A few weeks ago we took a family trip to Pinetop where Grandma Barbara and Grandpa Pop are spending the summer. It was a great quick getaway and wonderful to be able to spend that quality time with them.
The excitement started our first night there when, as I was putting Shyla to bed, Linda (perfectly sober, so matter what anyone tells you!) fell on Grandma's arm and her skin split open like a seem. After a rousing game of cards, I could tell Grandma was feeling nervous about it, even though Grandpa had bandaged it, so I called the paramedics. Upon looking at it, they agreed that she would need to go to the Emergency Room to have it taken care of, since she cannot be stitched. I waited up for them until they finally got home at about 1:45AM, but it was definitely the right choice.
We didn't take a lot of pictures because we mostly just hung-out. We took a lot of walks, went to a couple playgrounds, played tennis in the front yard, and spent some time at the rec center.
Grandma taught me and Stevie how to knit and I got to partake in the making of the every-so-important bycrackie bars.
It was a lot of fun and we hope Grandma and Grandpa got some rest after we left!
