Uncle Floyd and Aunt Helen

One of my favorite childhood memories is going to my Grandma Bowles' home. It wasn't really her home. She lived with my Uncle Floyd and Aunt Helen because of her health.

Floyd and Helen celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary. It was wonderful to see them again and remember how they always opened their home to us, making us feel like an extension of their own family. We never felt like an imposition, not when visiting years ago or this day. We came late, when the party was almost over and stayed well beyond when we should have gone home. It didn't matter to them. We were just an extension of the people who were already there.

One of the fun things besides celebrating with Floyd and Helen was that Paula happened to be able to come to Idaho Falls with us. The other two sisters live right here in good old Cache Valley with me, but Paula lives in Arizona. It seemed more complete to have her along.
