Yesterday morning we went to the Denver Deaf Nation Expo. Gma has been deaf since she was little, as is majority of her siblings. The expo was fun and interesting. Although, not a lot for me to do. I do know some ASL (American Sign Language) as when I was in HS a friend of mine dated a guy who was deaf. I quickly learned the alphabet and some words and instantly became fascinated with it. Then once in college I decided to take Sign Language, as my dream profession was to became a deaf counselor in the school system for kids. To this day it's something I find very intriguing and interesting and it's a joy for me to (try and) communicate with my future Gma in-law in this language.
After our visit at the deaf expo we headed to a local nursery. Chris, Mary, and Bobbie Jo all have a green thumb. This is something I don't have. I have had my house for six years and have treated my small backyard with absolutely no TLC. Thankfully Chris has spent these Springtime months giving some love to the backyard, and a nursery is exactly Mary and Bobbie Jo's idea of quality shopping. So we spent 2+ hours at this nursery looking at just about everything, and doing lots of shopping.

After the busy day we headed out to a nice dinner. Gma had a margarita and a half, and who knows the last time this young 83 year old has had that much to drink! Needless to say she became the entertainment! It was such a fun dinner!
Cheers to G-Ma! (isn't she the cutest thing you've ever seen?!)
They worked super hard!
