Weekend at Grandma's

We had a great weekend visiting Caleb's grandparents.  It was a lot of time in the car (1300 miles), but it was definitely worth it!  I had never seen anything like this - fields in every direction, flat as far as the eye could see.  We had a great time with Grandma and Grandpa; they put old records on and told us story after story. Two of my favorite moments were 1) when Grandma put a headdress from Paupa New Guinea on her head (!) and 2) when they were showing us old leather drink pouches they would drink from and shout olé! while at a bull fight in Colombia (can you imagine?!).  








What did you do this weekend?
