Surprise! Chicago

I'm home in Chicago! 

I didn't tell many people I was coming, mainly because I wanted to surprise my grandparents.  And last night when I made it to their house, boy were they surprised.  The looks on their faces were priceless as they jumped out of their seats, although I think I nearly gave my grandma a heart attack!  We spent the next hour or so talking/laughing and they haven't changed one bit.

Me:  Papou, your hair is getting really long in the back.
Him:  Honey.  I'm bald.  {As if he's breaking the hard truth to me}  Why do you think I have so many hats? 

His sarcasm and ability to joke about anything never seem to die down.  Of course, yaya offered us food every 3 and 1/2 minutes, while papou told us things like, "Really, who could put up with 42 years of that?" while referring to my grandmother, so matter-of-factly.  They are in their late 60's and late 80's, and I love that I can still can have a good time with them.

Boyfriend is here until Monday, and I'll be here for two weeks!  
First stops on my list: Target and a proper haircut.  I can't wait.
