Visiting the Grandparents

Wednesday, 25 September 2013
I'm getting pretty excited to visit my grandparents in Missouri. We don't get to see each other very often because they no longer travel long distances and it is hard to take time out from conferences and school to visit. Finally, however, I have a plane ticket and will be flying there for a long weekend.

My grandfather refinishes antique furniture as a hobby so we are going to see some of his work in different shops. My grandmother also loves herbs and trying new dishes so we are going to cook together. I might also stop by the Pony Express National Museum. I remember going as a child but I thought it might be fun to see it again. Early news traveled by mail in the form of letters. Because I research news, I'm always interested in the history of the production of news.

We also have a new baby in the family! My sweet cousin Amanda and her husband Vic welcomed a new son into the world on Monday and we are going to visit them.

Hope you are having a great week.
