The GREAT visit
Great Grandma Joy loves gardening...she used to come visit us in Seattle and would spend the entire week on her knees weeding my mom's flower beds. I used to think she was crazy but now that I've grown older, I actually enjoy gardening. (if you know my dad, insert his voice here with an English accent saying, "It'll be so fun to work in the garden together." Its a long story combined with an inside joke here, sorry)
We had so much fun talking about family history (my "new" addiction). Grandma seems to remember everything and everyone so I felt like I was lapping up every word, trying to remember it and make these people she was telling me about a part of my life.
In addition to gardening, we enjoyed reading books to Scotty, cooking together, watching Gil try to figure out our 3 remote TV, taking Scotty on a walk, and visiting my dentist.
I also took her to aerobics with me. Yes, my 80 year old Grandma (in July) came to 24 Hour Fitness and participated in my gym class. All the members in my class were so impressed :-). After our cool down & stretching, they now know why I'm so flexible. Its in the genes! It helps that she taught aerobics herself until she was 75 years old.
We love you GREATs!!! Thanks for coming! You owe us at least 10 more years! Keep it up!
Erika & Scotty
