I thought it would be fun to take my Grandma on a little road trip and I really enjoyed the pizza from George & Nick’s the other night, so I had my Dad meet up at my Grandma’s house this afternoon and then we all rode about 2 hours to Centerville, Iowa.
My Grandma is so funny, here were my favorite things she said:
“I hate the new headlights on cars these days, I really think the State Troopers should pull them over and just shoot out their lights and then give them a ticket!”
“When I am driving your Grandpa will say ‘how fast are you going?!’ When he’s driving I will say how slow are you going?!”
“I wish they’d just get rid of the internet. Did I say that right? Do they call it that still?”
“When you get to be my age, you don’t like to drive at night (starts laughing) and the rest of the people probably appreciate that!”
“Ryan, if you get pulled over for speeding just tell the State Trooper that you are taking your poor Grandma to the hospital and then I will act hurt” (she pretends to pass out for added fun)
I am so lucky to have her around!
I had some vacation to use up from last year (which I’m always surprised when I do) so I took today off. I didn’t really have anything planned, so the morning I went to PerkUp cafe with my Grandma Williams.
She is a hoot. I always enjoy her stories, which I will leave off of the internet.
In the evening, I went with Andrew on a little road trip to Centerville, Iowa’s famous pizza place, George & Nicks. We ended up getting the Mama Mia, which was green olives, sausage and pepperoni (I think).
The pizza was 4/5 – I thought everything about it was delicious, the only thing a little off was the crust.
I forgot to take any pics of the food, but I got a shot of the courthouse on the square.
I had a great time in Detroit seeing my friend Nick. The trip down there was a ten hour car ride, which I’m not really a fan of. Thankfully, it didn’t seem to last that long. The Sideris just bought a new (to them) house in the neighborhood that Henry Ford lived in. It is awesome on the inside, everything you’d want in an old house I suppose. We went to a few different places, but my favorite was just getting coffee and talking with Andrew and Nick.
I got the chance to travel with Austin to one of his photo gigs.
This meant a free road trip for me, some time to hang out with Austin and then 3 hours in a hammock while he shot the engagement pics. A successful time in my eyes.
