I thought before I dive into all my pictures from our vacation last week it might be helpful to explain a few things....and I seem to do that best with pictures. :)
See these three? This is my mom (center) and her brother and sister....they are each just 13 months apart! Disclaimer...my mom and aunt always look so nice and put together with their bright colors and coordinating jewelry, so I feel a little bad that is worked out to do group pictures right after a group swim...oops!
Sadly, tragically, their dad, a real life cowboy, died when they were 2, 1 and months old....their mom died when they were barely in their 20s. Because of this, much of the family history has been lost or just not pursued.
My cousin Melody has determined to use her talents and skill of researching to start putting some of the pieces together. I'm so excited to be joining her later this summer for a trip to Montana, where they were all born, where my grandparents love story began and where much of the family still lives. Its going to be an adventure and I can't wait!
Melody started in on the process by "interviewing" them. Gathering some fun childhood memories and collecting questions to take with us to the family in Montana.
