Flashback Friday: 1970

Yep, look to the right - that's my 19-year old mother, playing FOOTBALL in a CREEK while PREGNANT with me! Now there's something you don't see every day!

On the left, my incredibly beautiful and very young mom with me, just home from the hospital in SLC. Life has just begun. Do you think at this point she thought she'd be a mom of 8 children? I seriously doubt it.

I love it! I'm sure she had no idea 7 more were to follow! She, along with your dad have done a great job! Now I want to peek inside of the little yellow blanket and see baby Cole!

That post made me miss her! I bet you miss her bunches. She is a super lady. I feel lucky just to know her.
It also made me miss you! It was funny looking at that picture when you were here and having you say..."Mom, are you straddling a river playing football when you are pregnant with me????"
Hilarious stuff.

Your mom has nice legs. Are you the first born?

Yes, I am the first born. And my mom STILL has great legs! (She was actually voted "best legs" in high school, so I thought it was funny that you mentioned that, Krista!)
