Aaron, Emory and I went to Missouri for the beginning of Spring Break. We met Aaron's parents at his grandparents house. We all had such a good time and it was so good for Grandpa and Grandma to finally meet Emory. It was a little cold so we didn't get out and do too much, but Emory had a good time showing off for everyone inside where it was nice and warm. Emory also got to meet the sweet lady who lived down the road from where Aaron used to live. She had just celebrated her 90th birthday and still lives on her own. All the little old ladies and little old men at Grandpa and Grandma's church loved having a little one to keep them entertained. We had a great time, as always.
Grandpa had a bad accident on Wednesday (after we left on Tuesday). He was trying to pull a calf from a mama who was having trouble. The mama cow broke loose and knocked him over and then step on his chest. He has three broken ribs and a bruised lung. He spent several days in the hospital, but is now back home. We hope that he is doing ok, but he isn't the type to slow down so we hope he doesn't over do it.
To finish off the week, my mom came and stayed for a couple of days so that I could study for my orals exam (which I PASSED...YEA). While she was here we went to the zoo with Sarah, Grace, and Morgan (and Nana and Aunt Kim too). Emory didn't care too much for the animals that blended in, but she loved the giraffes, the water for the turtles, monkeys, and zebras. We look forward to many more trips to the zoo.
On friday Emory went home with my mom for a night. Emory was great and I was able to get A LOT done. I'm sure there will be many more meetings half-way. We had a great week and now we're ready for summer!
