Visiting Grandma

Over memorial Day weekend Reed and I went to visit Grandma Risenmay. We arrived Sunday in the late afternoon and had a relaxing evening playing 5 dice and watching the movie The Blind Side and then a couple hours of the tv show "I shouldn't be alive." It was nice to hang out with grandma. Monday morning I woke up and went out to the living room to find grandma awake and drinking her warm water. We sat and chatted and eventually Reed woke up and came out to the living room as well. Grandma was very worried that Reed did not want to go to the bathroom when he woke up. She asked him several times "dont you want to go to the bathroom? I always need to go to the bathroom when I wake up." Reed insisted that he didn't need to go to the bathroom. Grandma went to McDonalds to pick up breakfast burritos for us while Reed and I got ready for the day. Once we were done with breakfast and ready for the day we loaded things into the car to go decorate Grandpa's grave for Memorial day. I was amazed at the amount of decorations at the graveyard. There were several people there decorating graves. Grandma was so grateful that Reed and I were there to help her. She tried to help us, but said she found out how useless she was. We were happy to do the work while she directed us in what she wanted done. We then went back to grandmas house and played a few more rounds of 5 dice. Grandma was very tired so we decided to hit the road and try to beat the holiday traffic. We did not miss the traffic rush, but it was well worth it to be there with Grandma.


  1. I'm so glad you were there to help Grandma. I can't wait to see her in a few days (thanks for letting us take Will with us).

  2. I love your Grandma! She always remembered Nathan and I when she saw us and helped me not miss my own grandparents as much.
