Field across the street from Mammy's house. See the standing water? There was a strong storm one night while we were there, which resulted in many of the fields turning into lakes

What can I say? :)
We had a wonderful time together in Indiana a couple weeks ago. I hope you enjoyed this little glimpse into our family vacation. :)


  1. Just curious if your Nanny and Papa have been married 70yrs, how old are they? They are sure young looking.

  2. Hi, Lisa! They are pretty young looking, aren't they? The Lord's definitely blessed them. For instance, when people hear how old Nanny is they simply don't believe it, because of the way she looks and how she's able to get around. :) The Lord's been very merciful!

    To answer your question, Nanny just turned 88 June 4th and Papa is 90; they married when they were 17 and 19 respectively, and will celebrate their 71st wedding anniversary this September. :)

  3. Such nice photos! Thanks for sharing these glimpses of your vacation with us!! My favorite photo is the last one!!! It describes a good visit to Grandma's house so well. Your vacations look a lot like our family vacations...reminds me of all the great memories I have of just "hangin'-out" with Grandma.
    Blessings to you!!
