These pictures aren't the best, you can't see most of the people, but we didn't want to be the giddy girls from Logan snapping pictures of all the LA'ers. It was fun to have this experience and I truly hope the girl that will be working with us changes her life around!
Saturday my wonderful dad and I went to Rexburg to install some blinds my aunt had purchased from my work. It was so much fun to talk with my dad on the way up and back, it is rare that we get six hours of pure daddy daughter bonding time and I quite enjoyed it! It was also wonderful to see my aunt and grandparents.
When we were at my grandparents' house chatting in the living room, we heard a snap come from the kitchen. My grandma stopped mid sentence and said, "That was a mouse trap!" For those of you who don't know my grandma, she is completely and utterly afraid of mice. My childhood is filled with memories of people hiding fake mice in places where she would find them and hearing a shriek moments later. My dad went into the kitchen to investigate and sure enough they had a mouse. My grandpa sat there grinning for a little bit and finally said, "You think I ought to tell her?" My grandma insisted and my grandpa recounted the story of seeing a mouse out of the corner of his eye a few days earlier. He wasn't sure if it was a mouse or just a black spot in his eye, but he didn't want to deal with my grandma getting him out of bed to go and get stuff for her and he didn't want to deal with her nerves for months! He snuck out of bed while she was sleeping that night and set all the traps to catch the mouse. It was so endearing to see the tenderness in their relationship as he told this story. I was laughing so hard about the whole situation. You really won't appreciate this as much unless you know my grandparents, so this story is for you family! You know g-ma is still fretting about this.
Yup... that's right, I have a picture of a dead mouse on my blog.
