family weekend

Two thursdays ago Steve's mom came into town to finish getting the house ready for closing and also to celebrate Grandma Robinson's 80th birthday!

We had a most excellent dinner of steak, salt potatoes and asparagus... I could live on this meal for quite a while. Soooo tasty. In fact, now that I think about it, I've had steak an awful lot in the last week and a half. This girl's gone back to being a carnivore I guess :P

Here's Mom at dinner, her first one in our house!

The next night was friday, Grandma's official birthday and she wanted to go to Bill Gray's for a fish fry. Two nights of tastiness? Ok, who am I kidding, we eat good food almost every night :) There was about a year that went by for me of eating a lot of pizza and fast food or hardly anything at all, and now that we've settled it's easier to cook.

After the fish fry we went back to Grandma's house and had some delicious carrot cake... {yum}

Saturday Steve and I headed over to the old house to pick up a few things and he wanted to wash his car. *sniff sniff* last car washing there :(

Then Sunday we went to Macaroni Grill! That place is such fantastically amazing food I just can't even express how I feel about this place. This is Grandma and Uncle Dan (her twin brother) just after dinner.

We returned to her house for birthday cake after that

The whole weekend was a little deja vous for me. I was reminded of my Grandma Boss's 80th birthday TWENTY years ago! She would have been 100 this March. And then again, the whole day flashed me back to Grandma Boss's 88th birthday... not sure why, but it did. I also can't get over the fact that I have a grandma again :)

It's a terrific feeling... and I am constantly reminded just how much I miss my first grandparents... but makes me appreciate the ones I have now all the more :)

I guess I'm a little slow on the uptake but, until now I never knew that Karen was Steve's mom! very cool, and Grandma looks amazing for 80!
