A Rockin' Good Time!!!


Dear Blog,

How often do you get to spend the weekend with your husband, mom, dad, grand father, grandmommy to be and a Volvo for an extended period of time? When your 77 year old grandfather gets remarried that's when!! And when he decides to get married in his hometown of Cumberland, Maryland!! (That's about a 7 hour trek including stops, etc from Charlotte, North Carolina). Here's how the non-stop PARTAY went down. Friday morning, Mumsy and Pere picked up Aaron and I from our Charlotte abode and we all happily piled in the family wagon. About 6 stops, several thousand calories and 8 hours later we arrived in Grantsville, Maryland. Since Grantsville is in the mountains it was only like 63.8 degrees when we got there, it felt great!! Larry Sprinkle could have warned us about the drastic temperature change, but we didn't hold that against him, we were having too great of time in the MD. I got to meet my new aunties and cousins, ate LOTS of food, laughed a lot with my parents and hubby, learned what a salt peter is, drove a lot, saw lots of Menonites, posed inappropriately with a statue, judged some of the Maryland people harshly, got yelled at by my dad, saw where my grand pap grew up and my parents honeymoon cottage.


Oh yeah, and saw Pops get married!!! I'm so happy for Pops and Grandmommy Ruth and I say that in all honesty and admiration. I thought I would only see Pops commit to never going again to Haywood Mall, to singing loudly at church, and always telling me about what prescriptions he's taking and how much they cost. What a lovely day to see him make a commitment to love and cherish my new Grandmommy. Cheers to the happy couple!!



xoxo,
Alison
