I told you all that I had a busy weekend. Kayla and Jasper came on Friday evening in time for supper. During the day I had made lasagna. I told you about that HERE.
Our fun continued into Saturday. Kalissa had worked the overnight on Friday and fieldwork has started for Craig so Carver and Gannon ended up at my house to have a cousin Jasper visit. I caught him out under the swing set fixing with his tools. Boy, he loves tools.
Kayla has made a goal for herself to run a half marathon. She runs during the week and then on the weekend does a big run on Saturdays. She asked if I could watch Jasper and she’d do her big run. This run was 11 miles. She drove to Decorah to run the Trout Run Trail. It’s a nice path. She hadn’t run that far before but she did it…
To celebrate we took her to… Luna Valley Pizza farm. I’ve told you about it before. Here she is eating her well deserved pizza.
Kayla had many things to celebrate after her run. Fastest mile…fastest 5K and fastest 10K…all that with some hills. I’m so proud of her. This has been a long term goal for her and she’s rocking it!
After that, we stopped and got some craft beers for a little taste testing when we got home. Kayla and Karl both love craft beer tasting. I don’t mind…not the crazy things but the average things.
Karl and I having the Pig and Fig pizza…Kayla is having cheese.
The time went by all too quickly. I didn’t take many pictures…it was a “live the moment” couple of days.
As Kayla was leaving I said, “Wait, I need a Jasper picture!”
I know I’m his grandma so I’m biased but he is a little sweetie. Many people have so many bad things to say about covid. Not me. I’m am looking for the blessings it has brought. I know I wouldn’t have seen Jasper as much…I wouldn’t have face timed as much. I would know him as well as I do. Kayla would have been at school more. They would have been on more vacations and I wouldn’t have seen him as much.
He is so smiley and so happy. Some people make the comment that someone “smiles with their eyes”. This guy, he smiles with his whole body.
There was a point for a bit that Kayla and Spencer wondered if they would have kids. It didn’t seem like something they wanted. As they became Aunts and Uncles and their friends had kids, they changed their minds. I’m so glad they did as I would have hated to miss out on this little guy.
I can’t thank Kayla enough for the work she does to make sure he knows his Grandma Jo.
