This family weekend was also one for the books, as Curt's mother, Carol Windhorst, came to spend this special time with us. It was the first time all our children had met her, which is a story for another time. We had 27 people sleeping here under the same roof- party time at the McLaughlins! Also present were: Ama & Pops, cousin Christina Menzie, Uncle Matt & cousin Mattie, Uncle Mark, Aunt Tallie and cousins Luke, Hank & Venna; Aunt Brooke & cousins Briley & Katie; Uncle Brett, Aunt Emily, cousins Jonas, Makai, & Caysa. We are so grateful for the family support and the fact that at least one representative from each of my brother's families was present!
The night before the farewell sacrament meeting, Brayden's wish came true as most of us ventured to the Rose Bowl to see BYU vs UCLA. Disappointing that we lost, but a fun adventure with people that meant the most to us, and a memory forever stamped on Brayden's mind.
