|The view from my Grandparents front window|
The grandparents may have loved that we took the longest way to get there. They also loved that Chad ordered 3 pancakes at the Ranch Hand. They loved showing off their beautiful home and Susie the vacuum. They loved taking us all on their house tour, showing us all the homes they had lived in. Grandpa gave us the extended tour that included a few more houses, property and the Mill. They loved that they boys were able to help out Uncle Stephen and get some yard work done and they loved that the girls could help with some handwriting. Grandpa loved teaching the boys to play snooker.
Ash and I loved wandering through Kings, watching the boys reaction as we passed cows, sheep and llamas on the way into town, and seeing the jankiest house with the junkiest trailer people ever... ever. We found out later that this was on the grandparents home tour, in fact grandpa found their landlord dead there. It was kinda fitting. Patrick almost died when we pulled up and stopped outside this
We rounded out the trip with games of Munchkin, lots of sushi on the way home, and Chad and I almost running out of gas in the middle of nowhere in the middle of Utah. Next time we'll have to go up in the summer so we can take Grandpa out to the lake with us and wait 4 years to eat at the Bear Cave. I never did get my raspberry shake so we'll be back ;)
