I love the country and small town America.
Last Saturday I traveled with my mom, sister and our girls (granddaughter) cross country to
Old Concord, MN.
Mom grew up on a farm in West concord
The corn "is up".... barely
This old barn is about to see it's last days...
I wouldn't want to be near that silo or inside that barn on a windy day.
Mom (right) telling us about the area that she grew up,
where her dad and grandfathers farmed the land.
Remember the old playgrounds...
I remember playing in this very park and on this same equipment when I was a little girl.
The "Thomas" reunions were held here in the lot next to the Methodist Church.
My daughter Brie, and niece Jensen
The care-worn pony merry-go-round
My granddaughter Audrey and my niece Jensen.
Do you remember the last time you played on a teeter-totter.
There used to be three, side by side.
My favorite ride as a kid,
there were always a lot of kids on this one at the reunion!
My sister Jodi (left) with her daughter Jensen, and my grand Audrey.
Remember these flat metal slides?
Ended the day getting pedicures.
Love making memories with my daughter, it's so fun to have my Granddaughter hang out with her great-grandma, to hear the stories and to experience the places of yesteryear.
