The last weekend of July I took the kids down to Houston to visit my grandparents and my aunt and her family. Grandpa was recently diagnosed with two types of cancer and this was the first time we'd been to visit since the news. The "C" word is very difficult for us, having lost my dad -their son- to a 4 year battle in 2001. Grandpa was in great spirits and, according to Grandma, had more energy the past few days than she had noticed for the past several months. It does my heart a world of good to be with Grandma and Grandpa, Aunt Carol, Uncle Russ, Bailey and Rem. I always feel comforted and at peace when I get to stay at Grandma and Grandpa's house.
Here are some treasured pictures from our wonderful visit.
