiting your visits every summer and sometimes at different times throughout the year. You guys were the biggest light in my life and I still treasure the times we spent together. Now, that being said, we need to make more memories up here in the Great White North! I promise we won't be here forever - we'll be back...I made Mike promise. I love you Aimee - can't wait until you and James come up and see us!
