To Grandmother’s House We Go (Went)


We aren’t going on a vacation this year.  With Derek’s new job, he doesn’t start accruing vacation time until this fall. 

So I’ve been hoping to plan a few short trips here and there this summer over the weekends instead, and this past weekend we went on our first trip to visit my grandmother! 

My grandma and new grandpa (my grandma got married again last year) live in this beautiful mountain town a few hours away from us, so we planned to drive out there and visit over Memorial Day weekend.  I’ve been wanting to visit her there, so I’m so glad we had a chance to go!

We had a great time!  We played games, watched movies, went out to eat, and enjoyed a walk by the river:


The three of us on our walk.


My grandma and new grandpa – aren’t they cute together?


  It was windy, so Wyatt wasn’t overly happy, but otherwise it was a good picture.


Wyatt loved their dog, but I think he was looking at the birds outside the window here.


“GG” and Wyatt!


Gramie, Wyatt, and me (it was obviously time for Wyatt’s nap).


One last shot on their porch before we left on Monday.

We had a wonderful time visiting with them, and I think we’re going to have to plan a trip again soon!  I’m hoping we can go in the fall sometime, because I think it would be gorgeous up there in the fall.

And hopefully this is just the first recap of a few little trips we’ll get to go on this summer.  I really want to make the most of it, and there are a lot of fun things to do around here too, so we have options!

It should be a fun summer!
