The biggest event of our week came as a surprise at the end. After hearing that my mom was making an impromptu trip to see my grandma, Norah and I decided to go, too! The best part was surprising them, though, and turning the corner into grandma’s room to see their shocked and happy faces.

We spent a fun few hours with Grandma watching skating on TV (makes me really miss cable!! And free time!!) and playing with Norah. I’ve always loved visiting Grandma with Norah, and seeing the way Grandma watches Norah play. It’s a long 2 hours of driving by myself with a baby, but it’s always so worth it.
