We headed to Portland on New Years Day for a family get together and we went a few hours early so that we spend some time at the grandparents house. Grandpa smiled as he told the kids his "rock" story. Back when Dustin was a little boy, his dad and grandpa took him up to Mt. Hood to do some fishing when they found the cantelope looking rock. Grandpa thinks that it is a thunder egg, full of crystal, but has never cracked it open to find out. I suppose it's because he doesn't want to be disappointed if it's just a common rock. David is frustrated by the whole thing and keeps asking why grandpa doesn't just find out what's inside it. Dustin has assured him that someday he hopes to inherit "the rock" and they will crack it open together.
The girls played with grandma's vintage Barbies. They were so awesome, I loved all the old clothes and shoes. Normally, Grace doesn't usually play with dolls anymore, but you couldn't resist getting your hands on these beauties.
We were all surprised to see that they had 3 little chiahuahua puppies down the hall in the spare room. Perfect, one for each of them to hold.
We love grandma and grandpa so much and are looking forward to our next visit, which will hopefully not be too far in the future.
