I have many good memories of growing up but one I remember was my first day in Jr. High. Mom was so worried about getting me up on time and accidentally woke me up about 2 hrs too early! Another memory was a time we went up by Pomerell ski area snow tubing and Dad flying down the hill through some trees right into the creek after just warning us not to go that way! Mom and Dad were great parents and always supportive of anything we did! I had an awesome childhood and always felt loved...even if I wasn't a "boy"!
12: Robert Douglas Boyd | Born January 15, 1963
13: Robert Douglas Boyd was born January 15th, 1963 in Twin Falls, Idaho. I grew up in Heyburn and attended Heyburn elementry school. One of my earliest memories was when I started kindergarten and rode the bus to school for the first time ever by myself. When it was time to go home, I rode the bus for hours because I didn't know where I lived and neither did the bus driver. Mother was very worried and angry at the bus driver for not bringing me home right after school. One day when I was little, I was being watched by Dad and Uncle Billy. After several hours of not being able to locate me, neighbors and friends started searching up and down the canal bank. Unbeknownst to everyone, I had simply fell asleep under an old abandoned car with my pet dog. Talk about worried parents! When I was about 5 years old, I was camping out in our basement and decided to make a little campfire. Unfortunately, I ran upstairs and exclaimed to mother that the "Forest" had caught on fire. Yes , I burnt up the entire basement of our home. I am sure I gave my parents a few of their gray hairs but I was always loved and spoiled for being the only son. I am sure I got away with alot more stuff than the girls!

34: Grandkids Memories... | Congratulations on 50 years!! I am very proud to have you as my grandparents! You have always been very supportive of everyone in the family. I like to think that I got some of my work ethic from Grandpa. He was always telling us kids to save our money and work hard. I have always looked up to both of you. You raised great kids (especially the oldest one!) and you have grandkids and great grandkids that love you! You always kept us laughing whenever we got together. There are so many great Grandpa-isms! Too many to choose from! Happy 50th Anniversary! I love you both! -Aubrie | Some of my favorite memories include going to Omaha to see grandma and grandpa, and now I love making trips to Pocatello to see them! There is never a dull moment there, and I love laughing at grandpa's funny sayings like, "You're crazier than hell Judy!" Ha! I love them SO much! Happy 50th! -Alyssa | I am so lucky to be able to call you my Grandparents. You have always been there for me in more ways than I can count. You have helped mold me into the person I am today. Words cannot express that gratitude I have for you both. You both have taught me so much through the years. Grandma, You have taught me to give unconditionally, to love without judgement, and to express my inner thoughts and feelings. Grandpa, you have taught me my work ethic, to be thoughtful of others, and you have taught me that what really counts is family. Thank you for the role you have both played in my life. I would not have been the same without you. Happy 50th Anniversary Grandma and Grandpa, I love you! Shantel
35: I''ve enjoyed living so close to Grandma and Grandpa these past couple years. I've especially enjoyed their 'Sunday Dinners' and Grandpa's famous salad and sliced cheese. Love ya!! -Austin | Best Grandparents in the World is an understatement. Whenever I'm asked who's my biggest hero? Without a doubt in my mind I always respond back quickly with my Grandparents. I have so many fond memories growing up with them. From Sunday dinners, to playing video games with Grandma. Some of my favorite quotes are Grandma's "Oh Gayyyyyyyle...pay attention to the road!" and Grandpa's famous salad making song. Congratulations of 50 years! Love you both so much! -Shanae AKA Goose.. | My favorite memory of Grandma and Grandpa is our weekly restaurant outings. Every week I would look forward to going out to eat with Grandma, Grandpa, Shantel, and Shanae to different restaurants where we would could bond and enjoy good food -Skyler | My favorite grandpa moment would have to be when Lexi and I were staying with grandma and grandpa and grandpa would get up before us (of course! who likes to get up at 530 in the morning!) and pour our cereal in a bowl and put a half a banana by it. By the time we got up the banana was brown and we wouldn't eat it. Well, on the last day we had our usual cereal and banana with a note "gone golfing... Eat your damn banana!). I love you grandpa and grandma! -Logan | I love going to see grandpa and grandma in Pocatello and all the fun stuff I get from Avon from grandma! Happy anniversary grandma and grandpa! -Lexi
36: Grandkids Memories Continued... | I can't say that I have one single favorite memory of Grandma and Grandpa, that's too difficult a task because I have too many. Whenever I think of the Gma and the Gpa Boyd, I am always taken back to when they lived in Nebraska. I visited them on a couple of occasions by myself because I loved being around them so much ( also, because Skyler and I were BFFs back then ). I distinctly remember how consistent Grandpa was, and still is today, with everything that he does. Up at 6:00, a little workout on his bike, exact same items for breakfast ( Grape Nuts, Fiber One, Grapefruit. Every. Day ), exact same lunch packed, check stocks on CNN, work, home, bed at 9:00...repeat. And who couldn't love Grandpa's laugh, so infectious and comforting. I love how Grandma is a night owl. I used to love staying up with her and playing Nintendo games into the wee hours of the morning. I mean come on, coolest Grandma ever award. We didn't do anything too extravagant when I visited them, but the memories that I have of my trips to Nebraska will always be some of my very fondest. I am a little embarrassed to say this, but every single time I left, whether it be on my solo trips, or when I came out with my family, I bawled like a little girl because I didn't want to leave that bad. One thing that I can say for certain is that it is very apparent how much they love each other, something that I started noticing at a young age. We all know that Grandpa would do anything for Grandma...anything. I LOVE them! -Bryson
37: One of my greatest memories of my grandparents is Grandpa always having cinnamon gum. I could always count on asking for cinnamon gum and getting it. I loved the smell of Grandma's coffee in the mornings when she came to visit. We love you, Grandma and Grandpa -Tyler | When I was a kid, grandpa used to take me to the store all the time and would buy me a York Peppermint Patty. For some reason that sticks out in my mind. And when we would come out and visit them in Omaha, grandma and I would stay up until 3 in the morning playing Aladdin on Nintendo!! -Aubrie | I remember one specific time while eating dinner over at Gma and Gpa's house. I was giving the blessing and thanked Grandpa for preparing the delicious dinner. As soon as the 'Amen' was said, Gma pointed out she actually had made the dinner. Since then, if I ever give the blessing, Gma jokingly informs me which one of them made dinner. Love you Guys!! -Randi | I remember one time when Gma and Gpa were visiting from Nebraska, we all went to Lava Hot Springs. Grandpa was completely dressed and was watching all the kids swim. All of a sudden he slipped and fell into the pool. After we made sure he was ok, we all had a good laugh! (What the Gayle??) Happy 50th! -Alex
