This morning Brad's mom, Grandma T, arrived for a visit!
We sat and talked for a bit, then Brad came home at lunch time to give us the car. After taking the red eye flight, Grandma was very tired. But the best way to beat jet lag is to acclimate to the time where you are at. So since it was 1pm, it's not bed time! We have to keep her awake until German bed time!
It was pouring rain so we decided to do something indoors. We went to the City Galerie, the American-style mall. We walked around and shopped for a good couple of hours. Grandma bought us some gifts which was very nice :) Lea got a new Top Model book, I got a sweater, Lainie got a purse she has had her eye on for weeks, and Brad got some fiction books. We stopped for a coffee and gelato. The gelato was really good! We had fun showing Grandma all the dogs at the mall. Still funny to me!
We came back home and Lainie and I went to pick up Brad from work. Then we went to our little local Italian restaurant, Dragone, for dinner. We love the pizza!
Now we are sitting home entertaining Grandma with pictures on Facebook to keep her awake as long as possible.
