Grandmas and Grandpas
I'm so glad Froggy has all four grandparents and two great-grandmas. Here are few pics of our mini-vacation to Santa Barbara. We visited the mission, had yummy clam chowder in a bread bowl (my favorite) and did some antique shopping in Carpinteria. Dad waited outside the shops with the baby. They were both very patient.
My grandparents were such a huge part of my childhood. Climbing silos and teasing the pigs on the farm and taking the bus to downtown with Grammy for a fancy shmancy lunch at Younkers Tea Room are some of my fondest memories. I can't wait for the day when FroggyDaddy and I can drop Little Froggy off at the Grandparents and get away for a nice weekend. She has a whole lifetime of memories to create with her grandparents, building snowmen in Iowa and snorkling in California.
What did you learn about life from your grandparents? How did their influence change you?
