We went to Eastern Oregon to visit family and introduce Evelyn to her Great Grandfather (Pop-Pop). Reuben had some last minute video jobs that came up and he decided it was best for him to stay behind. We missed him, but enjoyed the ride just us girls (me, my mom, and Evie).
It was so wonderful to see Evelyn with her Great Grandfather. It brings me back to when I was little playing in his lap. It was very bitter sweet to leave. I know I need to cherish every time I get to see him and every time Evelyn gets to spend time with him because we never know when it will be our last.
Another great moment was getting a 4 generation photo with Evelyn. Since my grandmother is no longer with us in person, we took a photo with my Grandfater, Evelyn’s Great-Grand Father. My mom has always called him Pop-Pop and I thought it was fitting for him for Evelyn too. Pop-Pop it is.
I love how outgoing my side of the family is. My Aunts and cousins loved being with Evie. Even though it was a short trip, we made some great memories. I look forward to spending more time with them!
Family is such a blessing. What would we ever do without them?
(PS more photos coming soon, my camera’s batteries died and I had to start using my aunts camera. She is sending me those photos soon)
