Yesterday, they closed on this house where they have lived for 10 plus years and are headed to a new home. Don't worry they are still really close by (like 8 miles from their current house).
It dawned on me this morning that I should pay homage to this backyard that has been the backdrop of so many pictures of my family as we have grown and is also where so many of my favorite pictures have been taken. So, sit back and get ready to be bombarded with pictures!
Our very first picture in the backyard - our engagement picture.
Our first "family" picture (or soon to be family picture)
December 2011 - a really small baby Bekah with Grandad
December 2011 - My Sweet Shelby (before braces)
Not exactly sure when this was taken, but here is Baby Bekah in hammock
My "Sweet" Girls - Easter 2012
Flash Forward Some - My Littles with Gram

Wow, those kind of choked me up a bit. Seeing how it all started, watching my girls grow, and knowing there were so many other memories made in that backyard before me. (I might be crying right now) (I blame hormones)
I never imagined when I took that first engagement picture how many more family pictures would take place in that backyard and how our family would grow.
Thank you Backyard for providing us with so many memories. You will be missed! (oh yeah I did just do that - pretty cheesy, huh?)
So, here is to a new beginnings and new memories to be made!
