30 days of 29, day 17: Espen meets Great Grandma Jo

Our Espen-themed weekend continues!
Whenever we're in St. George, we always visit Nick's grandma Jo. This visit was extra special because it was the first time that we introduced Espen to Grandma Jo, who is his oldest living relative at 100 years of age.

Grandma Jo enjoying meeting her youngest living relative (we think - Nick's family is enormous, and so it gets hard to keep track of all the great grandchildren and the great great grandchildren), and Espen enjoyed having an enthusiastic audience to watch him babble and kick his feet on the floor. In spite of the somewhat skeptical look on Espen's face in the picture, I think they liked each other. They were even a little bit in awe of each other, and spent a lot of time just looking at each other. How amazing that they span a century between them!

It was very important for Nick and I that Espen and his oldest great grandmother (all four are still with us!) got to spend some time together, and we hope they'll get to spend a lot more time together in the future. I never met any of my great grandparents, and have sometimes wondered about what they were like, so I'm happy that Espen has the chance to meet his.

Hopefully Espen will grow up to treasure this photo as much as we do.


  1. 100! how amazing! what a wonderful woman! precious picture!
