Last week when I was home I was able to spend some time with my Grandparents. Kevin & I are both really lucky when it comes to grandparents. We had all 8 total still living up until just last year when Kevin's Grandfather passed. We are so blessed by the 7 we have with us, and even though they are all far away we love spending time with them when we can. Kevin even has a tattoo idea in the works that will be dedicated to our Grandparents!
Anywho, my Mom's parents have lived in the same house since my Mom was an infant. Such a long time! (no offense, Mom..) So many memories from my childhood took place in that house.We had numerous Summer picnics, Easter egg hunts, and family get togethers there over the years. My family and I even lived there for a short time when I was young, and its where I first learned to ride my bike!
The time has come for my Grandparents to down-size and they have found a lovely, and more manageable place. I got to visit the old home for the last time while I was there and even got to take a few keepsakes with me.
Such a beautiful place with beautiful memories.
Honestly, I can't imagine them living anywhere else.
It will just be a new place, with new memories to make & new pictures to take :)
This is my younger sister. I made her pose with this decorative lighthouse before we left because when she was 11 or so, she ran over it with a tractor. Then our Grandpa ran after her shouting profanities.
Like I said; beautiful memories :)
