A Surprise Visit!
We got word yesterday that GrandMama and GrandPapa Jones were headed up to the Cities for a 'play day' with their good friends Jana and Jerry. They met us at the house and, after a quick stop at Trader Joe's, we all headed to Punch pizza on Grand Ave. It was really crowded, but we had a delicious meal that Alex entertained us all through.
We pushed back her normal bedtime even more with an impromptu trip to Grand Ole Creamery, ice cream and jukebox playing with GrandPapa.
Alex was obviously exhausted by the time we loaded her up to go home, but she fought off sleep by telling us all about the 'owl lady' (Jana) and her desire to go to Iowa. I think her exact words were "Alex go Iowa. Right now!"
