There were movies and imaginary adventures in the basement, and one day we went swimming at Laura's parents pool. This was Amirah's first time swimming and she wasn't exactly thrilled, but the other kids couldn't get enough of the diving board and even Richard can't pass up the chance to do some crazy dives.
We followed up the parade with lunch at Taco Bell, because we were hungry and it was the first place we found and Richard had been craving Taco Bell for two years.
We stayed at Grandma and Grandpa Bird's house in Idaho Falls, we ate Grandma's delicious cooking, played Oh Heck and enjoyed countless of their hugs. Visiting Grandpa and Grandma Wray was both enjoyable and painful, Grandma's dementia has made it impossible for her to remember any of us, but she enjoyed the kid's company anyway, and we had a nice time chatting with Grandpa. His dry sense of humor is always good for some good laughs.
