It’s Been a LONG Week!
It’s been a week now since the big snowstorm last Monday night. There are still piles of snow in some of the parking lots around town but other than that things are pretty much back to normal. Gotta keep the family up to date on all our doings so this is pretty much a family post rather than a travel one. Got some cute videos though!!
We are still planning (weather permitting) to take off on a trip when we take the girls home this coming Saturday. Stay tuned for more actual Travels in Therapy.
We spent the latter part of last week shopping, cleaning, and fixing food for visitors on Saturday. John (Red) brought his daughter and our daughter’s girl down from Portland on Saturday. The other two girl cousins wanted to come over and visit since they are spending spring break in Florida and would not have another chance to see their cousins. Then John and Joni wanted to meet Joel’s wife so Joel and Annette came over with their four kids. It was a full house for sure! We had eight of the grandkids here.
It was great to have such a group and they all seemed to have fun and enjoy lunch. The new grand daughters fit right in and seemed to enjoy themselves too.
As always, I tried to entice Cailin to show me her latest tune on the piano. She was kinda having a bad day and made a couple of SMALL mistakes but I enjoyed it anyway. Uncle John was keeping rhythm on Cailin’s new guitar.
John and Grandma thought her song was fine but she was not happy with it. So John asked her to do it again. She was just having a frustrating music day! I guess she got tired of us bugging her because this is what we got the second time. Watch the devilish little grin on her face. John sure enjoyed this tune!!
Our daughter in Oregon City, Merry, got to pick out her new puppy on Saturday. His name is Ricky and he will be going home with Merry in about a week. Their other dog is Lucy so it should be a crazy twosome!! Lucy was supposed to be Merry’s service dog and was about 6 months into training when it was discovered she had hip dysplasia so that was the end of Lucy’s career as a service dog. Ricky comes with guaranteed hips and a 2 year health guaranty so maybe she will have better luck this time around.
Sunday we flat ran out of gas and did nothing more than we had to! Sure wish I had the energy I used to have. So today I took three grands (Anna, Bekah, and Corbin) out to pizza and miniature golfing. Not too hard on me and they seemed to have a good time.
So that’s about it today from the all the monkeys in the zoo. Hope you all are having a wonderful spring break – unless you already had it last week!!
