Trip down memory lane

It was a trip down memory lane today. Hubby and I went to his dads to pick up a load of firewood. We visited and surprised him with great grandpas girltourage. I love going there the memories flow. Hubby mom has been gone for twenty years or so. I miss her. She would be so excited to have so many grandbabies.

The girls were excited to see where grandma and grandpa hung out. We chatted with their mommy about fun times we shared at the house. How she used to eat lemon grass and loved sitting by the fire.
It reminded me of dating my Hubby. We hung out in the garage. I watched him fix stuff just like now. Ha

Good memories but sadly not one stich of the holidays were there. I felt bad for my father in law. The house is still the same. My mother in laws room she spent her final days the same. He made a comment as we teased him. His girlfriend was at Rose Hills. That’s love.

This is what our love has given us. knowledge that marriage is forever. Family is our bond and link to the future. Our family is growing so exciting. Next summer we will be blessed with another grandchild number ten. We are very blessed. Everytime I hear “The House that built me” by Miranda Lambert. I go back to the roots we were at today. I am grateful we still can share it with our family.

    Stopping in from CommenHour

    • Thank you for stopping by. I have neglected my baby for a while here so sorry for the delay. Memories are forever so making new ones are an important to build. They never knew their great grandma. She was amazing and I strive to be like her. Whats your favorite memory?

    • Thank you for stopping by and you bring up a great point. I need to do that. I also need to interview my parents. I guess that was kinda why I started to blog. To journal and them I never expected people would read and comment. MamaKat put a great blog up yesterday and I am gonna follow suggestions. I always enjoy you post MJ thanks for sharing.

    I was in my old neighborhood last week in San Fernando Valley and I thought about going to the house I grew up in. I think it would be weird, just going up to the door and saying can I come in. I feel like it would resolve a lot of things just being there. I loved it. Cute pictures of the girls.

    • Candi was soo cool for the girls to visit. Memories are meant to be shared. I wonder if you drive by and stopped what would happen? It would be neat. Never know ?? Hope to catchup with you we live so close. Thanks for stopping by.

    Such lovely memories!! I took my kids back to the neighborhood I grew up in this past summer and snapped some great photos too. It’s such a special thing to be able to recapture some of those moments!
