My two girls and I loaded up our trailblazer and surprised Grandma in Cincinnati a few weeks ago. It was fabulous. We crammed a weekend full of playing outside, taking photos and walking down memory lane. You see, when your husbands grandfather (who is a Veteran) is 103 and still lives in his home that he has lived in with his wife for over 70 years, with all of the original furniture that is now not just antiques but family treasures, you know the importance of photographing not only his home but everyone in it…especially Grandpa.
While we were in Cincinnati, we had the pleasure of seeing the rest of my husband’s family. My father in law planned the BEST dinner and had all the Slaughter family side over. It was perfect. The night was filled with little girls playing, grown ups playing like little girls, grown men dancing like little girls and everyone else laughing at them! We also made time for a family photo of course, only missing one kid (we love you, Uncle Kevin). This was very important to me. We have lived far away from Cincinnati for quite some time and my girls have been not so good travelers. Now that we are closer…This is what is important. Memories, family, good food and laughter.
