memories made

More from our trip…
this is my crazy family.
from left to right Richard, Faye, Bobby, Mike, Diane, Elaine, Kay (my mom), and Ella (my Grandmother).
when I suggested doing a jump shot my aunt Elaine said “oh goody, I have always wanted to do one of those!”
As you can she she really got in to it (third from right).

This is my mom with her siblings. I asked them to “act like siblings” and this is what they did. My mom actually has 5 sisters and 4 brothers but her brother Fred and sister Karen couldn’t make it to the weenie roast and are hence missing from this photo. From left to right Tom, Richard, Mike, Karen, Faye Bobby Elaine, and Kay (my mom).

Grandma with her children.

We couldn’t have asked for better weather and for more gorgeous light.

This my Aunt Faye, my Grandmother, and my mother standing in front of the lot where their childhood home was. The house has since been torn down and the land is now used for pasture but the barn is still standing…
This was really neat for me to see where my mom grew up. The last time I was in Indiana I was 11 so I don’t remember a lot of the details.

But the highlight of this trip for me was that Simon got to meet his great grandma for the first time.
A great time was had by all!
