The boys love "Grandma Beth" no matter what... but since she met Jane she has become quite a bit cooler!
Jane loves reptiles, lizards and all things creepy crawly! So now Grandma Beth loves them and owns a TON of them! When we skype Bastian justs asks to see the lizards and snakes! It is like a virtual trip to the zoo!
During the visit Bastian had lots of questions for both of them and loved to ask questions and try to impress them with his knowledge of all things gross!
While they were here we were able to see:
Maymont... Where I had to take Jane down a horrifying flight of windy cobblestone steps in her wheel chair and I thought we were both going to die the whole time!
The National Zoo - Where Bastian, my mom and Jane all talked about lizards and had a blast!
and an amazing restaurant on the southside called Benny's BBQ. If you like BBQ- you have to check it out!
Here are some photos!
