^^I was pretty pleased that they all wore their orange sweaters – – all my favorite boys.
^^My wonderful grandparents! They’re in their mid/late eighties and were eager for a Johnny Rocket’s lunch date after a morning at the temple. As we sit down in the booth Grandpa wanted to know if they had malts, and then turns to Grandma and says, “We should split a malt, like we used to when we were dating.” It was fun to hear a few stories of their courtship over lunch and I am so grateful for this example of commitment to marriage…sixty years and counting.
^^Caleb and Grandma – all seven of us were a little squished in that booth 🙂
^^Have you ever been to Johnny Rockets? Its one of my favorites, and was a post-temple tradition back in the day.
^^Their chocolate shakes are to die for.
^^My little brother is kinda cute.
