Our Trip To Walmart -

On Thursday, J's parents came over for a visit. We went to dinner and then stopped at Walmart so Grandma could look for a pattern. I've been having a few contractions here and there and decided that I probably shouldn't walk the whole store. (Besides it wears me out being so pregnant!) I was terribly embarrassed riding in the wheelchair but decided to do it anyway. First of all, I hope I never have to really ride in one because J is a frightening driver! He had me doing wheelies and nearly crashing into posts. I know he was just playing around but I like having control of where I go! ;-) Anyway, here are a couple pictures of the evening.

YIKES! P trying to take me for a spin!

After Grandma found her pattern, we had to run over to the garden center. If you know her at all, you know that she LOVES gardening and looking at the plants. While we were there, we ran into a lady from my ward growing up. She nearly had heart failure thinking that there was something wrong with me. I felt like a nerd and just told her that I was lazy and didn't want to tire myself out. She laughed and told me she sometimes felt the same way. Anyway, I reassured her I was fine. I decided to call my mom when I got home to tell her about the experience. My fear was that someone else saw me and might start spreading rumors. I figured she'd want to hear it from me so she could put a stop to any rumors that might end up floating around.

Anyway, we enjoyed our evening with J's mom and dad. I really appreciate them. They are awesome in-laws and I enjoy spending time with them! One time, when P was maybe 12-14 months old, I was really sick and couldn't really take care of P. Grandma was working but Grandpa drove all the way from Soda and took me and P back to their home. He let me sleep and rest all day and took care of P. Now, if you know Grandpa, that is pretty amazing of him. He isn't much into holding kids and stuff. I was very grateful for his help and it shows me just what an amazing man he is!

I also love Grandma to pieces. She is a wonderful woman and I appreciate her for raising such a wonderful son! She is the best grandma and makes really good treats. A good portion of the grandchildren call her Grandma Sugar for that reason. P simply calls her Sugar. It is really cute to hear him talk about his Sugar and wanting to see her. He always gets very excited when he hears Sugar is coming to visit or when we are going to visit her. She is a very talented woman and I love her.

Thank you for being awesome in-laws! We all love you so much!
