Spontaneity is not my strong suit. I like routines. But, about a month and a half ago I decided to through that out the window...for just a week and I am so happy I did. Booked my tickets on a Thursday night and was off with Charlie in an airplane to Illinois by Saturday morning. We flew all day and by dinner time we were sitting on my grandparents door step to surprise them. It was the PERFECT surprise trip.
It was just Charlie and I so we really got a lot of time with my grandparents (and mom and brothers who were out there visiting as well). Catching fireflies, riding tractors, popsicles on the front porch and seeing "old" grandma and grandpa...Charlie talks about it often, and I hope it is something that he ALWAYS remembers! :)
