My Parents

Day Four of my Blog Challenge....My Parents ❤

These are my parents on their Wedding Day, 52 years ago next month.
They both grew up in Seattle, Washington.
 In big Catholic families, she is Irish he is Polish/Irish.
My parents raised five girls, have five wonderful son in laws and fifteen grandchildren.
They spend half the year in Arizona and half in Utah.
They both love to golf, read, travel, and enjoy their wine. 


It's not easy being parents of FIVE girls....can you imagine the drama.
I have amazing childhood memories of my Parents being their for each of us teaching us to be the best we can be. Instilling a good morals and values, incredible work ethic and loyalty, friendship.
I love my parents so much, I hope and pray they stay healthy and happy and in our lives for a long time to come.

What wonderful stories you must have with five girls in one house! I cannot imagine. I love everything your parents love....except the golf. But I do love it sometimes when it gets my husband out of the house!
