You may think I am weird, but I LOVE to grill.  I don’t know if it is the reduced mess and clean-up or the actual grilling itself that enthralls me so much.  Actually, it is a combination of both.  And you can’t beat a fresh grilled hamburger for taste.  So, I was really bummed the other night when I tried to grill hamburgers and all I had were a little flame and little heat.  I had to finish the hamburgers in the microwave, because it was taking so long on the grill.

The best thing so far about the trip was spending the afternoon with Terry’s niece’s little girls.  The oldest (3 years old) was playing with Terry’s dad (Great Papa).  They were telling her that she had to brush her teeth or they would fall out.  Terry’s dad took his teeth out…the frozen look on her face was priceless!  She then proceeded to try to take out her own teeth!
