Were Headed NORTH....

Yup you heard me right....NORTH!!!!

Like I have mentioned below, Zach's grandfather isn't doing great...well he debated all weekend whether he wanted to go to PA or not; our original thinking was to leave next Thursday night (the 9th) so that we only missed one day of work...we would fly up there and come back Sunday--a short trip, but long enough for Zach to be with his grandfather some. Well; everything we looked at; leaving after 5pm, on Thursday was 500-600 a person (EEEKKK) so last night we decided he better go alone and us save the money...needless to say I couldn't sleep a wink, I was so sad that I wouldn't be able to be there for my husband and that he would have to go through this alone...

He called me bright and early and said he checked and if we leave in the morning on Thursday then it would only be around 280 a person...SO now I am having to ask off for an additional day...normally it's very easy to get off work (and I have PLENTLY of time) , however March is the end of our fiscal year and April is the beginning and it's EXTREMELY hard to get off then...well thankfully he said YES....

So next Thursday morning we will fly up to PA and come home Sunday...I can't tell you how happy Zach and I are...I know there will be tears, but being able to see Poppee means alot to us. When my grandpa passed away I was very fortunate that he was right down the road pretty much, I was able to get that one on one time with him...I was afraid Zach wouldn't be able too and I am SOOOO HAPPY that he will. This trip will mean alot to him, as well me...

Thank you for all the prayers...thank you for all the calls--texts--emails asking about his grandfather...I can not express how much it means to us!!!!

P.S. I looked at the forecast---it might snow one day, keep your fingers crossed for snow as I've only seen a teeny tiny bit of snow in my life and would love to see what it really looks like ;) haha!!!!

i've been reading your blog for a while, but i'm not sure if i've ever commented. i'm so glad you're going to get to go see poppee. my grandpa isn't doing well either, so i know how you guys feel. and, i know how important it is to see grandparents before they die. we weren't able to make it to the hospital before my husband's grandmother died, and i know how sad that made him. have a safe trip and a good visit!
