this weekend, trev and i, along with audrey and braeden, went to to visit his grandparents up in mineola, texas. it was a long trip but very worth it. we left saturday morning and arrived around 3:30 PM. granny and grandpa were overjoyed that we had all come to visit. she had a yummy pot roast in the oven waiting on us! they are the sweetest people, and they really make me miss my grandparents, but i am so thankful that i have had the chance to get to know them. they celebrated 63 years of marriage in september...amazing. i hope trev and i are that fortunate. sweet grandpa will turn 85 in december, and granny is doing very well at 80. she has a sharp memory! she shared numerous stories with us, and she knew all the exact dates. audrey recorded many of their stories so we will always have them. we took some pics, savored her wonderful home-cooking, and thoroughly enjoyed being with them. they offered us grandpa's rocking chair, a wooden one that his daddy used to rock him in, but it wouldn't fit in the jeep. one more good reason to go back again soon.
