The end of "a full and wonderful chapter of raising children in our home." - as their Mom put it. So it was very important to Mom and Dad to get all the kids back in one place to take a family portrait before the kids all head off to collage and grown up life the following week. Luckily they have their first grandchild living nearby to take the edge off any occasional nostalgic moments of kids living at home. It doesn't hurt that he is simply adorable and the whole family adores him. Now they can focus on being amazing grandparents as well as parents to all their big kids!
