Visiting our Grandparents (April, 2021)


Hey everyone! I’m just popping in to tell you guys all about our trip to our grandparent’s house a couple of weeks ago. 😄 (I mentioned it briefly in THIS POST) 🙂 I showed y’all a few pictures, but I have a bunch more here for you guys!

Warning: This may be a long post, so get ready! XD

My grandparent’s live in the mountains of Coahuila, Mexico, about a days drive from our house. We left early in the morning (around 4:00 am, I think). And somehow I was actually able to doze on and off a bit between 5 and 6, which was nice! At around 7:30, we stopped at a burrito stand for breakfast. (If you know me, you know that’s my favorite part of any trip – getting burritos from one of those burrito stands on the side of the road.) Ok, maybe not my FAVORITE, but I love it. Don’t worry, being with my grandparents was much better.😉😂

Waiting for our burritos in Parral, Chihuahua 😁

After that, we settled down for our long journey, listening to the daring adventures of Ranger Bill along the way. (Ever since our friends, the Cooks, gave the audio drama to us, no trip has been complete without it!)😂

(Oh, and I forgot to mention, Lizzie brought her dog Jock. He actually did really well in the van.) 🙂

And this is how we entertain ourselves in the car… LOL! Poor dog! 🤣

After that, everyone had to try on the sunglasses. 😎

Bekah and I worked in our bullet journals for a while, despite the constant bumping and jostling of the car. (Mexican highways are so much bumpier than in the States) XD We didn’t end up doing for too long though, so we wouldn’t end up ruining our journals forever. 😂 But it was still fun!

Me. Taking a photo. In the gas station bathroom. Brilliant, I know! XD LOL.

After that, we spent the rest of our time reading, being weird and laughing too hard, singing to instrumental bluegrass hymns, being bored, and looking forward to getting there. 😀

I also found some neat photography opportunities at a couple of the gas stations. 😀 I really like how they turned out! 😀

My sister, Grace, tried taking a picture of me… The sun was so bright, it uh, didn’t exactly turn out…! 🤣 🤓 ☀️ So yeah, enjoy this super weird picture of me. 😉

Well, after driving for most of the day, we finally arrived!

The mountains around their house are so pretty!!! ❤️ ⛰

While there, my friend Carolina (Caro) came for a visit. It was so awesome to finally be here after being friends online for quite a while! 😀 We had a lot of fun together!!! 💕

Caro and I!

We took LOTS of pictures. I’m only showing you a few of them, haha!

Love this one!!!

And of course, we had to take at least 1 silly picture. Or 35. But I’ll save your guy’s sanity, and only show you one. 😉

Caro, Ruthie and I!
Abigail and I!

More fun pictures!

And more….!!! 😀 ❤

On Friday, we went to church, and my dad preached and led singing. 😄

After Church, we (SURPRISE) took even more pictures! Haha!

Caro and I! (well, our hands at least…!) Haha!

While we were there, my parent’s celebrated their 19th anniversary, and my Grandma, Aunt, Sisters and I set up a date night for them in the bedroom. 😀

I made this cards to put on their table. (And it was my first time using a real calligraphy pen, so that was super fun!) 😀

And yeah, I think that’s about it!

And, I just realized, I have no pictures with my grandpa, or grandpa! (How did that happen?!) 😲 Well, I love you very much Grandpa and Grandma, and I’m sorry I didn’t get pictures with you guys. To make up, I’ll just have to post this pictures from another 2019.

(I love you, Grandpa and Grandma!!) 💖

Hope you guys enjoyed the pictures. It was an awesome, super fun trip! ❤

  1. Are you sure Mexican highways are worse than US highways?? Some of the ones here could use some fixing. (Well, they just need to be filled in after they dig holes…😂) I enjoyed all the pictures! And taking pictures in a bathroom is something weird I’ve done before.
