family and favorite memories

Today was a special day! We made the trek down to the Bay Area to be there and support my brother,  Tyson. He was set apart and received the Melchizedek Priesthood today. It has been a long road for my little brother and there was not a dry eye in the room as my Dad set him apart today! There are awesome things in store for Tyson and his new wife, Gina.
Today is what life is all about. It is about supporting one another. Loving one another. Being there for one matter what! It was awesome to be there with my family today.
A favorite memory from today was sitting on the front porch with my Grandma Shore. The guys turned on the 49er game and that always seems to elevate the noise level by a few octaves. Grandma looked at me and said "lets sit out front!" While I do love family gatherings  with everyone there, it was so nice to have some one on one time with just my Grandma today. I wish I had thought to have someone snap a photo of us, sitting on the porch chatting, but I didn't. It is one of those memories that I will tuck into my own memory for the rest of my life. I love her so much! I am thankful for the love and time she invests in me and her entire family. I know, without a doubt that we all mean the world to her, as she does to us.
Here are a few of my favorite photos from today.
