Visit from Grandmom and Grandaddy!!

On their quest to travel across the Western states Grandmom and Grandaddy made a quick pit stop at our little place in Provo. As you can imagine the visit was eventful and ranged from absolutely boggling the mind of a poor Olive Garden waitress over the soup and salad combo and a seperate soup and salad which they adamantly watching Grandmom stagger around our apartment in the dark in search of her purse. While here they helped a little with the home decorations (Grandmom) by insisting we hang our homemade painting. Grandaddy watched and approved of the picture placement between conversations about the insurance business with Ryan. Since hanging the painting Ryan had the brilliant idea of drawing more attention to it by adding a little accent light. Here is the finished product; Thanks Grandmom and Grandaddy!!

They have a long journey ahead of them and they are prepared for the trek to say the least. Between about two dozen maps all marked with multiple highlighters and the various mapquests they have printed off it would be a miracle if they did not get to each and every stop at precisely the planned time. It was a blast having them stay with us. Their visit would not have been complete without a visit to the Garden here at Stanford place.

Great job on the painting!!! You could probably start selling more of them on ebay:)

I always loved that painting. I'm glad you hung it up. It's nice to have artwork on the wall, and I can't wait to move into our apartment and decorate! You should make us a painting!! ya
