And all because these two people fell in love....

It will be 50 years next February this special couple became one. And have sense they have be co-creator in building a wonderful legacy. A legacy filled both with love, and children. They are parents to 12 children, 48 grandchildren, (almost 50, under the age of 28), and 4 great grandchildren. (almost) They are currently living in CO amidst several of their children and grandchildren. Below are just a few pics taken while we were in CO visiting a few weeks ago. But only a "few" of the many cousins my children have.

Great grandma and grandpa Smith.
