Alex remembers Grandma and Grandpa.
Carmen picked the children up from Grandma Reynolds' place so he could visit with them.
The way I heard it, Grandma & Grandpa Barret were rolling in money and Dad wasn't up to their standards... financially.
One day, when Destiny was with Grandma Reynolds and Jonathan was at staying with a friend, she decided to go down to the house before she went to the hospital.
Carmen arranged for the twins and Destiny to stay with Grandma Reynolds so that she wouldn't be distracted when her guests arrived.
It's feminine enough, but it looks like something grandma would wear.
Grandma & Grandpa Reynolds had already picked up Destiny.
I never met Grandma and Grandpa Barret.
