Today we went to lunch with (Zach's) Grandma Tippetts + it was lovely.

When we asked her out to lunch she was so excited and offered up a really awesome coupon! I was so happy she was excited because I was really excited to ask her to join us.

It was a perfect lunch + bright spot to our rainy day.
