Saturday we traveled to Minnesota. Hubby’s aunt had passed away so it was a trip to Austin, Minnesota for us. It’s always sad when anyone dies but it’s a little easier when they are 90 and are comfortable with passing away.
I snapped a few pictures when I was there.
Here’s one thing that I REALLY loved. I thought several other of you might like it too. Isn’t this the neatest idea? I would really like to talk to the people at our church and see if it’s something I could do at our church.
The note reads, “If you or anyone you know needs a quilt please feel free to take this one. No permission needed.” Isn’t that neat?
We live a half hour from church and it makes it hard to volunteer and help but this is something I could definitely do. I was impressed with whoever came up with this idea!
Anyway, the family had put together a nice display of photos from the family. I love old photos of family. There really aren’t many of them so I was surprised to see some that I hadn’t seen before. I thought I might ask for a copy of them but then instead decided to try to take a photo of the photo with my camera. Surprisingly it worked.
Hubby’s dad….The reason I love the picture so much is that this looks exactly the way he looked every day. He was a bib overalls man for sure. It was either this attire or his church clothes.
This is Hubby’s Aunt’s wedding picture. Check out that dress and head piece. That sure was a unique style that I’m glad passed before I married.
This is Hubby’s Grandma Kramer. I’ve only ever seen one other picture of her. Don’t you love the Christmas tree?? She must have gotten the coffee pot as a Christmas present. It was so special to be able to see these pictures.
His Grandma, shown in the picture, is the wife of Kasjen John Kramer. We named our son Kasjen John Kramer…that’s our son Buck’s real name…Kasjen. It’s pronounced Kash-en.
Hubby isn’t close to his cousins at all. I’ve only seen them a few times and we’ve been married 30 years. It turns out that one of his aunt’s grandchildren named their child Kasjen too only they spelled it Kashen…easier to pronounce. It was neat to see their little Kashen at a year old and know that our Kasjen was 26 years old.
I like the song and saying “all because two people fell in love” and this is one of those blog entries that really brings that to mind. I do think that the saying should be updated a bit though…it might better be “all because two people fell in love and worked at staying in love”.
It was a sad reason to be away but a great ending to the day….
