Last week we spent a few days at Grandma's house! ...the "Grandma with the Orange Trees" :)
Grandma has lived here forever.... see. This wall is where we measure ourselves every year. FYI I haven't grown since 1995. :) If you snuggle up real close to your computer screen you can see how tall Sierra was in 2009, 2010, and 2011. :) You can also see Michaela in 2009 and my little brother Kevin from 1989. The wall has been around a while.
I'd take Grandma's house over Vienna or Rome any day. My Grandpa built it and it's on a huge piece of land surrounded by corn and watermelon fields. She has orange trees, lemon trees, plum trees... :) It's a fun place to explore and she always has a fridge full of cold drinks that we love to help ourselves to. :)
