Alex's Grandmother's Visit To Reno



Song:  Moon River

Artist:  Rumer



(en route to my mother's home)

Last week...
I had driven to my mother's home in California to drive her back to my home in Reno, NV
for a visit.

Almost all winter long...
the Sierra Nevada Mountains had received record low levels of snow...
except on the one night I had driven over the pass with my mother.

Sure enough...
on my drive home with my mother in my car...
the mountain pass was closed except for those cars with snow chains on...
or had full time 4 wheel drive capability (my car has full time 4 wheel drive).

It took us much longer to cross the mountains as it was snowing heavily...
but we made it without any problems.

Although my mother was initially only going to stay for a few days...
I had convinced her to stay for a few weeks.

I want her to move near me so I may watch after her...
and so I may take her with us whenever we go out.

I had her look at some living options here in Reno.

She is excited at the prospect of her living here...
as am I.


For our first dinner here...
I had taken her to eat Thai shrimp hot and sour soup...
and shrimp green curry.


The next day...
after I had shown her some neighborhood houses...
I had taken her to a nearby park.


My mother enjoyed the atmosphere of the park.
We had walked around some...
rested for a bit in the shade...
and walked some more.


Later that night...
I had taken Alex and my mother to the Atlantis Casino for dinner
on the Sky Terrace.

We had eaten at the Oyster Bar.




Alex had a crab dinner...
and my mother and I had eaten their excellent
Seafood Fettuccine.



Alex had a chocolate cake for dessert.

My mother and I had no room for dessert...
as our meals had filled us up completely.



The next day...
I took my mother out to our favorite Chinese restaurant for some hot and sour soup...
and for a lunch special of Mongolian Beef for me...
and Pad Thai for my mother 
(They also do some Thai and Vietnamese food here).


Alex's Grandmother saying hello to Alex as he was studying.


Alex loves his Grandmother...
and he will be accompanying us on our dinners out.

--------

My mother had gotten ill while she was here...
but she is better now.

I will have her just relax for the rest of the week.

Next week...
we shall resume our tour of the area.

In the meantime...
we will just relax and enjoy watching Korean dramas together...
and eating out at various restaurants.
