tour de grandmothers - round 1

First stop: West Columbia, TX - home of paternal grandmother
Population: 4255
Temperature: high 90s
Gas Station: Yes
McDonald's: Yes, but only within the last 5 years
Wifi Internet: non-existent if your aunt doesn't know the password

Sleeping Situation: Grim - note location of cuckoo clock to bedroom door.
Visit: Successful. Ate at Luby's Cafeteria. Talked. Ate again. Talked. Slept. Ate. Talked. Slept.

Funny Moment #1: Reading a magazine and having my grandmother ask me if I'd like to look at hers. Yes, the bosom is growing, but not to this extent.....yet.

Funny Moment #2: Having my grandmother surmise if her home-health nurse had indoor plumbing then continuing with telling her how to flush a toilet and to only use four squares of toilet paper.

Reality Check: Upon arrival, Grandma was on the floor in her closet leaning up against a file cabinet and had been for 4 hours. She had fallen and couldn't get up, but it wasn't as funny as in the commercial. Luckily, she has good bones, but for the 3 people it took to get her up, they might have strained a few muscles. Oh, and we're also lucky that she had bladder control during that time. There's always something to be thankful for, right?

Since this leg of the trip was so eventful, I thought I'd leave you with a sneak (my only one so far) of July's kit. This is made with the Lewis&Clark add-on. Plan to get this one. Trust me, you won't be disappointed.

First of all, you look lovely. Pregnancy is definitely agreeing with you.

Second, I love Grandma's limestone walls.

Looks like you all are having lots of fun and making lots of great memories :) Remember to rest when you can, and of course drink plenty of fluids (from Sonic if possible :)). That's all, love you both!
