Palmer Family Tree...

Matt wanted me to share how proud he is of his parents genealogy efforts. His mom just completed one line all the way back to Adam and his dad has one line all the way back to 6 AD. He can now say that Heavenly Father is his 105th Great Grandfather.

His mom and dad are technically the record keepers but each of the kids do research on various lines and it all goes back to his mom or dad to record. His mom and dad now have almost 90,000 names in their family genealogy database.

We're looking forward to doing some of the temple work for all these people in the near future.

Live strong

For those that dont know I am a huge Lance Armstrong fan-I love what a great athlete he is and how he has overcome cancer and gives back so much. I have always had a soft spot for cancer surviers-I spent 10 years in oncology nursing. Then this year my grandmother died after a tough battle with cancer. She was incredably tough, she continued to work while recieving chemo and radiation untill the near end. Our whole family infact is hudge racing fans and follow the tour of california every year. We were so excited when we heard that the tour was coming to clovis-we had to be there! The pictures are of us cheering the riders on as they zipped past us at 40 mph! Amazing!

~ Flashback Friday ~

As Matt and I are approaching our 17th wedding anniversary, I thought it would be a great time to flash back to when we were just dating. We met at a Family Home Evening while attending the University Ward here in Fresno. I was just 20 and Matt was 23 at the time. Matt was eager to get married having just returned from his mission, but I was young and had my whole life ahead of me, and I wasn't ready to get married so quick. We dated for a couple of years before I finally accepted Matt's wedding proposal. He proposed while floating in a hot air balloon over the Napa Valley. It was so beautiful. We were married in the Oakland Temple on Valentines Day. Seventeen wonderful years later here we are blogging about it.
