2 Months

Today it will be two months since my grandpa passed away. A couple of weeks ago I got a call from my cousin who informed me she wanted to take a trip to the mountains.

Background: Cousin and I spent almost all of our summers while growing up together at my grandparents house which was in Tehachapi. There are some memories there that we cherish to our cores.

Since both of our husbands have only been up there once, I jumped at the opportunity and started planning. While looking online for some info, I found the house that my grandfather built himself was up for sale. It was a sign. I scheduled an appointment to look at it and off we went.

When we were kids, we would go to "The Shack" to get lunch with Grandpa and it was always a huge treat. Afterwards we would take our leftovers to a lake and feed the ducks. So when we got into town, that was the first thing we did...go feed the ducks. Luckily my mom reminded me to pack some bread...

Is my cousin not the cutest pregnant lady ever?! She is so graceful, she makes it look easy!

Mr. Bumblebee set up the tripod and we took a group photo.
I really love that I am so close with my cousin, and recently, I have no idea what I would do without her.
This is a picture of the house. I won't post a photo of the whole house for privacy sake but it is beautiful. If it wasn't for our recent home purchase, I would have bought this place up. So many memories in there. It was so much fun to walk down the halls we used to run though with our husbands and explain to them our memories. I hope they will cherish these memories half as much as I know my cousin and I do.
We had some great talks out there and made even more memories. I won't lie, I got choked up a few times, but we are so lucky to have all these precious experiences and this visit made me realize how much my grandpa is still with me, everyday.
