Generations and generations...

WE JUST GOT  back from visiting family. First we had my husbands annual family reunion. There were folks from all over Oregon, California, Washington and even Nebraska, where they originally came out from. It was lots of fun. Got to see lots of familiar and some new faces. Then we were able to visit my Grandma. She'll be 98 years old next week! I just find that amazing.

When I think about the generations and all differences in them it makes my head spin. Just think of my Gran for example, as a girl they didn't even have indoor plumbing, let alone a phone and the modern conveniences we have today. To grow up with that and now to have cell phones and Skype, it's pretty amazing. I mean just think about car seats and cars these days. My Gran tells the story of bringing my Dad home from the hospital and she just stuck him in a box and placed him in the back window of the car! Seat belts, unheard of! Isn't it astonishing that folks grew up? Then there's all the cleanliness these days. I mean getting a drink out of the creek or a garden hose. Now we have to have bottled water! It gets a little crazy.

But it was a wonderful weekend full of family, good food and sun. I mean what could be better? My kids were able to enjoy their cousins that we never see. Lots of fun!

So now back to the routine. We have family visiting this week so if my posts are more sporadic, bear with me I'll be back!! Enjoy your day!!
