My Grandfather’s Birthday! {and a trip to the country}

First of all, today is Earth Day! Three years ago today we bought our very first piece of Earth… a house! Later this week I’ll show you some of the fun things we’ve been working on lately. πŸ™‚ But before that, I want to tell you guys about our weekend!Β On April 17th my grandfather turned 86. So this weekend we went out to “the country” where he lives with his wife, Carolin (my step-grandmother, but the good kind of step, not evil, haha! They got married on Valentine’s Day a few years ago!).
