In the middle of November, Grandma came to visit. I left work a bit early on Thursday afternoon to go pick her up at the airport. Everything went really smoothly, I was able to find her and bring her back to the apartment no problem. Unfortunately, she picked one of the worst weeks as far as weather to visit. It wasn’t as cold as it was in Minnesota, but it was unusually chilly for Texas. It was between 30 and 40 degrees every day she was in town and then it went back up to the 60s and 70s right after she left.
Because of the weather, Grandma mostly wanted to stay indoors. Jenny cooked soup for us to stay warm. The only thing she wanted to do while she was in Dallas was to go see the arboretum. I don’t know how she heard about it, but it had over 15,000 pumpkins there and she really wanted to go check it out. On the weekend, I took her there and we took a walk through the 12 days of Christmas display and the pumpkin patch.
After we finished walking the pumpkin patch, we went out and checked out the Galleria mall and did some shopping. We also saw the world’s tallest indoor Christmas tree.
It was nice having Grandma in town for a few days, although it’s a shame that the weather wasn’t better while she was here. We did have a fun time, though!
