wally and norma

Last weekend, Lonnie and I went to California for my grandfather's 90th birthday party. My grandparents have 5 children, 15 grandchildren, and a growing number of great grandchildren. I have always loved my paternal grandparents. They are kind and loving to each other and everyone around them.

My family gathered photos of my grandparents' life, and I put them together into a slide show. It was great to see photos of them as children, then as young couple very much in love, through the years raising their children, going on a mission, exploring the Holy Land, and loving their grandchildren.

They are wonderful amazing people. Through the course of our lives, Lonnie and I hope to contribute to our family in much the same way as my Grandpa and Grandma Allred have.



  1. As a Ute fan, my favorite picture is the one of Wally in his Ute attire. Go Utes!


  2. These need to be part of a book! I love them. You should write a fairytale and illustrate it with these.

  3. That is a good idea. They are a bit of a fairytale themsleves....still in love, after so many years.
