|Can you find my mom in these pictures? Hint: she's the one who looks like me! Bonus: Find my dad in the last picture.|
That night, I puked in my bed and got it all in my hair. (I have no idea why this is my grandpa's favorite memory of me but he tells it literally every time I call.) Even though they gave me a bath, I still wanted to go home.
So they drove me home, and when we got there, I had fallen back asleep; the next morning, I woke up and had no idea why I wasn't at their house.
|I'm pretty sure this center photo is the first time they met Matt.|
Grandma is also the best cook ever. The last time we visited, she made her special lemon meringue pie, which has a meringue crust, lemon filling, and homemade whipped cream topping.
|When I visit, we eat this for breakfast every day, and Matt is always horrified by it...but in a loving way!|
My grandma has been having some health issues of the past year; she and my family are all very practically-minded about aging, but it sucks. Of course it does.
This summer, I overheard my mom on the phone with my sister as they discussed plans to visit Cleveland. Apparently Mom's high school reunion is coming up and she still goes to these things, and Steph saw an opportunity to jump on board and visit my grandparents.
Of course I wanted in.
And then, of course, Matt wanted in.
So we're on our way to Cleveland this weekend to visit my grandparents! I can't wait. With the tropical storm out there in the Gulf, there's a chance we'll have a delayed or canceled flight. There are supposed to be tornados Friday night, too. So keep your fingers crossed for us, because if this trip falls through, I'm going to be very disappointed!
Tell me something about your grandparents!
When did you last travel "home"?
