The One with the Big Deal

We had so much fun with Richie's family in Ohio. The kids went hiking and built a fort, Richie gave me a world history lesson, and me and Nancy made mexican food for everyone, among other things. When it was time for them to leave, Talan went and got his shoes and his DS and said he was going back to Alabama with them. We told him he would miss Tatum, so he said she could just come too. He was ready and willing to leave me and Steve forever to go live with Richie, Nancy, Ryan, Courtney, and Kyle.

The best thing that happened with Richie was when we were leaving the Homer Laughlin factory. He took my Grandma to the car just as a train was coming down the tracks right next to the Ohio River. Richie said, "Look Grandma, a train!" She said, "BIG DEAL. It's not like I've never seen a train before."

We died laughing.

I still laugh out loud every time I think about it. And, we say Big Deal in response to everything now.
