Happy Birthday Papa Wood!!!
This is a special little post to commemorate my husband's dad's birthday!
Landon told me his favorite cake was Angel Food Cake so we had our own little
celebration today with our own cake!
This was my first Angel Food Cake I've ever made & I of course took photos like usual...
plus, i needed a texture... and feathers were handy.
In the last four years Landon has lost both his mother & father to cancer. Last year we were
finally able to design, create and get their headstone made for their graves. At the end of last
summer we went up to Canada to deliver it, and the trip turned out to be quite the adventure!!
We hauled the tombstone all the way from Rexburg, ID to Cardston, AB Canada! And of course,
Landon stopped several/many, i mean innumerable times along the way for me to take
photos... Canada is the most green and clean place ever, I just loved it!!
We wanted to post this last summer but we saved it for today
(being that it's his dad's birthday).
Here's us at one of our stops, Landon on the left & headstone on the right.
All tied up and ready for Canada.
Of course the most important part of the trip was getting the headstone put in and finally giving his parent's a proper grave site.
we designed the tombstone together and the highlight was the porcelain photo of their wedding engagement picture. The sepia tones went perfect with the red stone... which we know Mom would of loved. :)
aren't they just the cutest lil couple?!
Back in 1972
Before we headed over to the site to say our final goodbyes,
we gathered a bunch of wildflowers and made just the prettiest lil bouquet for them.
Landon took most of these photos and i wanted to put this one up!
We sure miss you two!
