During the night, the temperature dropped into the 30's and I made George light the fire in the pot bellied stove. We slept on air mattresses and I could feel waves of cold air from underneath. I could also hear creatures scampering on the tin roof. Not a great night for sleeping, but a wonderful getaway for us all. The next morning we met in town for breakfast with my parents and my brother and his family. In my family of origin, we are cemetery aficionados. We have ancestors on both sides of my parents' lines located in the same areas. There are several cemeteries that we can visit. My sister in law has done very detailed research on both sides and is extremely helpful in making family trees.
Riley appears to be as interested in history as I am and Mallory in her own seven year old way is too but also enjoyed having Annie the dog and her young cousins to interact with. She also loved climbing in the back of the pickup trucks! There is a little country in my city girl.
