Best Vacation Done Gone

This is it. My final Grandma Tour 2005 post. Hard to believe this day has finally arrived.

Something I failed to mention earlier is that Matt is quite proud of the mulching he has been doing around his house.

Earlier I mentioned that I had eaten plates of Mexican food with Annie. The original purpose of that meeting, before Mexican food became involved, was to return books long ago lent to one another (like 10 months previous, more or less). At the end of our Mexican meeting, we exchanged compact discs. Here's a photo taken shortly after we returned each other's CDs, just a few days later. Annie and I really improved our lending, returning, and matching while I was in Utah.

Sunday afternoon Grandma made spaghetti for Andrew and me. I thought it'd be great to take a picture of her drinking from one of her famous smiley cups (they're famous to me, at least) and as I was preparing this shot Grandma said to Andrew, "Brigham is always taking the darnedest pictures with that camera!" So I learned my lesson, Grandma is just putting up with me.

Matt came over to hang out on Sunday afternoon too. It was the perfect time for the big Andrew vs. Matt Footrace they had been talking about for so long. Here we can see some pre-race stretching.

Here they're setting up the course for the big race (retrieving a stick was a portion of the exhilarating competition.)

So, now you'd expect pictures of the actual race, right? Well, I made a video of the race with my camera, which I have since accidentally erased, like a genius. But I do have post-race photos. Andrew won. But just barely. Check out this good sportsmanship.

Andrew walks it off.

This is the thing to do, after a race.

Andrew had to head back to Logan so he could wake up early and go bake bread. We took this photo, and Matt said "Uhm, let's take another one, but with your eyes opened wider."

I believe he was talking to me, but Andrew followed Matt's directions as well.

Here's Benny, Grandma's dog. You wouldn't believe the stuff Grandma says about him.

Saying goodbye. Whether or not she thinks my photos are the darnedest, I had a great time with Grandma and can't wait to see her again.

I've been told I look very George Michael (Bluth) in that photo. I can't say I disagree.

For crying out loud, my hand looks like a claw on Annie's shoulder. Relax, Brigham. Relax.
