When we were in Thatcher in June, Jason and his dad replaced the brake caliper in Jason's car. Since I have no business working with them (I don't even know what a caliper is), I took pictures instead.
Jason and his dad spent many hours together a few years ago when they completely replaced the engine in Jason's car. Their relationship had been a little rocky before this, and through the process, they were able to repair more than the engine.
It's been a blessing to have a father in-law mechanic who can teach my husband the ins and outs of car repair. We've certainly saved a lot of money thanks to these two men.
Jason's dad married Sharon around Christmas. We're so glad she's in the family now! She is a kind, kind woman who can still laugh at herself. Essentially, my favorite kind of person. Even better, she has made Jason's dad a very happy man. He lights up when she's in the room. They just laugh and laugh together while Jason and I roll our eyes together at the newlyweds.
While the boys worked on the car, Sharon and I sat under the big pecan tree. The same pecan tree Jason's grandma sat under when she moved to Safford nearly 40 years ago. Sharon and I talked about life as we snacked on pecans and enjoyed the shade of the trees weighty branches. Una the dog dutifully stayed by Sharon's side.
They are adorable. Enough said.
