Labor Day Weekend

Reid and I were able to take time off work to take a long weekend trip to visit friends and family in Little Rock. Not having seen Reid's brother, Trevor, since our wedding, it was a great time to reconnect as the newest addition to the Grandle family. We were also able to celebrate Reid's dad's birthday! We had a wonderful dinner of pasta and an Italian meat dish (my mother-in-law is an amazing cook).

I was able to spend some quality time with my mom which is always so special for both of us! She has had good reports during her last few doctor visits and continues to take the Alzheimer's medication that is slowing the dementia. After two months of treatments, my dad has completed his radiation treatments for prostate cancer. The effectiveness of the radiation has been extremely high in most patients and we are all hopeful! During treatments, dad continued to workout with his trainer, run the bleachers at War Memorial Stadium, and lunge the length of a football field! At 64 he is an inspiration of fitness and health, and I am so proud of his hard work.

God has truly blessed us with amazing parents!

Yay Mare! You joined the blogging community! I wish I would have known you were in town last weekend... I was too, and was quite bored on several occasions. It would have been nice to see you, even if it would have only been for 5 minutes! I love you... we need to talk soon!
