Matthew turns 18! Happy Birthday

Matthew 6-25-96

David saves the day!

On June 25, 1996, in Glendale, AZ, I was a month away from my due date. Taylor and Collin were taking swim lessons in our pool in the backyard.  Carson (2 years old) was in his high chair playing “war” with his food.  John was across the street at his friend Kyle’s house and Steven was at work.   I suddenly went into labor and knew I needed to get to the hospital. Luckily, David (17 years old) was at home that summer afternoon.  He helped me pack and find someone to watch the kids then drove me to the hospital.  He stayed with me until Steven could arrive from work, and then went back home to watch his little brothers.

Matthew was born a few hours later by C-Section.  His lungs were not fully developed and he had to stay in the hospital an extra week before he came home.  He was a welcome addition to the “Lund Brothers” and we all love him very much.  Happy Birthday sweetheart!

Spring Skiing

Waddup fam??

The boys and I had a great day on the slopes today. Virg, Koll and I all got season passes to the same ski resort this year, the Canyons, which was a lot of fun. It was worth every penny being able to spend Saturdays with my bros and shred it up on the slopes. We had a lot of fun days together, with a lot of great snow. Today wasn’t the greatest day as far as snow goes, but it was still a lot of fun.

You can see from these pics that there was a lot of uncovered areas. By the end of the day we were very wet and pretty muddy too.

After our adventure we stopped by Papa’s place to pay him a visit. It has been an absolute blessing having Papa here for the past few months. It has been so nice to be able to spend time with him and visit him a couple of times a week. Although I’m sorry he got hurt, I’m so glad that it happened here and that we’ve been able to spend so much time with him and get to know him better. When we got to his place today, he was in physical therapy. We decided to join him! As always he thought we were being a little too rambunctious and scruffling too much, but we had a lot of fun.

Coll and I having a little push up contest. I won of course.

Papa on his bike. He has been an absolute trooper through this whole thing. He is an incredible example of keeping a positive attitude. Every single nurse he deals with loves him because of how nice and grateful he is. He says please and thank you every single time. photo 3 (5) photo 4 (3)
