Visit with Grandma. Heavy PIP

So if some you were wondering my visit to my grandma went pretty well.  I, for the most part, didn't snap at BF which was good. We had the most beautiful weather driving up there (It is an 8 hour drive).  The first day was hard.  She didn't really remember much about me.  She knew I was a granddaughter but that was it.  She didn't remember that I had ever been to her house, even though I have been visiting her every summer since I was 5.  We had a nice time but it was difficult when she made comments like "You sure know your way around town."  Yes grandma, I do.  I had sort of 5 min cry before we went to see her the next day.  But I pulled myself together and the rest of the trip was really good.  The more time we spent with her the more she remembered, which was good.  We had 4 days of sun (unheard of in Oregon by the coast ;) It was nice because we stayed with my aunt and uncle so we got a break during the evening.  We did a lot of fun stuff with her so that was good.  We went hiking, beach combing, redwood viewing, and dancing.  She really likes BF and says he is a good man. :)  I agree.  Anyways here are some pictures.  I just want to thank you all for all the support and advice I got from you guys.  It made the trip so much easier.  It also helped me keep my perspective that BF was there to help me.  So thank you all so much.  You guys were great.  You deserve an award for being so awesome!

Anyways on to the pictures!

    Aw thanks Hope.  :)  Here they are:


    Me, BF, and Grandma.


    Me and my aunt and uncle's dog, Bo.  He is so cute!


    The sea was so awesome that day.  We were out at low tide collecting sand dollars :)

    Some nice lady stopped and took a picture for us after we spent 5 mins trying to have me take one from atop his shoulders. lol


    Arch Rock.  Does this remind anyone of the rock used in Pirates of the Car number 1?  You know when Jack sails by and there are skeletons hanging there?  Maybe I am crazy.
