21: Happy 100th Birthday Grandma! | Once, when visiting my Grandma and Grandpa, someone asked her if she was spoiling me. She told them that she would never spoil me, only love me a lot. I loved visiting because we walk to Conrads for ice-cream sodas, get bagels & put a penny on the tracks to get flattened by a train. When we went shopping it took all day because we went to the bakery, the butchers & a farmers market. We used to make a apple cinnamon cake together that made the whole house smell great.
