My mom and I took the Roc to Indiana at the end of August to visit my grandmother. We drove…
Until we were stopped by the police because of an accident and the helicopter that needed to land on the freeway.
I decided against the drink, and the Roc and I shared a dessert instead. I will always pick chocolate over alcohol. Even after spending 8 hours in the car.My grandmother lives in a small town and there isn’t too much to do at her house. This can spell disaster for a guy like the Roc so we took him to a nearby lake to wear him out. He will only smile once, so you had better catch it if you want a happy picture.
But don’t try to take too many pictures.
The Roc ended up watching movies, coloring, and playing with play dough at the house.
We saw lot more of this face as the weekend wore on,
and I tried to get him out of the house when I could. I even got him to go running (well, walk/run, with more walking than running) with me. We would go to the end of a dirt road and back, about 3.75 miles round trip. A couple times we caught a beautiful sunset.
In all we had a nice visit with my grandmother, aunt and uncle, and my aunt’s mother. It was nice to see my grandmother smile and spend time with her.
In the end I was ready to get back home and get started on the new school year. Back to structure, routine, and a little break each day (for me.) We just had to drive all the way home. I reminded my mom that I had a pair of ear plugs she could use…
