Proud Grandparents

Very proud grandparents Pete and Sandy LoDico couldn't wait to show everyone their three new grandchildren; from left to right: Lauren, Brayden and Ella. We can't help but wonder if the parents will ever get a chance to hold these little ones while Grandpa and Grandma are around :)
