I'm Going to Grandma's!   

1     Sarah always enjoyed visiting her grandmother during the summer. Grandma Jean was a kind and energetic woman who always made sure to spoil Sarah during her week-long visit each July. She lived in a neighborhood in a perfect location in a city in the South. Her neighborhood was only a 30 minute drive to either a large city, a beautiful lake with a white, sandy shore or huge mountains.
 
2     Grandma Jean had plenty of space at her house, too. There was a large, fenced in yard, and she had a few chickens. Whenever Sarah was going to visit Grandma Jean, she didn't know what they'd end up doing. She just knew they'd have a LOT of fun.
 
3     One day, they would take an early morning train and head downtown. They'd spend all day in the city -- shopping, eating until they were more than full, and taking a horse and carriage ride. Another day, they would head to the beach, and spend the day relaxing and playing until there was barely any light left in the sky.
