A Piece of Family History

We’ve had a busy few days here. My aunt and a dear family friend visited for three days from Colorado. We went on adventures in the mornings and I worked in the afternoons. It will take a few posts to tell everything we did.

I had to wonderful surprise of my aunt bringing boxes from my grandparents old house. Many things were my mother’s. I loved seeing them, as she died when I was very little. I plan to make a shadow box with some of her trinkets. I have a huge stack of drawings and letters I sent my grandparents over the years to go through. Looks like they kept everything!

The biggest surprise was the old kiddie car I remembered as always being at my grandparents house. I knew it was old, but my grandpa said on the phone that it had belonged to my grandma’s mom. Grandma was born in 1916, so that car is old! A metal piece was added to the steering rob by my grandpa at one point, and one of my mom’s cousins added a target sticker to the handle. But otherwise, it’s remained the same. I have a photo of myself riding it as a little girl.

It will have a place of honor in our home, and one day Jax can pass it on to his children.

Another fun hand-me-down was the puzzle my grandpa made. I remember it from the toy cabinet at their house. Jax was amazing me with how good he is at it! I have to take a video of it soon.

Danny took a video of Jax on the kiddie car that will be in the next post.
