Week With Grandma and Grandpa Bybee

Tyce and I are home! Yesterday was a long day. Tyce and I got up at 7am and my grandparents drove us to the airport. We flew to Denver and Tyce was an angel (thank you Denise for the DVD players!). We land in Denver and find out that our 2 hour layover had turned into a 5 hour layover due to high winds in Denver. I was devastated. Tyce was tired, not feeling well, and bored. I was exhausted and just wanted to get home. After calling my parents and complaining, I decided to make the best of it. We went to McDonalds and had lunch. Then I went upstairs to the third floor where there's just big open space and found another girl who was my age with a boy Tyce's age! She had a long delay too so we ended up spending the time together which was nice. Tyce was an angel the entire layover but went to pieces when we were in line to board. He was beyond tired. As soon as we sat down on the plane he fell asleep. He slept for half the flight then woke up but was pretty good. We were both very excited to see daddy when we landed. We went to bed about 3am and are all very tired. I am babysitting Leah and Sarah today so no nap for me oday but tomorrow, you bet I'll be napping with Tyce! The twins are in Utah with my mother in law right now, it's weird being home without them but I know they're having tons of fun.

Anyways, Tyce and I had a fantastic week spending time with my grandparents. Here are some pics from the week...

My handsome grandpa, Tyce, and I ready for church... My mom bought them each a dog puppet and she sure got her moneys worth! They were attached to them all week...
Double chin Tycee....My grandparents have this awesome marble tub with a huge mirror above it. My sisters, cousins, and I all have many memories in that tub. Tyce loved it!My grandpa loves his naps on the most comfy couch ever!Friday night my grandma took me out to dinner. It was so fun!Tyce and my grandpa became best of friends. It was really cute. He said, "bampa Bybee" SO well! He always wanted to know where grandpa was and loved running to him and having grandpa throw him in the air. It was so fun to watch their interaction. Grandma and I took Tyce to the carousel and the park. He looked like this the entire time on the carousel, saying "WOW!" HahahaGrandpa, Tyce, and Grandma before church...My beautiful grandparents...Sunday we celebrated Olivia's 7th birthday and my grandma's 76th birthday at my parent's house...The only pic I could get of my beautiful mom who hates her picture taken...Livi carrying her bday cake to the table...My grandpa had a poem my grandma wrote in the 80's framed for her, he also gave her a really nice picture of him...Cute guy...Monday night my good friends Karen and Katie came over, it was SO good to see them! We laughed all night. My grandpa took Tyce with him to his office which gave me some quiet time to chat with my friends. I also went out with my friend Nicole for ice cream. :)

It was a wonderful week! It was so nice to be able to spend so much time with my grandparents. I was thoroughly spoiled by delicious meals, thanks grandma! It was so hard to say goodbye to them, I cried all through security. Maybe that's why they didn't ask about the benadryl and other liquids I had in my backpack, haha. Highlights of the trip included teaching them how to delete calls from their caller ID, teaching my grandma the difference between a computer and a modem, teaching my grandma how to use ctrl+alt+del, listening to the news on volume 85 (I swear I'm deaf now), my grandpa always scooping one scoop of hot cereal out of his bowl no matter how much grandma gives him, and their crazy eating schedule of eating breakfast at 2pm and dinner at 9pm. Anyways, sorry this is so long but I want to remember this fun week! I love you grandma and grandpa!

Ok. That last paragraph made me laugh so hard because that's EXACTLY what it's like!!!! hahaha Especially the volume part, "Now Joelle. Let us know if you can't hear it!" hahaha. I think my favorite picture was the one of Tyce and Grandpa sitting at the fireplace wearing almost the exact same thing. Grandpa looks like a little boy too, the way he's sitting! hahaha Thanks for the post Jenn. It made me homesick but thank you for it!!! Beautiful.

I was so glad to see your grandpa in a sweat suit because I always picture him like that, ha ha or in a suit for church. I also remember the bath tub very well-although I didn't love the mirror factor. I also remember eating "sugar cereal" on tv trays while watching movies, and playing salvanians in "the blue room"
