Hangin’ with Canyon Paul

dscn3532.jpgdscn3571.jpg We are most fortunate to have three terrific, exceptionally cute, intelligent and happy grandsons.  Sloan and Sean are our daughter Traci and son (in-law) Brandon’s sons and they live in Utah.  We are planning to spend a few days in June with them. 

This weekend we are taking care of our son Brad and daughter (in -law) Summer’s son Canyon Paul.  Canyon Paul is 10 months old and takes his middle name from Brad’s younger brother who we lost the last day of 1994.  Canyon is such a great kid and we are enjoying playing with him while Brad and Summer are in California for the weekend. 

Larry and Linda, Canyon’s other Nanny and Poppa are going to take care of him tonight and tomorrow and then we will take another shift tomorrow night and Tuesday.  It is sure fun but it is clear why God created us to have children when we are young!  This is hard work.  I marvel at Traci’s seemingly unlimited energy taking care of two little boys.  But we are enjoying our time with #3!

There is no greater truth, it seems to me, then the one that says, …children are a gift from the Lord.  Blessed is the family who has their quiver full of them.  Our grandparent quiver is not yet full, I don’t think, but we certainly are blessed.

    I remember when Traci was pregnant with Sloan and how happy you both were about it. When Sloan was born I watched as he brought so much love to your lives. Then Sean came along, here again, more love. Brad and Summer then had Canyon Paul and more love was added. It is so apparent how much love our Father knew you needed and the blessings he has given you both is so
    abundant. Thanking Him over and over for His love in giving you these wonderful little miracles that outshines all else.

    Love,

    Maggie

    Me too, Kasey! He is so stinkin cute! I can’t wait to see all three boys together. Canyon has a smile to rival his cousins. I don’t think there are any three better looking boys then your grandsons. I am glad you guys are having fun with him
