miraculously, ledger did a fantastic job on the trip up to grand rapids. he doesnt always care for car rides, but he was sleeping or quietly amusing himself for the entire two hour trip! when we finally arrived, mema was quite pleased to see us, excited that she would get such a long weekend with her little ledger! that afternoon the three of us played and played. ledger loved to check out the toys that mema had for him, and he was endlessly fascinated by the dog ivy. it looks so different that the dog he's used to- this one has tons of floppy fur! when papa got home ledger was excited to see him too. it was kind of funny, ledger just seemed to stare at papa so intently. i wonder if he is trying to figure out why that guy looks so much like dad?..
