It's the freakin' weekend

The grandparentals were in town for this:

So there has been much craziness for the past few days. Not the least of which was when my mom broke one ankle and sprained the other which pushed back Flashback Friday another week. (Unless you count reminiscing about the last time she sprained her ankle at the Heaton Ranch '91 Reunion.)

But even with all the drama, it's always fun when grandpa comes, when grand[ma] comes. Hooray!

Some choice quotes of the weekend:
  • "A day without a nap is a wasted day." -Grandpa
  • "I don't like other people driving my car because they let people get in front. I see no reason why anyone should pass me." -Grandpa
  • "Feña's fondest dream is to be related to Ward." -Taylor

That last one came when, after talking for 5 minutes with our neighbors two doors down, grandpa discovered his dad and our neighbors' great grandma were siblings. That makes us their 3rd cousins.

This pleases everyone to no end.

OH my goodness! I'm sorry to your Mom! I like your Grandpa's philosophies. He sounds like a very wise man. And La is so pretty! Yay for families!

I so agree on the nap thing. And so sorry about the whole sickness thing. I've had pneumonia and it STINKS!!!
