This past weekend we celebrated my Grandpa and Grandma Styll's 60th wedding anniversary! 60 years!!! That is amazing. My grandparents are such an amazing example to the family and it was such a joy to be able to celebrate them and their love this weekend! Most of the family from Tennessee flew out to be part of the celebration- they are always a blast! On Friday night my parents hosted a carne asada cookout with the whole family and Saturday the Fingals hosted the most fabulous prime rib dinner. It was such a treat. Everything was so delicious. I wish I would have taken more pictures but here are the few that were taken....the tall guy on the left is my cousin Justin, he is the best! Grandpa and Grandma can hardly wait to meet their great grand daughter. Grandpa was feeling her kick all night and was so cute with cleaning off my belly every time I spilled on it. So sweet. PS. Check out our belly picture. I'm sorry, we had to!!!

And then we sucked out the old volcano rock and put in this fire glass fr
